WIP Wednesday

I started a couple of things on Saturday. This is the Boy’s Valentine/birthday present. Since I am probably not going to make it in time, I already spoiled the surprise. He said he wants shorter socks. Next time. Less for me to knit! Haha.

image

I started on another WWFY project. Mindless garter stitch for awhile. It goes pretty fast, too. It’s the softest yarn I’ve felt…

Still chugging along on my squares. I got sick, so I skipped a day, but hopefully I’ll catch up.

FO Friday: Velvet Stole

I need a selfie stick!  Haha…  In all honesty, I wanted the Boy to help me take pictures, but between blocking and mailing it, there wasn’t enough time to ask him.  So I did it while walking to the post office.

image

The ribbing was killer toward the end, but I persevered and it is gorgeous.  I’m contemplating another version for my mom, but definitely shorter and maybe wider.  If I drape it over my neck, the ends almost reach the floor.  I’m 5’2″, but still.  Before blocking, it only reached my knees, and I thought THAT was long!

image

The fabric is so wonderfully drapey and squishy.  It was hard to get a good picture, but I did my best.  I’m sad that it is going away, but I am happy that I’m done with it.  Fingers crossed that it gets there!

Totals are in for January!  This is for completed balls of yarn/completed projects.

image

Still working away on these squares.  Some days I have to play catch up, but I’ve been pretty consistent.

Birthday socks for Rebecca!  I actually started in the beginning of January but took a break with the shawl project.

Totals for the month so far, but I’ll probably add one more ball and some 400 yds this month.

I need to block some squares!

image

Visual progress.  I’m getting there!

I’m still working away on the shawl.  I hope I can finish it by next week.

I finished one side of the Velvet Stole.  Stinkey decided to join me to take a picture of the shawl.  =]  He’s the Boy’s cat.

I’m still trudging away with the blanket squares.  Less than 100 left for my original 300 squares though.

FO Friday: Ternion Cabled Knee-High Socks

So they didn’t end up knee-high.  That just isn’t very practical around California.  But they are still very lovely to wear.

image

I made a few mods.  They are mirror images of each other, a feat complicated by the size of my feet.

image

I also changed the cable pattern in the back to 2 braids.   They are so nice and warm. ..

I’ve been working on my WWFY piece.  It was slow going at first because I couldn’t get gauge, just like Goldilocks last time.  I don’t know what it is about swap pieces that don’t like me, but it finally decided to behave and I’m making some good progress.  I have about 8 inches left before I get some interesting cabling going on.

I promise I’ve been working on my blanket, not as much as I’d hoped, but still slowly making progress.  102 squares to go.
