I haven't done a WIP Wednesday in ages, and this will probably be a one-off to get you caught up on my current WIPs.
First, my knitting productivity has taken a nose-dive recently. Not surprisingly this has coincided with the arrival of Jack, my kitten. He is doing as well with my knitting as can be expected from a 3-month-old kitten, but he would rather I be playing or snuggling, rather than playing with pointy sticks that he's not allowed to play with as well.
However, I have some pressing (and long past) knitting deadlines I need to meet.
The big project is the Christmas Stockings I'm making for Carla and Jim (my sister and brother-in-law). I finally have the yarn and the right size so I'm making swift headway. However that I'm only on the first cuff of the first (of three) stockings. This one has a firm deadline of December 24th, as Carla and Jim plan on filling these stocking for each other on Christmas Eve.
Another deadline I've missed by a long shot are the birthday socks for my mom. Her birthday was back in October (the weekend after the wedding that was also Thanksgiving) and so I would like to have these done before year-end. Also because I have to make Jim's birthday socks by the end of January.
The final project I'm actively working on right now is a design I've been working on. This is a quick-ish bulky blanket knit in KnitPicks Billow, which is an incredible thick/thin cotton that has a great feel and is totally fun to knit with.
I should probably get back to knitting, as I have miles to go before I sleep on all my projects!
