WIP Wednesday

Welcome to another WIP Wednesday! It’s a gorgeous sunny day in Portland, but don’t worry, we’re still knitting up a storm as always. We have some fresh new things to share, as well as some amazing progress on older projects. Here goes!
Oleya is quickly approaching the finish line on her Stripe Study Shawl. Check out how far she’s gotten since last week!
Sandy has been working on the Rhombus Wrap from Ori Ami Knits in Habu A-134 Aresco Cotton. The top has an interesting geometric construction and the fabric is crisp and lightweight, perfect for summer. Just a few more rows to go!
After completing her Madelinetosh Pashmina masterpiece (check it out here!), Lindsay is making a second Draper shawl, this time in Shibui Staccato in Dijon.
Anna shared her beautiful “bus knitting” project, a Citron shawl knit in Madelinetosh Prairie in Earl Grey. This yarn… sigh. Such a gorgeous neutral, but with subtle hints of color.
Jenny has made tons of progress on her Big Herringbone Cowl, knit with Shibui Merino Alpaca in Ivory. So cozy!
Eva has been hard at work lately, first with her Rose Red beret knit with Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK in Moorland. The yarn is an incredibly soft single-ply and gives these cables awesome stitch definition!
Secondly, as part of a knitalong, Eva’s working on a summery Liesl pullover in Habu A-1 Tsumugi in color 27 and SKIF Cotton Yarn in Banyon. The product of much swatching with many different yarn combinations, this one is a clear winner.
As for me, because I clearly don’t have enough things on needles already (ha!), I cast on for a Horai scarf the other night, knit with Shibui Silk Cloud in brand-new Graphite. With just over an inch done it’s hard to say how this one will turn out, but I do know that I am absolutely crazy about this color!
How are all of your spring projects coming along? Drop us a line, even send some pictures, and your lovely knits might soon be featured right here on this blog! Hope to hear from you soon, and happy knitting!
