WIP Wednesday - Two Sweaters

I made progress on one WIP this week... and started another. Oops. I made no progress on my Hello, Hello shawl or Spero hat. Maybe this week? We're having a Muppet Movie Marathon today, so I hope to get lots of knitting done.

Here is my Branches and Buds sweater Monday morning. Finished the branches and divided the body and sleeves on the weekend.

Stretched out, the branches lay flat.

Here's where I am at today. Started the second skein of the cream colour. Still have several inches to knit so it is a great movie marathon knit.

And I needed something that worked up quick, so I started an Owlet for my youngest on Sunday. Did the first 6 inches in less than 2 hours. I made him an Owlet when he was little and he was sad when I told him it was too small. He picked out the blue yarn for this one. I already have yellow buttons for Owl eyes. He'll receive this sweater for Christmas.

Today I finished the body. Need to make two little sleeves, join them to the body and then I get to knit the owls. He's 4, but I'm making him a size 5/6 hoping it will fit him for a few years.

Figured out I have yarn for at least 5 more sweaters/ cardigans in my stash that I want to knit up this year - two of them are Christmas presents. And I need to buy yarn for at least one more sweater that will be a Christmas present. Guess I should get back to the Muppets and knitting.

What have you been working on this week?

WIP Wednesday

Made progress on several projects this week. Even started two new ones. Oops.

Here is my yarn ready to cast on a Branches and Buds sweater for my August Camp Loopy project. Yarn can be found here. It's super soft and I can't wait to wear it.

Cast on yesterday and knit the first branch. Ready to start the second. Doesn't look too bad and stretches. 

A peek at the inside.

Started a Spero hat. Pattern is by Jen and for Jen. If you send her a hat for her Hat-athon in support of Halos of Hope, she'll gift you the pattern for free. For more info, you can read Jen's blog post, here.

And no WIP post last week as I hadn't made any progress on the WIP's I had. Sat down with my Hello, Hello shawl last Friday night and finished the striped section and started the garter section. This thing is going to be huge. Now to force myself to finish it. I really want to wear it but I've had a hard time getting myself to actually knit it. Not sure I've ever had this problem before.

Closer look at all three sections.

And I finished the first sock of a super bright pair. I admit the sock sat on my desk for several days just waiting for me to do the Kitchener stitch at the toes and finish it. 

What have you been working on this week? Not sure if I'll have any finishes to share this Friday, but i should be back next Wednesday with more progress on these WIP's.
