WIP Wednesday!

We’ve been promising a big staff project post for quite some time now, but with all the comings and goings we had some trouble corralling everyone’s projects into one place. But sometimes the stars align, and luckily I was able to borrow (almost) all of our staff projects for the afternoon! So, welcome to the first WIP Wednesday, our inaugural weekly staff project showcase! We’ve been knitting up a storm around here lately and thought today would be the perfect time to share our lovelies with all of you.

Anna has been working on the slouchy Lemon top from Marianne Isager’s Amimono Knit Collection 2010 in Isager Wool 1. I’m loving the way the lace weight knits up in this ridged texture!

William, one of our more beginning knitters, is the first of us to venture forth with Artyarns Cottonspring, a brand new yarn at Knit Purl. He’s knitting a sweet baby sweater (his very first sweater project!).

Oleya chose the gorgeous Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in scarlet Longhorn Beetle to make her Goodale cardigan. This color is absolutely stunning, and she’s making such fast progress!

Jenny is hard at work on the always stylish Big Herringbone Cowl from Purl Soho, knit in scrumptious Shibui Merino Alpaca in Ivory.

Lindsay is speeding right along on her Featherweight Cardigan, in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Charcoal. She is seriously determined to finish this sweater as soon as possible, and I think her progress so far shows her dedication!

This adorable pixie hat, knit with luxurious Buffalo Gold Heaven and Joseph Galler Belangor, is one of a set of two for Kristin’s neighbor’s new twin girls (the other is still on the needles). It’s unbelievably soft and almost unbearably cute!

Finally, here is the beginning of my Sugared Violets shawlette, in what I think might just be my new favorite yarn, Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in Tulip-Tree Beauty. So cushy and cozy, I can’t put it down.

What about you? We’d love to hear what knitted beauties you’ve been working on! I now consider myself to have a standing date with all of you readers, so be sure to check back next Wednesday for another update on our project progress! See you then!
