Wip's and Winners!

Well it is Wednesday, update time for the Wip's I'm gonna confess about...(shhh...don't tell the other ones I'm not giving them any glory right now ok! ;)

6 rows and bind off away from my Waterlilies Outta the Pool sock 1...
Everyone Outta the Pool

Taiyo sweater is coming along, not as fast as I want, but one can only knit with this yarn for a little while. Most likely 4-5" and then ribbing to go..we'll see. Trying to embrace the Noro striping whatever the way it wants to.
Taiyo Sweater
This is great purse knitting...um...no my purse isn't that big LOL! This has it's own purse, but it is perfect for mindless and knitting around others...

This one however, right now is only hometime knitting....you see that middle cabled section...yeah, that's why. You are doing something on both the knit and purl side, whew, and some of them stitches are a doozy. But I love it!
Creature Comfort Cardi
Creature Comforts Cardi (sorry only on Ravelry) by Madelinetosh It's called a cardi, but no buttons and is more like a shrug...you'll see later ;)

Yarn is Dream in Color, Cloud Jungle colorway. I've been collecting this yarn for a while. A destash here and there and the last couple of skeins on sale from Woolgirl (sadly closed). Because of this, I am knitting from 2 skeins (2 rows each skein). I didn't on my Mr. Lipstickjeans and I wished I had...I thought it would be a pain, but not so. Another reason it's not so portable.

Oh and I know you're all gonna ask about my yarn bowls. Souviners from the 2 SAFF trips.
Left is from Potterknitter and right one is from Knit Witch.

You have some great projects going! The socks are so pretty and the Taiyo sweater will be nice! I LOVE the cloud jungle colorway. It's going to look great as that cardi/shrug. And what great cables! I love the leaves.

Lovely WIPs! I like the Noro sweater - it took me a while but eventually I got used to just going with the striping. :)

And I'm so happy to have won the Knitcircus subscription, thanks for holding the contest!
