wips week.

this was a good week for knits. i managed to cast off 3 of the 4 projects living on my needles. today, a little show and a bit of tell!

 can you see the owls? this is my “seekrit” project, and i love the way it turned out!

and here is my montego bay scarf, made with the ever-so-buttery malabrigo lace. my favourite brand of yarn! can’t believe i didn’t freak out tying on all that fringe, hah.

my feet are also super happy; not to mention super cozy, in these awesome socks. the colour is amazing, and i can see more socks knit with dream in colour “smooshy” in my future. my momma and mister are already owners of hand-knit smooshy socks – lucky ducks!

so only one more wip is left on my needles, but three more are waiting in the wings to be cast on. today i have to swatch for the selfish knitter’s knitalong; we’re knitting Aidez, and that starts on monday.

then i’ll need to get to work on some mittens… for myself and my mister. i was heartbroken to hear that he somehow lost one of his malabrigo chevalier mitts :( kind of makes me a bit sick to my stomach, but in the end it’s just a mitten right? yes it has sentimental value, but we still have a roof over our heads – lol.

have a great week, friends!!
