In order of casting on...
First a surprise for my husband. He's been SO good with enabling my yarn addiction (hmmm... ;) ), so I figured I'd knit him something in return. He's not really a knitwear person though, so I had to think up something good. The result was these socks... now, I can only show you the back since I don't want to risk spoiling the surprise should he come across this post, so while this may look like a straight-forward, plain-vanilla stockinette sock, from the yarn ends coming out from the top, you can see that something else is going on on the other side... ;)
My second knit is a test-knit that I just knew I had to sign up for the minute I saw it - a musical score in double knitting. Granted, I've never tried double knitting before, but I wasn't going to let a tiny thing like that stop me! ;) It's so much fun seeing the patterns emerge!
Finally, my last WIP is always my very first internationally comissioned piece! And it came at a perfect time. DH and I were going on a road-trip last Sunday, and I needed an appropriate WIP to take with me. The socks were no good obviously, as that would definitely spoil the surprise, and the double knitting was just too cumbersome to bring along. But these adorable Llama Mittens fit the bill perfectly, and I pretty much finished the first one while on the road!
So that's my projects for the week. As usual I'm linking up with Tami's Amis.
