WIP Wednesday

I guess I am getting into the habit of posting late at night, once I am home from work. My schedule has turned a little odd, but I'm still waiting to hear about the possibility of moving to full time, instead of working near full time hours but not having the benefits of it.

This past week has been pretty much about knitting. I just can't seem to put it down and am finding it very relaxing, even if I am frustrated with the project. I do have other things I want to get to this month (FAL list, I am looking at you!) but am so close to finishing a scarf that it's all I want to do.

Let's get on with this week's progress.


Nothing this week.

Progress Made:

Camp Loopy Project 1 - last week I shared a photo of this scarf before I frogged it again. It's hard for me to believe that it's only been a week and I am nearly finished with it now. My ball of yarn is about the size of a pool ball and rapidly shrinking. My goal is to finish by tomorrow night so I can lightly block it on Friday.

Fern Lace Scarf WIP

Cachou Cowl - I managed a little work on this while on my dinner break the other night. Nothing too noticeable though.

Hand Quilting Challenge - I shared my top yesterday and will give an update on this over the weekend. Just 10 more days until the linky party!
