WIP Wednesday - Pinks and Purples

Hello all!  I am happy to announce that the Gryffindor scarf is done and you will all see a FO post soon.  I still need to finish the last wristlet but for all intents and purposes I am done.  I have ends to weave in and fringe to add but the bulk of the work is done.

Life is settling down though my class is still not straightened out.  I have a feeling I may have to take a half day of work and track down my professor.  Seriously, how hard is it to set up a weekly call?

I am super excited because I bought the fifth season of The Big Bang Theory!  Target also had a cool cup that had the Big Bang Theory Logo and Bazinga! so of course I have to have it. What is more awesome is that I named my Fantasy Football Team Bazinga!

How awesome is this cup!
Anyway, aside from getting the scarf done, I started a new project and restarted an old one this week. So here are the updates.

Falling Water Scarf

I finally picked this up again.  I kept looking at it forlornly as I worked on other things but it is back with prominence in my knitting bag.  I think doing other lacey things have made me realize how easy this pattern has become.  I have done 4 repeats of the pattern and it's amazing how fast you can whip through it when it's only about 35 stitches wide.

I just love the color!

Richmond Lace Infinity Scarf

I saw this pattern on Knit Picks this spring and fell in love with the color and the pattern.  The yarn is variegated from purple to coral pink.  I needed a bit of help getting started but the progress for an evening's work is shown below.  I did make a boo boo and have to rip back a bit but it's okay.  I would rather make this right than wing it.

Just purple right now!

Well there you have it.  I hope to get more work done on these this week and maybe start the foundation row of the Sweet Azalea Shawl I am working on as well.

So what colors are you kicking off fall with?  What are you starting or working on?

  1. Both your new WIPs looks fantastic! I hope the booboo is an easy fix!

    1. Thanks! Yeah the boo boo is pretty easy i just counted wrong but if I don't fix it the whole scarf will be off.

  2. Nice cups! The scarf looks nice :)

  3. Looks like you are excited for Fall with all of those scarves, you are going to be super cosy with those gorgeous projects that's for sure! Beautiful work!

    1. Thanks! I hope these go faster than the hogwarts scarf.
