It's Wednesday so here are some WIPs

We went out of town for the long weekend and I had a total of 4 hours car time and a baseball game which lasted 2 1/2 hours. So I decided it was time to cast on Annikki. This photo doesn't do justice to the lovely color of the Cascade 220 in Garnet Heather - I just love the color. I'm about 22 inches into the project and while it is boring stockinette stitch it is satisfying to know I've put a big dent on this bug project.

I've stalled on Miss America's Tempteen II as I started the first sleeve and found this yucky bit where I dropped a stitch and it didn't pick up nicely. I need to frog it and I know it is only an inch and a half but I'm annoyed and don't want to do it right now. Perhaps I rip it out today.

Last week I grabbed some yarn and the pattern for Wisp and cast on during my daughter's choir concert. I think I need Addi lace needles as the K2 together bit of the pattern isn't easy with my Addis. Any suggestions - I've never been a big lace knitter. The color is lovely - I picked this yarn up at Rhinebeck last fall.

Oh, and the lovely project bag I picked up at the LYS the other day. It is so bright and cheery and I love toting it around.

OOh - look at all that loveliness.

Yes - go back to Knitting Central and pick up some Turbo Addi lace needles. You'll be so glad you did.

Have a great weekend!
