Like many other knitters in the blogosphere I have decided to do a “Work in Progress Wednesdays” post. Hopefully this will be a regular posting and I also hope it will inspire me to get these projects finished! If you want to see more posts like this then why not browse through the list on Tami’s blog.
Tonight my WIPs are socks. First of all we have my “A is for Angee” socks by Cookie A. I’m making them in a fab yarn by the Laughing Yaffle – the colours are brilliant but I don’t seem to be able to capture them well on my camera indoors – I’ll try outside on a sunny day if we get one soon. This yarn was bought for me as part of a knitting Secret Santa and I was very excited when I opened it! These are nearly finished although I do have a bit of a problem that I missed out 12 rows of the pattern on the 2nd sock. Having sought advice on the UK Sock Knitters group on Ravelry and ignoring the sensible suggestions that I just frog back and do it again I’ve decided to attempt to unravel from the beginning and knit backwards to correct the mistake near the beginning. Wish me luck.
The second pair have been on the go for quite a while. They are a p/hop pattern Hopsox and they are looking great but the cable rounds seem to take forever! The yarn is Clan by The Yarn Yard and I’m really enjoying working with it. It is 100% merino but it feels more like cotton than wool and it shows up the texture really well. I’ll get back to these as soon as I’ve finished the Angee socks.
