WIP'S...Works In Progress

Working on some preemie hats for a couple different KAL' is for Sweet Caroline and will be going to Michigan and another is for Remy in New York (info of these on the Wolfe Farms Ravelry group). These are getting my knitting mojo/blog mojo back....the daybreak has really wore me down.

Preemie hats are done in Sunshine Yarns Classic: yellow above is Gourd and the other is New Moon Alice. They are so fun to do...will be doing quite a few of these. They are done on size 2 circs...

The never-ending Daybreak shawl...its almost done but each row takes about 4o minutes to get through...soooooo boring; at least the yarn is awesome. I have at least 8 more rows to go but have thrown it in a bag for a bit while I make some preemie hats!

February Lady Sweater is still marinating in a bag too...

What are you working on?
