WIP's Wednesday

Thought I would do an update on the projects that I'm currently working on. I've finished a lot of projects recently but still have a few languishing WIP's and a couple new ones.

I'm working on another baby gift set for a co-worker, it's a boy! She works at the quilting storefront of my job and this is her second grandson, Skylar. Went with my usual bib, baby size garter squish, and I'm about halfway through the hat.

I also have a semi-new sock WIP. I started these as social knitting for a women's conference I was attending at my church. These are luxury socks for me because the content of the yarn is superwash merino, alpaca, silk, and nylon. I can't wait to get these on my feet!

Along with this sock wip I'm still working on the socks mentioned in this post...second sock syndrome strikes. Thankfully Tracie and Jodi from Grocery Girls Podcast are doing a second sock KAL this summer that I plan to join #singlesocksummerkal

I haven't started another shawl, but I did start a scarf wrap hybrid. I've knit about 5 inches of it but I've decided to knit on it while I'm in Germany so it's going to sit for a bit.

One of my good friends that I work with just moved into a new apartment! So excited for her! Claire is amazing and makes me laugh multiple times a day so I decided she did a little hand made for her new place. She is a wonderful quilter and a fledgling knitter, but her best talent is her cooking and baking. She's a genius, so I knit her some wash/dish cloths in her favorite color. I only need to weave in the ends and sew a button on. (I have a third washcloth but I can't find it...)

Fun knitting times in the life of Sierra. I'm trying to clear some projects out because I leave in 6 days!


  1. wow! do you have lots on the needles :) all gorgeous and beautiful, I wish I could explode with lots of projects but I'm patiently waiting for my hand/wrist to behave. Hopefully soon and then I can catch up with you!!

    1. I'm actually going to finish the majority before Tuesday of next week. I would kind of like a clean slate for knitting when I get back from Europe! That means I'll have plenty of needles to start with my new yarn when I come back :)
