The WIP Post

So last time I blogged I said I'd write about my WIP's. I've some to show you and also an FO.

It seems that socks are the only thing I'm finishing regularly right now. Here's my 5th pair this year.

Pattern: Diagonal Cross Rib Socks from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Brown Sheep Wildfoote Sock, 2 skeins, color sy-27, Pine
Needles: US 1 & 2
Modifications: Went down a needle size to fit a woman's foot.

When I first started these socks in February, I made the cuff and then lost interest and set them aside. I picked them up again in April, and once I got into a rhythm with them enjoyed the pattern a lot, especially since a cable needle is not needed!

The Wildfoote Yarn is great to work with, and I love how the socks fit. Another keeper!

In the UFO pile, first up, I'm almost done with my 4th sweater for the year, Wendy Bernard's Somewhat Cowl.

I just need to pick up the neckline ribbing and finish the sleeves.

I've also been working on another pair of socks in Noro Kureyon Sock.

These are the Waffle Rib Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. I'm working on the leg of the second sock.

And, lastly, a pair of mittens that hasn't received much attention. I love how the colors are coming together, and hope to finish them by the end of the summer.

Very nice! I knit that Cross Rib pattern a couple years ago and remembered enjoying the process. I also like the Noro Kureyon socks. Let me know how they wear..I've been wanting to try that yarn.

Love the colour combo of your mitts! The corrugated rib takes an age to knit doesn't it!
