Work-in-Progress Wednesday 66



Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a very fun time Saturday night at our tiki event, as well as Sunday at the fiber fest that my knitting group and I went to. I plan to write a long post tomorrow, along with a picture of all of us sometime this week, so check back for that! I got a few new skeins of yarn, a few project bags and beads! I can't wait to show you all.

Now to WIPW!



This is the first sock of the pair, but I'm almost finished with it. I'll definitely have it done by Friday, so will have a project for FO Friday (even though it's kind of cheating since the project is only 50% done at that point).

I just have to say, I LOVE THIS PATTERN! It is so easy, but not boring. The pattern is Hermione's Everyday Socks which is a free pattern on Ravelry. It fits great so far (as you can see in the picture) and is very comfortable. I'm using Candy Skein Yummy in Royal Rock Candy.

That's it for me this week. I've worked on my Rhombi a little, but not enough to show you. The sock has been my focus since I have so many to do for Christmas.

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!

  10. The socks are really cute. All that texture looks great in your colorway. I totally agree that one sock counts as an FO!

  15. Tami, that sock is gorgeous! I plan to make the Hermione sock in a yummy tangerine-colored yarn that I have -- I think they will be awesome to wear in February hidden underneath all my black suit pants. :)

    Can I ask a question about the heel flap? I'm knitting my first socks now and really love the slip,knit, slip, knit patterning on the flap -- it's so thick and squishy! Does the stitch pattern on the Hermione sock account for extra thickness on the heel flap? If not, have you made any modifications for it? I'd really love to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks!

  23. Ooh... I love that sock pattern! I may just have to try socks again, maybe I'll actually make two socks this time instead of just the one.

  24. Gorgeous! I've had that favourited on Rav for a while, but you're definitely making me want to cast on. Sounds like they would make idea Christmas presents!
