I had Knitting ADD this week, and worked on a million different things. I’ve only brought the interesting ones…
~Driftwood by Isabel Kraemer
This is for another class; making it with Cascade 220 in Satine
~Sin City Yarns Sock - this is the yarn I bought in Las Vegas, I wanted to see how it knit up
~Orange Opal Socks. Tried out a new heel that might work to not alter the stitch counts
Boomerang heel, with some modification. Essentially its just a short row heel.
~Helix Knit Hat - made with leftovers of the other projects

Sylvia
I’m a pretty monogamous knitter, and I just cast off a top-secret project - so I haven’t really started another one yet.
A new malabrigo version of The Triangle Cowl will likely be what I’m knitting on.
A few more short row-y things upcoming but they take forever to design so I need breaks.
Textured shawls? I’ve designed two and I think they’ll be amazing as all hell but I am struggling with yarn choice.
I have too many ideas, those are my WIPs.
