WIP Wednesday (4)

Thanks to Tami's Amis for hosting WIP Wednesdays

Let's see what's hot on our needles this week =)


Not much progress on this one. Last week my needle broke and I didn't have another 3mm handy so I had to order one and it arrived today. Meh. So the Daybreak lay around most of the time. I got some more stripes done. But that gave me time to finally finish my cardi. YAY

I started this one after I finished the cardi. I needed something fast and wearable for next weeks convention. I love the color and well it's sooo summery. *g* I got the yarn at a supermarket sale. 4 skeins 100% cotton for like 3€ so it is also a really cheap project, too. It's my second Ribbed Lace Bolero and I really love it.

I've been knitting a lot of Shawls this year and Susi knitting her cardigan made me realize I needed to knit something more than just a shawl. I planned on knitting a Juliet cardigan for the convention so here I am halfway there. My only concern is that I think it'll be too large. Well maybe not too large but it should have a 5" of negative ease and it shouldn't close in the front (that's how I liked it) and mine already closes in the front. That + blocking I think it'll be too large to please me. *shrug* First pic is on my mom (and yes we cheated coz it's actually way too large for her). Second pic is on me. It's knitting up very fast, I started on Saturday and by Sunday I was already starting the lace. BTW my mom wants one too so I'll make her one in her size but maybe I'll knit the yoke in stockinette instead of Garter. I find garter to look messy. Wish me luck I need to finish it before next week.

That's where we stand this week =)

I am looking forward to seeing you with the finished product :)
Question ladies, when will you be arriving in Berlin? And where are you staying? auriansbooks at gmail dot com

Hey Aurian! I'm not sure when Susi and her Bf will arrive on Thursday but they will come get me at the Airport on Thursday night.
I completely forgot where we're staying so I'll leave Susi to answer that LOL
When are you arriving again? and you going to the Ibis hotel no?

Aurian said...

We'll be arriving wednesday, so we will have thursday and friday to discover Berlin. And yes, Ibis hotel Spandau, very close to the convention address.

pattepoilue said...

Ah yes! Well we're a bit farther away from the convention center but not so much. it's still very reasonable.

I'm working on Thursday morning otherwise I'd have come earlier =P Still that leaves all Friday to visit *g*
Will ask Susi about our hotel!
I'm sooooooo excited. I hope it won't rain though LOL
