Work-in-Progress Wednesday 75
Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a good time in Los Angeles, despite the Kings totally playing like crap. I also found a few awesome treasures, 3 vintage cardigans, at my favorite vintage shop. It's this great little place that has clothes, accessories and even weird knickknacks. It's totally amazing every time we make it there.
Enough about my weekend, onto WIPW:
This is the same sock I showed last WIPW unfortunately. I haven't had much time to work on it, and to be honest, I just wasn't feeling it at knit night on Monday. As you can see, the brown is swirling around the leg and I'm just starting the heel flap. I better get trucking on this though, as I have to finish this pair before February 1, as we start a new pattern then.
Instead of working on the sock on Monday, or in the past few days, I did a few more rows of my Rhombi cardigan. It's ALMOST long enough to do the edging and cast off the body. I didn't bother taking a picture, since it looks the same, just with more stockinette/body.
I've also made a few more hexipuffs, now that I'm finished with my Christmas knitting. I love how quick I can finish one, as I'm usually a slow knitter. Funny enough, I made three before the holidays, and they're a little small. I think they were about 2.5" point to point. My new ones are bigger, but I haven't had a chance to measure. I used the same yarn (different colorways) and same needles. I'm guessing I was just a little more stressed or trying too hard on my first few, so I knit tighter. Anyway, I'll be sharing them on Friday for FO Friday. :)
Speaking of hexipuffs, I'll be posting a NEW Candy Skein Yummy mini set on Thursday afternoon/evening. If you like blues and teals, you have to make sure to come back and check them out. They'll be on sale starting as soon as I post them. As the other set sold out pretty quickly, I'm guessing this one will as well.
That's it for me today! Have a great Wednesday!
