Work in Progress 167
This week I feature a new WIP. I didn't want to show you my Candy Corn socks again as I have started the second one, but it looks just like the first of course. When I get a little further I'll share it as a WIP again.
I didn't really plan to start another project, but I was catching up on the Yarniacs podcast. Gayle, one of the hosts, was talking about the Hogwarts Express shawl by Susan Ashcroft. I always tend to keep my computer or phone close when listening to their podcast because they always have great pattern suggestions. As soon as I saw this shawl, I knew I had to make it. I also knew exactly what yarn I'd make it with! I'm using Candy Skein Savory fingering in Oatmeal Cookie. I'm hoping I can crank this shawl out, because we really want to go to the unofficial Harry Potter day at Disneyland on November 3rd and I'd love to wear it. That probably won't happen, but who knows.
That's it for me today. I hope you all have a great rest of your week.
