WIP Wednesday for 6 December 2017

There has been a surprising lack of progress on knitting this week. I guess that’s because I spent a lot of what would have been craft time addressing and mailing the first (and second) batch(es) of Christmas cards.

However, there has been some knitting! I have a few knitted gifts still on the needles, so I can’t stop knitting entirely.

First up is the latest coffee cup sleeve:

This one is a bit taller than the others. It still fits well, though I neglected to do the short row shaping that’s in the pattern. (I got carried away and missed the wrap & turn instructions.) I also just noticed that the color is way off in the WIP photo. I was emphasizing the stitch contrast when I took that picture and didn’t even pay attention to the fact that the color looked nothing like the real thing. The FO picture is closer to true.

I’ve also made progress on my gift scarf:

I’m on to the second ball of yarn now, so if all goes well I’m halfway done. I’m hoping that I’ll like the length when I’m done with this ball of yarn so that I don’t have to wait for more yarn to arrive in the mail.

Still, pretty decent progress overall! Have a great rest of the week, everyone!
