From My Project Bag

I emptied my project bag to find a set of needles and these are all the projects that are in my bag right now.  I am knitting:

The Fargo Sweater by The Fibre Co using Orgaink in Highlands.  This is a VERY yummy yarn that is amazing to knit.

Also From the Fibre Co, The Tupelo Shawl using Canopy Worsted.  Another super soft yarn from The Fibre Co. This shawl is knit using the intarsia method for the color work on the edge of the shawl.  It's a bit fussy working with the three balls of yarn, but the end result is definitely worth it.

I must be on a Fibre Co kick, because I am also knitting with Road to China Light.  I am using it to knit up the Oak Grove Mitts from Never Not Knitting.  I love this pattern with the oak leaf and this yarn is perfect for the pattern.  Growing up in Iowa, we had oak tree lined streets, so there is a little nostalgia here.

I started the Firefly Scarf in a class I taught last week.  This time I'm knitting it using Panama from Rowan.  A customer choose this yarn for the pattern and I knew I wanted to use the yarn if I ever knit it again.

My niece's birthday is coming up and I am knitting her the Liesl Kerchif, the perfect accessory for her sweet little face.  I am using Lorna's Laces Solemate.  I got this yarn at TNNA market in January to try it out.  It's made with merino, nylon, and outlast.  It's a great shawl yarn, come by the shop and give me your opinion.  Maybe you will see it on the shelves at Stash someday!

Call me crazy, but there is also two skeins of Filigran Lace weight in my bag waiting to become some kind of shawl.  I'm thinking I would like to try one from "Juju's Loops"

Now it's your turn, tell my what you have on your needles...

I've got the Brownstone by Jared Flood on my needles now. I'm using Manos Rittenhouse in Coffee and I couldn't be happier with the results so far.

I've got the short sweater "Anya" with Sublime tussah silk dk in raspberry currently on my needles. I have at least a dozen UFO's from my winter/spring knitting frenzy. I'll finish them in time for fall (I promise!) I also have 4 or 5 other projects going on other needles, of course, but I tried on a finished Anya sweater that a friend made and can't wait to finish this one! :D
