Works In Progress: Snowy Thursday

Yeah, so it's been snowing. Like pretty much everyday here. We got 12 inches, no big deal.

I don't know if it's because I went back to class for the semester, but I've been casting on for everything I've wanted to make in a long time, which I think is a good thing. I've kept it under control, I only have four WIPs.

First off, the one closest to completion:

This is an Ice Queen for my Dad's coworker in China. He's leaving in February sometime, and I think his plan is to mail it to her. I think I have a couple more repeats to do on this and it'll be done. The yarn as been in the stash for about three years now! So I'm glad to have something to do with it!

Second closest:

Mike's Spy socks! I finished the first last week, and I'm working on the second. It's good plain class knitting but it's been recently losing out to other things...

This is a Bitterroot Shawl (Knitty!) that I've had plans for a long time. I didn't want to make socks out of this yarn (MadTosh Sock Weight!!!), because it's 100% wool, and I thought a shawl would be nice. Not only is this yarn soft and squishy, it's color makes me want to swoon! I'm sure you can see why it's been wining the WIP battle!

Finally. My owls sweater. I finished the body I believe on Monday. I've been going to school and doing readings, painting, etc so I haven't had the time (=energy) to cast on for the sleeves. I want to do them 2 at once, too, to make it more complicated.

Hopefully I'll have an FO post soon for one of these WIPs!!!
