WIP Wednesday

Well, actually an FO. They happen so rarely in Karin's World these days! It's been a very pleasant November so far, no need for a scarf yet, but I will definitely be ready with this one, and the same design done in Manos a while back. The WIP's are the same, Sock Madness design, "Lupine Lace" socks, diagonal progression pullover and a couple others that shall remain nameless until done - my bad startitis has become a little overwheming!

The yarn porn is, as always yummy, and has helped me deal with a rather trying week, I will be so relieved to graduate!
I have my first Liza Souza, and it is all that I've read - luscious! One skein is reserved for a KAL. Some Araucania Atacama in berry tones for a fitted cardigan. And from Reynolds, the 50/50 silk and wool Rapture, for a big, fat, Friday-in-front-of-the-fireplace pullover.





My new design in Yarntini's "Fig and Plum, Wilhemina Venom models my scarf (and Frankie approves), and Louet Gems Pearl for the Lupine Lace Socks.


Liza Souza "Sock!" and Araucania Atacama. Mm-m-m, atacama....

The scarf is gorgeous! I love the color.

And what a coincidence, today, I was looking for the Yarntini's yarn for the very first time (I know, I must live under a rock, lol) and that is the Fig & Plum was the first colourway that grabbed my eye. Lovely!

Karin, you have the best yarn porn! Beautiful scarf and socks. Good luck with your studies, I'm so impressed by women who manage families, work, school, and not least, knitting. :-}

Mmmm...you DO have the best yarn porn, Karin. Having been a grad student, mom, etc. I don't know how you manage to get any knitting done. That Araucania is making me drool...
