WIP Wednesday - Week 22

StashDash2018 (a podcast knitting race) started this past Friday so as usual I'm finishing All The Things! (Capitalized, so it's true now). The previous years I've signed up for the 5K event, but I'm thinking I might only do the 3K this year - we'll see.

First finished item - the wingspan made out of my Christmas yarn. It's ridiculously colourful and I love it! Don't know how much I'll actually wear it, but I had fun knitting it, and that's the important thing.

Second finished item - a pair of socks for a colleague of mine. They're nothing special, but just a simple spiral around. I finally got to give them to her yesterday and I think she liked them 🙂 Of course, it is waaaaay too hot to wear them now, but they'll keep.

Third finished item - the forest wreath cowl. My first real attempt at two-colour brioche. I like the way it looks, but am not a huge fan of the actual knitting part of brioche knitting (which is also why I stopped after just two repeats instead of the 3 the pattern suggested), so I'll probably never knit any of the larger items.

I loved the yarn I used for the forest wreath though, and as I still had quite a bit left, I decided to use that for the Summa Shawl. I cast on Sunday and have pretty much been knitting exclusively on that ever since. It's flying off the needles, and I absolutely love how it's turning out. I fully expect to finish within a few days :D
