WIP Friday

When Fiona instituted WIP Friday, she asked crafters (who tend to work on tables, not from an easy chair) to capture pictures of their desks. Since I, for the first time since I've lived with Aaron, actually have a work room of my own these days, I've been storing my knitting on my desk, rather than various baskets and magazine racks shoved into Ruby-proofed corners of the living room. So here is my messy desk (note that the room itself is still a WIP).

What am I working on these days. Well, I have dozens of projects in my head and even have acquired supplies for some of them (including Hillary Lang's adorable Stichette kit) but my main project on the go is my final pair of Project Spectrum socks, pictured above. I'm doing a simple rib from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks in a black and white striped Opal sock yarn. I'm also still working on Jess Hutch's Squarey, but he's been pushed back behind the backburner.

Also on my desk you see some Noro Kureyon, which is intended to become the children's ribbed scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I'm not sure who it'll be gifted to, but I liked the idea of working with Kureyon, which I've amazingly never tried out before. This pattern really maximized the weirdness of Kureyon's colourways and should be easy-peasy. Also on the desk is a book called Supernatural by Graham Hancock that Aaron's uncle lent him. I'm not going to go into it.

Thanks to everyone who sent their birthday wishes via the blog or otherwise. I had a great birthday and was more than spoiled by my loved ones. Hooray.

Nice-looking sock, but what I really love is the bag! Where did you get it?

Thanks Emma! I love the bag too. I have no idea where it came from -- it was from a secret pal from about six months ago. It's a perfect size for a skein of yarn or two and a few notions and I've been using it a lot.
