Yarn Along and WIPing Wednesday

Yesterday I read, no crafting....I had seen a book in a friend's picture on Facebook, it intrigued me, as it was called WOOL ..well that looked interesting!  And it was, although it's not about wool from any animals (although one character does knit).  It's a post-apocalyptic book....love these kinds of books!  Anyway I purchased it and downloaded it..and the Hubs read it..and said it was fantastic..and I'd really like it...and then my July hit!  The third book comes out on Saturday, so started it yesterday...so far..so good...

As for the crafting....after finishing the Cedar Leaf Shawlette...I decided to start another "shawl" from my queue....I've queue'd quite a few....but I had bought Madelintosh Light in Steam Age, specifically for The Age of Brass and Steam (how could I not?)...I'm loving it!

Then a hat for donation to school...

Then a hat (same as last week) for a Nerd Wars challenge, in Nerd Girls Trifecta...

Then my Spring Buds hat...it is made with CEY Firefly, which is rayon and linen...it will be very drapy..maybe not the best for the hat to show off the buds, but I will like the slouch!

The projects:

So I'm all about the hats and shawls this week....but do need to get back to the socks....they keep yelling at me from their respective bags...I've got 4 in process and another pair that needs some adjustments....and I just joined SuperSockScareFest

Can't wait to see your finished objects. The sock picture makes me laugh. I would be stressed to have that many socks going at once. Not a problem with shawls or sweaters, but socks stress me out.

Thanks, but those are the projects, not the socks....

I tried Age of Brass and Steam a while back as my first shawl project and have to admit failing miserably. Might be time to go back and try again. Love that you have so many projects on the go!
