Double WIP'd

Doesn't look like much, but it's twice what it was a couple of days ago.

Playing with the Over app is a lot quicker than knitting.

Weather has taken a turn for the cooler so it's time to get going on this cozy, relaxed sweater. Caissa, a knitspot design. Haven't had much time to work on my various projects this week, but hope to get some traction on this one because I really want to be wearing it.

Thank you for not asking about the stranded mittens. Maybe not the best choice for learning the technique. Right now I'm baffled by options for holding the two colors of yarn. Way too many videos and tutorials out there:) From what I've tried, it's like the old game of trying to pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time.

To see lots better progress, visit Tami's Amis WIP Wednesday and click through to participants blogs. You'll be impressed.


  1. Gorgeous green for your Caissa! And the little ship is cute too :) I can't offer any advice about stranding - I'm pretty sure I'm not doing it the most efficient way, but it gets done!

    1. Thanks--the yarn is like velvet--once the sweater is finished I won't take it off until next spring.

      As for stranding--at this point I would be ecstatic with inefficient:) I'll give it another go this weekend.
