WIPs Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!

It's been a long week.  The type of long week that starts by counting down the days till the weekend before 10 am on Monday.  No particular reason for the long week.  It usually happens when I have a vacation or something really fun planned for the weekend.  Nothing particularly exciting this weekend other than a yarn related tea party and shopping for a friends new car.  Neither of which would cause the week to be drawn out.

I don't have a lot to show you this week.  My list is basically the same from last Wednesday.  The only changes are that I finished the Slime Time socks and cast on a new pair of socks in 15 color Rainbow.

Fab Funky Fibres from the UK makes this 15 color rainbow self stripping yarn that is gorgeous.  It has silvery threads mixed in for some sparkle.

I've knit the ribbing and about an inch of the cuff.

**Please forgive the blurry image.  I've still got a wonky camera and haven't had time to take it in.

I've also spent time working on the Shallows cowl.  I'm about a quarter of the way through that.  I haven't worked on anything else this week.  I'm planning on working on my Emelie cardigan tomorrow at knit night and am itching to cast on for the Ravello sweater.  I just need to trade yarn skeins with a friend who thinks that her light grey has too much purple in it.

We're both using the same greys-one light and one dark for the Ravello.  She'll be using a black for her stripes and I will be using a zauberball with purples and other stripy goodness in my stripes.  My stripes will have stripes.  In any case more purple in the light grey will blend in better on my sweater than hers.

What have you got on your needles?
