Work In Progress Wednesday v.2

Wow, that was fast!  It's Work In Progress Wednesday (WIPW).  Again.  And since it was so much fun last week, and since it motivated me to knit like a fiend (or as much like a fiend that someone with a full time job and 2 hours a day in the car can knit), I'm up for another round! 

If you'll recall, last week's WIP looked a lot like this (pretty much exactly, in fact)...
And now (drum roll, please!), it looks like this:

Ta da!  Okay, it's not a ton.  But at least there's some progress, right?  I'm thinking, if I'm going to keep up with this whole WIPW plan, I'll need to have at least one more project on the needles.  For variety's sake.  I mean, I have to think of my readers, right?  I'll take one for the team, I guess.  Come to think of it, I do have some sock yarn calling me.  It's this:

And I'm thinking it might want to grow up to be these.  Cute, no?

They'll have to wait a bit, though.  Tomorrow, I fly off to Albuquerque to visit one of my best friends from 3rd grade for the weekend, while Mr. Right flies off to visit his folks.  Good times shall be had by all.  At least that's what I'm hoping and praying...


  1. hehe I like crochet because it works up fast! But knitwear looks so gorgeous so it's worth the time! I'd probably take the whole month to do that =P

  2. You made a TON of progress! Also, very cute, so I vote for those socks to be your second project. :)

  3. that sock yarn would be beautiful knitted up into those :)

  4. love that cabled band around the bottom, and you've made a lot of progress! I scrolled down and read about your family mysteries -- the makings of a great novel, methinks! You should give it a try someday.

  5. i like your idea about wednesdays! i was considering do a "finishing Friday" thing...if i have anything close enough to finish on a friday...:) the family mysteries are tres interesant! oh, and thanks, i've now added another 2 patterns to my queue! (the socks and the sweater!)

  6. That sock pattern looks like a good one!

  7. Hey! I found your blog on The Blog Hub group on Ravelry.

    WIPW is a great idea! I wish I thought of that, hehe. Though, I'm not really doing any big projects at the moment, but, oh well. (;

    Oh, goodness. Those socks will be beautiful!! :D Haha.
