WiP Wednesday: Snails Edition

Why snails? Because these projects have been moving slower than snails.

Yeah, the sick had something to do with that, but still.

First, the side-to-side vest. I seamed the shoulders just hours before The Sick and haven’t touched it since. It needs to have the shoulders picked up and knit, as well as the neckband. And yeah, it’s going to need a good blocking when it’s done.

I didn't take time to straighten it out right for it's photo shoot. I got distracted by the cute puppy next door and therefore was running late to get out of the house and on the road.

Oh, and I found good buttons at Bloomin’ Just forgot to photograph them.

In other news …

Here is my Cables & Corrugation sock. It’s still smarter than me. Damnit. I’m faking the slipped stitches on the heel. I can’t figure out how they got “off” but I’m not going to worry about it. It’s not worth it.

Oh, and I was supposed to rotate the toe 90 degrees, but I didn't read that part of the instructions. Oops.

I attended the Fifth Wednesday festivities tonight because my softball dinner got cancelled. No worries. I’ll see everyone tomorrow at the game.

So that’s about it from here. I cant’ believe how crazy busy I’ve gotten all of a sudden. I’ll be running around with the softball groups all day tomorrow, then BAM it’s Friday and I need to get my act together for MDS&W. Can’t believe it’s almost here!

The vest is so close to the finish line - yay! And I love that sock pattern. Really pretty.

I can't wait to meet you at MDS&W!!!

I know you weren't wild about the colorway of the yarn when you got it, but I love how it's knitting up in the sock!

I am really likin' how that vest is turning out. Love the subtle color variations.
And that is one neat sock pattern. Very cool.

OMGosh! That vest is da bomb, Baby! Love the vertical stripes. Love the sock too but looks a bit beyond me. My socks are more of the mindless plain variety.
