WIP Wednesday – 07.20.2011 Edition

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to talk about WIPs! I’m really glad I added this feature to the blog, if for no other reason than I occasionally think “Oh, crap, it’s almost Wednesday, I better pull that project out and get to stitching!” πŸ™‚

Inchies at The Daily Inchie

I think my favorite inchie from the last week is actually the one I made just yesterday: my Google+ inchie:

As more of my friends (and favorite people) have started migrating to Google+, I’ve spent more and more time there, and less and less on Facebook, so I figured my new obsession deserved an inchie all it’s own.

Other Projects – Ongoing

Very little progress on my Sheep Mandala this week – finished the flower in the lower left and started work on the 3rd sheep:

I really need to put more work into this one soon, so I can move on to another project for October’s open house!

Other Projects – New

Two new projects this week – First, I’m starting on the Blackbird Designs Stocking series – first up is “In The Days of Auld Sang Lyne” (stitched on 40 count Lakeside Linen in Light Exampler 1 over 2 with the called for overdyed threads):

Second, I started knitting again (I know, crazy, right?) – I’m still swatching, so for now I’ll leave you with a pretty yarn photo:

I’m kind of funny when it comes to knitting – while I generally don’t knit with my thread, I don’t like to knit with anything bigger than lace weight yarn. I’m thinking this skein will be a nice, long scarf for me! The yarn is Filigran Lace No 1 in colorway Taiga. If you are in the Seattle area, this yarn is currently 20% off at Weaving Works – if you like working with soft merino singles, go grab a skein or 12 πŸ™‚

What have you been working on this week? Leave a comment below and point us to your blog, flickr, tumblr post, or anywhere else you are showing off your latest creations. Can’t wait to see them!!

Happy Stitching!
