1. Robin by Lee Meredith in Infinite Twist Qinghai Handspun in Oceana and Larkspur. Done, just need to weave in ends and block. 

2. Randle socks (with heavy modifications) in Blissful Knits Inspire in Full Bloom. I ran into ugly trouble of the mathy kind trying to figure out the heel with all the changes I've made. I got frustrated, and decided to try something new - the Fish Lips Kiss heel by The Sox Therapist. As it says on the pattern, "All patterns $1 each, so you can do the right thing!" I am hopeful this method will be the solution to all my heel problems. 

3. Custom Fit Sweater Vest in Infinite Twist Helix in Wine Bar. I am so excited to wear this! It fits like a math major worked out compound rates of shaping on my behalf. 

4. Prairie Ridge Shawl in Halo Heather in Box of Chocolates. This is my heartbreak project. Why are there not more hours in the day? Gah! I have been wanting to knit this for weeks (scratch that,  months) and have been hoarding every little scrappy end bit from various kits and dye lots. 

What are you working on this week?
