Project Progress: What I'm Knitting Right Now

Good morning! I thought I might show you what's on my needles right now.

After finishing my Doctor Who shawl, I decided to dig in my planned projects bag.  I pulled out my Zitron Filigran yarn to be used with The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief pattern.  I had been wanting to make it ever since I saw it at The Grove during my internship.  As the pattern calls for DK weight, and Filigran is fingering to lace weight yarn, I'm going to have to add a lot more repeats to get it to the size I want.  Honestly, it's going pretty quick for being such a small gauge of yarn.  Also, the colorway is perfect for me.  Of course, it's called Ocean, and it keeps me pretty engaged, wondering when the next color will show up!

Also on my needles is something I picked back up.  I had an itch to work with Ewe Ewe's Wooly Worsted again.  I remembered that my friend Amanda had asked me to make a Puzzle Pieces changing mat for her future children.  I had kind of set it aside for a while to focus on other things, since she doesn't plan on having kids right this second.  But I needed something with instant gratification yesterday.  I can make each piece in about 30 minutes.  I probably made about 6 or 7 yesterday alone.

So, that's what I've been working on this week.  I need to do a little more work on my felted deer, which is sitting neglected in the corner by the kitchen table.  Whoops.

See you tomorrow!
