Work in Progress Wednesday 137

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week so far. My husband and I have had a fun and busy week so far! We've done a few things to the house we've been wanting to since buying it, caught up with some friends, did some shopping and today we're going to Downtown Disney!



First off, before I get into WIPW, I wanted to let you all know about my Easter /Passover sale at candyskein.com! I'm offering 15% off now through March 31st. Just enter code EASTERSALE at the time of checkout.

Also, don't forget that Holly (Sillylittlelady) and I have a KAL starting on April 15th! For full details, please visit this post.



Now to WIPW!




I have something new to share with you today! I got the sweater itch the other day, so I cast on Jane Richmond's Ladies Classic Raglan Pullover. I wanted something mindless to work on, and a pullover (which I have yet to make) that I could just throw on with anything and go. I'm using Candy Skein Yummy Worsted in a new colorway (though a slightly lighter version of it), Watermelon! I am so excited about this project. I have two more rows before I cast on a few more stitches for the front of the neck and join! I have to say, I'm also very excited because this might be the first project I got gauge using the correct needles (both row AND stitch) the first time! Remember how tight I used to knit!?! So exciting!

That's it for me today. I hope you all have a great rest of the week. I'll see you back here Friday where I show you my Variance finished (or at least blocking)!

    1. If you practiced you could totally make more than a scarf! As long as you know knit and purl you can make anything!

  13. I like the points of that shawl. I wish I could join along but too much on my plate. I'll have fun watching from the sidelines.
    The watermelon colorway is great for this so-called spring and so Easterish. I just might order some yarn.
