Cooking WIPs Contest!

I don't think I mentioned it, but I'm leaving for maine on thursday. I won't be back until Saturday night, and there won't be much internet inbetween. (Dial up, but man, it's damn slow.)

So, I've got some WIPs.

That Printed Silk Cardigan that I JUST picked up again, and am now loving. I've got up to the bust increases on the whole body, and one sleeve done.


Then there's little Millie. I started some Millicent knee socks from Cookie A. frogge d the 15" calf, and cast on for the 13". Here's before frogging.


Now, I just finished the ribbing on the right sized one.

And then we have the mitten.


As of now, it's blocking and has a thumb, and a longer hand. I'm happy with the fit, and when I start knitting the next, I plan on beginning to write up the pattern. ETA: I choose a striped thumb for those wondering, I like how it echoed the ribbing!

Finally, there's Seascape. I started this about a week ago, with some lovely silk lacweight, and I'm about 1/4 the way through the second chart for the first time.


So which one do you think I'll finish this vacation? Whoever guesses right, I plan on looking for something cool to send them, and possibly knitting related in the tag sales/used book store in maine. (Last year, I got a couple Retro knitting magazines and books) Remember, I'm leaving Thursday, there's a 9 hour drive up and then again back, and we don't do much in Maine. Mostly, we just sit there! And by the way, I'll count one finished Millie as an FO. If nothing is finished, I'll pull a name out of a hat! One guess please!
