Wednesday WIP - Manic Deadline Knitting

The last few weeks have been dominated by deadline knitting. As soon as I'd finished my 5 day sweater last week, I was back to knitting on another deadline garment I'd already started. I was expecting to finish it fairly quickly but I ended up ripping back and re-knitting the entire yoke. At the moment I'm working on the button band. So just weaving in ends and blocking left.

My deadline garment was a bit big to take out and about with me this weekend so I took my Mudpunch sock to church on Sunday and during church, I got as far as the start of the 20 rounds of rib at the top of the sock. I've only got a couple of rounds left so will do that this afternoon after I've finished the deadline garment.

We went to Lanhydrock House (a local National Trust property) on Sunday afternoon and I brought my other sock in progress to work on. Only managed a few rounds while Simon and Em looked around the secondhand book shop. I will be taking this socks with me on our trip to Cumbria next week to finish. 

In the last week, I've taken the odd evening off from deadline knitting to work on my hap design. I'm on the lace now and I'm loving it. I've got about 30g of yarn left to knit up so I may be able to finish this before we leave for Cumbria. I've got plans for something else I'd like to cast on for our Cumbria trip.

Lately I've been seeing lots of photos of the new WYS Cocktails sock yarn on social media so last week when I saw them at Spin A Yarn, I got two colours. I also picked up the new issue of Interweave Knits.

What's on your needles at the moment? Share in the comments. 

I've got three patterns due to be published. Two will definitely be published before we leave for Woolfest next Wednesday. I may leave one till we get back, although I will have patterns for all three at the show.

Here's a sneak peak of one of them:
