WIP Wednesday

After all the sewing I've done lately, it's back to knitting in full force! Here are my two latest projects ... above, a pair of no-purl monkeys (Ravelry pattern page) I'm starting early for Socktoberfest (a month-long celebration of the sock that happens each October). The yarn is Miss Babs Yummy Sock Yarn, in the colorway Duck, Duck, Quack. The rich reds, golds, and yellows remind me of fall foliage, so these socks are my little celebration of fall.

Below, I've cast on with the gorgeous Malabrigo I snagged in St. Louis to start my Mom's Vest from the Fall 2011 issue of Knit Simple. The back is plain stockinette, but the front will have some great cables. The Malabrigo, as usual, is knitting up like a dream. It feels like a soft cloud! Love, love, love all around.

  2. The vest looks so soft, and it's a great colour, too.

  3. Okay, that first pic with the 4 needles looks awesome and scares the heck out me all at once! And that is why I stick to crochet and just secretly dream of being cool enough to manage that! :-)

  9. Oh, how wonderful! That sock yarn is gorgeous.

    If I didn't already have a number of projects that MUST be finished this month, I would happily join in for the Socktober fun -- I wish I'd learned of it sooner.
