Wednesday WIPs


Number 14 will be joined together soon. This week Arne and Carlos are here in my general vicinity teaching classes and giving lectures at a LYS but I couldn't get a spot in any of it. By the time I saw the post everything was sold out. I even got on the waiting list but....nope. I'll have to continue my fangirl journey through YouTube and working on their little Christmas sweaters. So close...but so far away, sigh. 

On a happier note, Chestnut is finally past its difficult stage. I just started the first pattern row. It's been a very long time coming.

I've got two more rows to do and BonAmie wil have completed it's first pattern cycle. Now I won't have to worry over picking colors and ripping out ones I don't like. From here on in this will be it. I'll just repeat the chart over and over until I get the length I want. 

It doesn't look like it but the Musselburgh hat got a few more inches on it when we went for our grocery pick up. There's still a long way to go. You knit the hat and lining all in one and then stuff it inside itself. 

On that grocery trip I managed to score a quart of fresh goat's milk for making soap with. I usually use the powder form but when I went to order it I almost fell off my chair from the price of it. I don't know what's going on with the goat's but I'm sure glad I don't need much of this stuff or need it very often. I am also happy to say the new lye is here so as soon as I can get The Mister to busy himself elsewhere, I'm back in business. 


  1. I've never seen goat milk for sale! Love all your projects - your colorwork is AMAZING!!! I'm still toying with the idea of knitting a Musselburgh. Everyone seems to be (and has been) on the bandwagon for this pattern. Tempting...

  2. It’s odd which products are increasing in price and which are scarce. I can’t find the small paper cups I use in the bathroom anywhere. Other brands are available, but they don’t fit my dispenser. Sorry you missed out on the class and meeting Arne and Carlos.

  3. Great post! Do you know why goat's milk powdered is so high--people who couldn't get infant formula used it instead so, of course, they had to jack the prices! Boo. Your sweaters look great!

  4. I really like all of your projects. The colorwork is so amazing. I can't even imagine. Sorry about missing out on Arne and Carlos. That's too bad when they're so close.
    Score on the goats milk! Soap will be made soon. Hurray!
