Work in Progress Wednesday 188

Hi everyone! I hope you're having an awesome week so far. I have two projects to share today, one being my Rondelay that I'm still working on, and the second is a toe up sock!



As mentioned, this is the Rondelay pattern. It uses one skein of yarn and I'm using my Candy Skein April '14 colorway, Atomic Jelly Beans. I'm still loving the pattern, though haven't gotten as far as I'd hoped on it. I just finished the second portion and have a third left, plus a small border. I really do love it!



My second project is a new pair of socks. This is huge for me because I've never done toe up before! I decided to pick a pretty easy but popular pattern that wasn't plain vanilla but didn't have too much going on. I'm using Candy Skein Savory fingering and knitting the Socks on a Plane pattern that's free on Ravelry. So far so good, though I did the cabling that I have so far at knitting group and kept losing track of my row count. Oops! Sorry for the blurriness of the photo  (and my hand in it) but it was the only picture that the color came through at all. Most pictures made the yarn look all blue. It will be interesting to see how I like toe up. It seems big and blocky right now. I'm doing 64 sts which is what I normally do for socks. Hmmm...

That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of your week and I'll see you Friday!

  6. That shawl looks amazing!

    I made the Socks on a Plane pattern recently too, mine was in an orange/yellow colourway so very different to your beautiful blue one. I use a safety pin through a stitch to mark which row I'm on. I'm easily distracted so having a visual reminder works well for me lol
