WIP Wednesday- lush update

I’ve been working surprisingly faithfully on three big WIPs this past week. Surprisingly for me anyways, as there is nothing more alluring to me than a great hat pattern. Oh-la-la I get weak in the knees. Nothing like a good hat to cure what ails you! But I have resisted, I have persevered, and I have some nice results for my efforts!

Beauty #1… The ever gorgeous Lush cardigan. She’s been on my needles since May of last year, and I have finally buckled down and put some mileage on her!
After months of black hole body stockinette…the bottom is bound off!

And hark! It’s one completed arm!

There is nothing I love more than a malabrigo rib. It’s simply glorious, yes?

I’ve got the second arm underway, and all day long to knit (other than feeding and entertaining children. But I’m damn good at playing babies and crash derby with my feet! Although my Barbie is a bit necroleptic).
Tonight is knit night, which is perfect timing since I need to treat myself to a 3.25mm needle long enough for the button bands!

Not to be outshine, My travel knit is growing at an astounding rate. Remember little revamped spruce?
well it’s come with me to hockey and ballet and on a rather long road trip this past weekend, and he’s now grown to 32″ unstretched. A whole skein! This is going to be an epic infinity cowl!
