WIP Wednesday! Today’s WIP are my Diamond and Cable Socks by Wendy Johnson. At the beginning of August I kept having trouble with any of the 2-at-a-time socks I’d started. After three tries I decided to do a new pair, for me this time, and have them as a travel knit. Most of the time my socks are done 2aat but I think 1aat socks are perfect for traveling.
With 2 at a time, there is the slight worry about yarns tangling and such things. HPKCHC’s term starts up again on Thursday and it’d be great to only have one more sock to do to complete the pair.
Yesterday I was able to complete the heel, which is great. If there’s any part of the sock that I don’t like doing on the go, its the heel. For not being hard, the heel is the most complex part of a sock. Because it is back and forth on one needle, if it ever came out when I was not somewhere I could easily grab all the stitches, I’d be in trouble. Now that the heel is done, I can work on the leg and then ribbing of the cuff. Perhaps I can even finish the current sock today.
Originally, my brother was going to get socks for Yule. Then when we were in Hobby Lobby, he found bamboo yarn. So he wanted a scarf made from it. I told him it was one or the other, not both. He still wanted the scarf. I finally ended up starting it in July and tonight it is finished!
Pattern: One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn: Hobby Lobby Bamboospun (77% Bamboo, 23% Nylon)
Notes: The scarf is 56″ long, 5″ wide.
I’m trying to get as close to 1 active WIP before September. I have 4 WIPs currently. Time for me to get back to work! I’ll see you next week.
Hallo and welcome to my knitting blog. Knitting has become a part of my life enough to where I need it as much as I need to breathe. I’m always working on at least one project. There will be a tentative list of Finished Objects in my sidebar but the WIPs will be changing too much to keep an active list.
Every week I will be posting a meme twice a week or more if I come up with one. WIP Wednesdays and FO Fridays. I first heard of WIP Wednesdays in a group I’m part of on Raverly and transferred it over to my old knitting blog. I’m continuing it because I love the idea. I also heard of FO Fridays today and love the idea of it as well.
WIP Wednesday: Weekly post of a current Work In Progress.
FO Friday: Weekly post of a Finished Object.
I’d love to have something to post on Mondays as well, but at the moment I can’t think of anything unless I posted a weekly to do list. Which I could but it isn’t as fun.
