A couple Christmas break WIPs

I started my Christmas vaca with a few new WIPs.

Shaw Hill

shaw hill 1 skeinI was concerned about knitting with such a big needle but it’s been fun – and quick progress isn’t hard to be happy about.

The dye has rubbed off on everything it touches though – my hands and the cuffs of my sleeves both turned a bluish-purple.  Luckily the dye came out completely in a laundering with a dose of bleach.

Mini Skein Blender Socks

I stalked the tracking on this one as it made its way across the country.  You do that too, right?

I split the skeins in half so I could use them up fairly equally.  I’m onto the second color now and I feel a mini skein obsession coming on.

I won’t buy more mini skeins.  I won’t buy more mini skeins.

If I knit these fast enough I can buy more, right?

I’ll catch you on the purl side.
