WIP Wednesday: A Little Bit of Everything!

This week I'm linking up with WIPW at Tami's Amis and the Yarn-Along with Ginny @ Small Things.

I have 4 main things that I am working on this week:
April 18, 2012

Way in the back, my wedding present ripple is progressing nicely, as I am able to get about one section (5 rows, give or take) done every 2 hours or so. By E's estimation, it should take me about 36 hours to complete, if I was going to sit down and just go. But I usually don't do that... This is one of my at home only projects, because it's gotten too big to take to work or school.

Next after that is my Angel scarf. You can't really see the detail in it, and I'm hoping that blocking fixes that problem. If not, I need to find a pattern that will work with this yarn. (This is the second project that I've started with this yarn. I think it wants to be something lacy)

The green & blue at the bottom is another ripple. My original plan was a baby blanket, but I dyed an entire sweater worth of yarn for it, so it might be a lap-ghan. (Because I need more blankets). It's a nice bulky yarn, 50/50 wool/acrylic blend, so it was dyeable, but also washable. And it works up fairly fast. It's just been put on the back-burner, because the wedding ripple is more important.

Finally is my Berry Citron, the never-ending lace weight shawl. I'm on section 4, which means over 200 stitches. So long rows and tiny stitches. BUT! It is my current travel project, because it still fits in my 'purse'.

I'm reading My Men are My Heroes, about the battle of Fallujah. Borrowed from E when he deployed, and I still haven't finished it. He says its the only one of his books that I borrowed that has a happy ending. So my goal is to finish this one, and return all 3 of the books that are his, because they look out of place on my shelves. (I know, sounds silly, but he wants them back anyway)

That's all for today! Head over to Tami's and Ginny's to check out what everyone else is doing this week!
