YOP: Week 8

This week I "finished" two things....the first is a cowl, Ladder Up, I decided I needed on Wednesday night.  I made it with some beautiful Misti Alpaca Chunky...I had three skeins and have been saving it for awhile....I love this cowl, although it is slightly big and I need to use a shawl pin with it, if I don't wrap it twice...So the picture for that will be in my Friday post, as I did not take a picture of it when I wore it..

I also today finished my first Business Casual sock!!!  And I cast on for sock 2...but the rest of the evening I must do school stuff....

I also did two more repeats of my H's Everyday Socks....those will be the ones I focus on when the So Cazh are done.... 

So not too much done...I'm also struggling with what I show here, as opposed to Wednesday and Friday posts.....and now I have the Monday posts for the Business Casual KAL...

It's hard isn't it to keep the blog posts fresh each time? I can't knit nearly fast enough to show something new each day! And I'm not comfortable with that many WIPs to establish a wide enough rotation, LOL!

Can't wait to see the cowl on Friday - Misti Alpaca Chunky sounds wonderful!

Looking forward to seeing your cowl and I to am finding it hard to keep things fresh, some weeks I feel like I'm repeating what I've just said, I'm most likely going to put a rotation into place so there is a change about on projects so this should spice the updates up a bit.
