Yarn and Other Stuff//WIP Wednesday

It's been a while since I've done a WIP Wednesday (check out Tami's blog for more info on that); but I have a few works in progress and some yarn to share today!!!

Firstly my lovely wife treated me to some yarn from the Cucumber Patch, it's not a yarn store I've used before but their online experience was easy and the yarn came just over 24 hours later. Here are just some of the balls (most of them are doubled up on):
 I love them all, and I already have a few projects in mind - I want to try something small and lacy - I'm learning alot about knitting in January.

So my first WIP is a scarf; I had to frog this project during the week but I'm much happier with it now and I'm using 2 different yarns to complete it - this one isn't for me but I want to get it finished by the weekend - who knows it might make an appearance on FO Friday in the next few weeks:
 The other project I have on my needles are some mitts (the pattern on Ravelry), they are very pretty and have some faux cabling up the side. I've finished the first one and I'm not far from finishing the 2nd one!!!!
I have to say I'm feeling very productive in my knitting so far this year - I have a finished object to share with you this Friday and I'm going to a knitting group tomorrow night, so hopefully that will go well. I'll be back tomorrow to share some diabetic cupcakes with you.

PS - if you're on Ravelry, add me - I'm KnittingV
