new yarn for more new projects

I’ve got so many WIPs right now!  There’s the little diamonds afghan, the kitty ripple and the Hermione hat, and the socks (which I have not touched at all).  Even so, I’m starting more projects.  Mom liked my wrap so I told her I’d make her one, too, and the yarn just came in!  She wanted an off-white, creamy color, so I got more KnitPicks Palette Yarn in Oyster Heather and Cream colors, which are so similar you can barely tell the difference in my pictures:

Again, the pattern for this is here if you want to check it out.

My second new project is a knitted Weasley sweater from “Harry Potter.”  It’s my first time knitting a sweater so I hope it goes alright.  I got some Universal Yarn: Classic Worsted in Night and Primrose shades (the Primrose is for the giant H that goes on the front — H for Hannah).  I know it’s nerdy and I know it’s knitting, but I can’t help but give it a shot, it makes me so happy.  Here’s what I’ve got so far:

The bottom edge is supposed to curl.  Measuring from the curl up I’ve got 8 inches so far (done in 3 days), which is good progress, I think.

The yarn is an acrylic/wool combo, so it’s soft but should be warm, and should keep shape pretty well.  It was also pretty cheap, at $5.50 a skein, so since I’ll need about 10 skeins (according to the yardage required by the pattern), I’m glad I found this yarn at the local yarn shop.

Hopefully next time I’ll have more progress on crocheted items, and I’ll try to keep my Weasley sweater posts to a minimum since it is knitting. See you next time!
