Work in progress Wednesday

This is my first ever submission to Work in Progress Wednesday with Tami's Amis. Hopefully this will encourage me to take more photos of my works in progress, rather than waiting until they're finished!


Check out my cardigan, see how it's grown! I love this wool, it's from New Lanark and the colour is called blueberry. There are so many cute colours of wool in that shop, if this cardigan works then I'm definitely going back for some bramble, pebble and heather. I should do a review of New Lanark at some point, it's a lovely place for a day out!


I had a scary moment last week where I thought this was coming out too large, but luckily I rechecked my guage and I think I'm safe! It's a Ysolda Teague pattern, 'Coraline' off Ravelry and so far has been pretty straightforward, check out my first attempt at provisional cast-on! It's growing slowly but that's more because I haven't been doing a huge amount of knitting recently, by the time I'm done studying for the night I can generally only stay awake for about half an hour before I have to give in and crawl into bed, so not a huge amount of knitting gets done. I'm away to Andrew's folks in Inverness for the weekend though so I reckon I'll get quite a bit done there.


Ooo, excitement! I love watching a big knitting project grow!

Welcome to WIPW! That yarn is lovely, and I can't wait to see how your cardigan turns out. I'm such a fan of Ysolda's patterns -- they're fun to knit and they always seem to turn out beautifully. Enjoy!

The more I see New Lanark yarn the more I covet it. Its pretty reasonably priced as well, if I remember correctly.

The colour you have chosen is lovely.

I always get loads of knitting done when I got to the in-laws as well, but I can knit in the car as well as while I'm there.

Welcome to WIPW! I LOVE the color of that yarn. It's beautiful!

Your stitches are so clean and even. Great job! I can't wait to watch this project grow over time! I hope you're able to get more done on your visit!

What a lovely project. The blue yarn is very appealing! I haven't tried Ysolda's patterns yet, but have her Ishbel shawl near the top of my queue. Welcome to WIPW.

What a lovely color! I have Coraline on my to-knit list also. It looks like such a wearable and classic cardigan pattern. Hope you get loads of knitting time soon to work on it!
