Work-in-Progress Wednesday 73
Hi all! It's good to be back. :) I'll be doing a longer post this week in the coming days to tell you all about my trip, as well as close off the year with a look at 2011 and list my knitting resolutions for the coming year. I wanted to thank all of you for sending me warm wishes in the comments while I was away. I was able to quickly glance at some of them when we were in port, and read them when I returned. It was so nice to come back to it all.
I don't have much to show this WIPW. I'm almost finished with my holiday knitting. I know, I should be done, but I'm not. While on my trip, I knit three socks (that's not three pair, but three socks), did a hexipuff (except I didn't bind off because I didn't have stuffing) and a few rows of my sweater. Not to shabby for two weeks! Anyhow, this is what I'm working on:
I think you saw the very start of the first of these socks. I'm just about to finish the heel flap of the second one, and hope to have them finished in the next few days. I'm doing the hedgerow sock pattern from Ravelry and using Candy Skein Yummy fingering in Robin Egg Malt Ball. Fun pattern! I wasn't impressed with the way it looked at first, but love the way it looks on and finished. The interesting part of this pattern, IMO, is that the leg and in step pattern carries into the heel flap. These are the first socks that I've done that with. I'm sorry it's such a crappy picture, but before I left for my trip, I dismantled my photo setup so that the cats didn't hurt themselves/destroy anything while we were gone, and I'm using my iPhone for the picture because I haven't downloaded/plugged in the cameras from the trip yet. I wasn't sure my computer wanted to handle all of that right before bed! LOL
The pair I finished while on the trip will be shared on Friday, since I started and finished them while I was gone.
That's it for me today! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday!!!!! Be sure to come back this week, as I'll be sharing the January Candy Skein Sock Colorway of the Month on Thursday, Friday my socks that I knit on the cruise and hopefully Saturday I will be posting my New Year's post!
