My Knitting List

WIP Wednesday

Don't fall over, but there has been quilting progress!  I've been piecing the sashing on to Infinity Star.  I still need to sew the last two rows together and then add the two borders.  After I started cutting, I wasn't sure I'd like the dark green I chose for the sashing, but now that I see it from a distance I think it looks alright.  It's from the stash so it's gotta be good right?!?!

Last month I had a poll to decided which sweater pattern I should knit after I finished Flint.  Well, no I didn't finish Flint, but I did cast on the winning pattern, Elphaba.  Flint is currently hibernating for a bit until I figure out how to proceed with the sleeves...they're too wide.  So last week I cast on Elphaba.  So far it's going well, the neckline is taking shape and I'm about to split for the sleeves. 

The yarn is Madelinetosh Merino Light.  I've knit with the Tosh DK yarn, but this is my first time knitting with Merino Light.  I love the colorway (Blug Gingham), but I'm not particularly liking Merino Light because it comes untwisted.

In a little bit we're going to go to the running store and pickup new walking (me)/running (hubby) shoes.  Yahoo!
