Wednesday already!

Well seeing as it is, I may as well join in WIP Wednesday!
Well I am STILL working on the baby cardigan (Unbend cabled baby cardigan), I managed to get a big chunk done on Sunday but things have slowed down again since. I am challenging myself to get it finished this week though, but probably not by Friday!
I should have really put in button holes, but as the pattern doesn't state where to put them I just didn't bother. I could maybe just put loops on to fasten it with.
Yesterday on a bit of a whim I decided to cast on Mizzle, I have had a bit of an urge to do another shawl, I intended to use a sock yarn I had bought for a different shawl but its just to fuzzy, so I have used a ball of sublime merino 4ply I bought on a whim because it was on sale and purple, I only have two balls so not sure I have enough but we will see.

As you can see I haven't got far! I have used a set of fixed hiyahiya needles but to be honest I think they are a bit slippery so I am going to switch to my knitpro's.
Although I am not enjoying using them on the baby cardigan as the yarn keeps getting caught on the join, I also managed to snap one of the tips, whilst putting the sleeve stitches onto spare cables.

If you want to see some more WIP's head over to Tami's Amis


  1. Mizzle is a lovely pattern! It'll be gorgeous in that lilac yarn you've chosen!

  2. Ooooh love that yarn for your mizzle. Look forward to seeing that done.

    Thanks for sharing


  3. I hope your needle issues clear up soon. Love the shawl and such a sweet cardi.
