WiP Wednesday

There has been some knitting going on around here, and it’s Wednesday, so you get a look!

The Hubster left town last week for football, so of course I had some knitters over. I needed some hostess-friendly knitting, so I busted out the Shokay I got on sale a few months ago and got started on my Koolhaas hat.

Getting through the cast-on and ribbing was no problem at all, but I managed to mess up the first round of the pattern. However, nobody but me is ever going to know or notice, so screw it. It’s staying.

In other news, I have several enabling friends who pushed me into doing the “12 in 2012” sock-knitting challenge. I cast on my friend digitalnabi’s Dawn Gnot socks in yarn dyed by my friend Sairy on Sunday. The first full day of knitting was a little rocky, but it’s going like gangbusters now. Much fun!

Sadly, the crafting news is not all wonderful and happy. Marianne’s socks boomeranged on me. I haven’t gotten detailed information, but I’m betting the cuffs are too tight. I’ll confirm before I rip and re-knit the cuffs (yay toe up!) on a far larger needle. Here’s hoping it’s a pretty quick process.

Is that a pattern row counter on your Koolhaas? I'm intrigued...

Also, those socks are GORGEOUS!

The socks are beautiful. I love the color and cables are always fun to look at. I gave my daughter a Sock of the Month club certificate for Christmas so I'll be making 12 in 12. It was an impulsive gift and I hope I'm not sorry....
