Distracted Progress

Last night I got online and saw some most exciting news.  Tulle skirts are in this season!  Clearly someone heard me say I want to dress like a four year old.  You know what this means for fall?  Capes!  Ok, maybe not, but don't rain on my parade.  I saw a lot of tulle and cape outfits at the theater last weekend.

But I'll come back from my crazy fashion spiral to tell you about what I've actually been working on (but I do have plans and yarn for a white cape.  Stay tuned).  I finally cast on for a project I've been talking about for months -- the Christmas stockings.  I purchased this ebook on Ravelry because it is full of charts but they all follow a theme.  The patterns are written for sport weight but I am knitting mine in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, which is a worsted weight wool.  This first one is a dark blue and will eventually have white snowflakes as the motif.

As always, I'm sorry for the bad quality photo. I know you are shocked to hear that it's raining again.

So far I just have a toe, but that would be because I am still distracted by this.

Yes, Twigs and Willows is moving forward.  I actually switched to a larger work bag so that I can take these sleeves with me.  It has been so cold and there is talk of *gasp* snow in the forecast again, so I'm hoping that if I keep at it I may get a chance to enjoy it before the season changes for good.

To check out more works in progress, head over to Tami's Amis!


  1. I join you in tulle love!

  2. Dressing like a four year old, huh? I guess I shouldn't say anything because I'm still living in sweats as if I were still in University :)

    I love dark blue with white for snowflake motifs! Hope it works out beautifully!

  3. I love knit Christmas stockings. I look forward to seeing yours.

  4. Amazing projects! Can't wait to see them finished.
