WIP Wednesday (on, uh, Thursday)

Hello, sweet friends!

This is my first Work In Progress Wednesday post (just a little fashionably late. ahem.), and I hope to make it a ritual. (On time, of course.)

On the needles this week:

A shawl for me!

It's the Aestlight Shawl by Gudrun Johnston, and I'm making it with Malabrigo sock yarn. It's been in my queue forever, and I'm excited to finally be working on it.

Also, I'm working on a jacket for my sweet littlest, but alas, blogger won't let my upload the photo of it. Nor will blogger let me upload any of my Mother's-Day-stash photos, so those too will have to wait for another day.

But, because I feel sort of sad leaving you with just one project photo, here are some gnomes the husband and the older lads made on Sunday (while I was out being a yarn floozy).

So cute, right? I just bought The Gnome Craft Book, and am kind of freaking out about it. So many good projects in there. I foresee gnomes overtaking our home in the very near future.

We have been enjoying oodles of warm weather (finally), and lots of time outdoors. I hope you are as lucky!

Toodles for now, lovelies!
