Work-in-Progress Wednesday 41
Happy Wednesday! It's cold and rainy in Southern California, but that's okay for me, as I'm heading to Palm Springs this weekend. This cool weather will make the hot desert bearable, which is a nice surprise!
Since we're going to the desert and I just got a haircut (a severe haircut, chopping off about an average of 6 inches), I thought I would make the hair kerchief that someone had in last week's WIPW (sorry, I don't remember who at the moment!). I just bought two new bathing suits for the trip that have teals and blues/purples, so when I found this cotton in my stash, I knew it would be perfect for it. So far I like the way the yarn is pooling, except for the large white spot in the middle.
I haven't had too much time to work on my sock, but I finished the ribbing and am working on the heel flap. I decided to do the partridge eye version (I think that's what it's called), since I did the standard heel flap on my other sock.
For those that are new to WIPW, to share your WIPW post with us, just fill out the Mr. Linky below. Despite it saying you must comment, don't feel as if you do. That is something Mr. Linky automatically adds. I just ask you to check out a few of the links posted to see what everyone else is working on and comment there if you can. Everyone loves feedback and a little encouragement on their projects! Also, please link back to this post in your post to get the word out! The more the merrier!
Please remember to use the new link to your post from this week, overriding the one that Mr. Linky saves from the previous. Thanks!
