Work-in-Progress Wednesday 55
Hi all! I hope you're having a great week so far. Mine has been a hectic one, but I think all is settling down for now and things worked out for the best! YAY! We had a great time this past weekend, as I mentioned in my post Monday. It's always sad to see an event pass you look forward to for a lot of the year. I guess we'll always have next year's Tiki Oasis.
I'm watching my nieces again, but will still try and make it to as many WIPWs as possible. I don't have a ton to share, but I got a little knitting done since last Wednesday.
I took the yarn to start my husband's second sock this weekend and got a bit of the ribbing done but not as much as I was hoping for. It got dark a lot earlier than I was thinking, so I only have a little time Friday night and Saturday evening to work on it before I just couldn't see what I was doing anymore. I have about 10 more rows of the ribbing, then a few stockinette before I start the heel flap. I hope to have the second sock done soon, but I don't want to put pressure on myself to finish since I really don't have any kind of deadline. The yarn is Knit Picks Imagination in Frog Prince.
Now the shawl. As you may have remembered, I started the Dane pattern for the Candy Skein KAL, but frogged it. I'm now working on Little Shells which is going great after some quick help from my knitting group. I finished the stockinette and first lace repeat, and am about to go up a needle size, as I forgot to when I started the lace. For lace section 2, I'm going up one, and then for lace section 3, I'll go up one more. I was originally supposed to go up 2 to start the lace but totally forgot. My friend from my knitting group thought going up gradually would be best at this point. I'm loving the pattern, especially now that I have stitch markers for every 7 rows to see where I'm at in the pattern. It's a pretty easy pattern to memorize which is the kind I LOVE. Again, I'm using Delicious fingering in Blueberry Sorbet. I must say, not to pimp my own product, but this has to be the best yarn I've ever used. Just the yarn alone makes me want to work on the project more and more. Unfortunately, I only got 3 1/2-4 hours of sleep last night, so I didn't want to work on it today as I was afraid being so tired would screw me up!
That's it for me and this WIPW. What are you working on?
