WIP Wednesday 2/16

I'm slowly making progress on my WIP list.  In fact, this week I've actually moved on to a "new" WIP.

Mom's Brea Bag is coming together nicely.  After a little discussion (and remeasuring) Mom got the lining into the bag on Saturday.

All that's left now is to get the shoulder strap finished.  Mom and I picked out a cable pattern from Super Stitches Knitting.  The cable is called "OXO" but I like to think of it as the "Hugs & Kisses" cable.  This strap will be lined on the bottom with the same fabric as the lining.  This will keep the strap from being too stretchy and distorting the cables.

I've officially moved 2 projects off the needles to the FO pile since last week - both A's Morgan and J's gloves.  So my new WIP is to finish up Finger Foods by Susan B. Anderson.

I got the yarn for these finger puppets during the Teddy Bear Picnic Swap.  Raili included everything I needed to complete all these delicious looking fruits.  I finished the green and yellow pears, as well as the apple, several months ago.  The project then got put aside for Christmas knitting.  I'm currently working on the bunch of grapes. 
There are 10 large and 6 small grapes, plus the "stem" and vine. The stem is complete, as well as 8 large grapes.  I think this will be my favorite of the bunch! :) 
It's so refreshing to share something new with you! :) 

What's on your needles this week?


  1. That lining is so snazzy!
    The grapes are so cool!
    You're doing so well w/your WIPs.
    I have my Purlie Plum/Idlewood on the needles. I'm going to cast on for a few other projects, I think, today - baby blanket, my baby's Inca Snowflake hat, and the toddler shrug.

    I saw your cast-on/beginning of the Purlie Plum on your blog last night. I love the color you chose. I think you'll love working with the Cascade 128! It's so squishy! :)

  3. that purse is going to be something else! Lucky Mom!

    I'm knitting on a shawlette this week. I hope to finish by the weekend.

    I love shawlettes - I don't knit enough of those types of things! :)

  5. Wow!! That purse looks so amazing! I love the print that your mom picked our for the lining. I am working on a pair of socks for my bestie, Lisa. I found some great bamboo yarn since she can not wear wool. I can not wait to see your grapes when they are done.
