2014 WIP Wednesday # 4

I've had a change of projects since my last post, although there are a few older snoozing WIPs still around.

One of my current active WIPS is~

The slipstream cowl MKAL in Ellyn Cooper's yarn Sonnets Hand-dyed, this is a beautiful fingering merino with a nice twist, from a local independent dyer. I've had this in my stash for quite some time and was excited to find the perfect project for it.

 The last clue for Slipstream came out yesterday, but I still have an inch or so of the last clue (three) to go. You can read about the Mystery on Inspiration Knits Blog.

I am really enjoying this mystery, I'm keeping up and the pattern really does work very well for variegated yarn, thank-you Louise! Instead of magic loop I've been using US size 2 bamboo dpns, they're 8 inches long and have a little give that I'm finding is gentle on my hands and so far no aches and pains like I had last year. This is my 2nd Inspiration Knits MKAL, the first one was the foolproof cowl that I also liked and DD#1 made one too.

I'm linking in to all the other WIP wednesday inspirational projects.... go and take a look.
