WiP Wednesday

Well, it’s Wednesday, I’ve remembered to blog, and I have something to show you that is NOT the Wiggle Wrap!

That particular endless project was completed on Friday night and is patiently awaiting end-weaving and a bath. Which means I needed a new project.

Meet I.B. Footsie

I’ve been slacking off on my sock challenge in a pretty big way, so I figured it was time to have a sock on the needles again. It’s another pattern from my good friend Heather Zoppetti, and like Dawn Gnot, it’s part of the CSI sock project. So far, so good!

Oh, and despite the fact that I seem to have an ever-growing pile of SpaceCadet yarns, this is the first one I’ve wound and started knitting! It’s the Estelle base in Calm Before the Storm.

Apparently, my 2012 socks will primarily be from friend-written patterns in friend-dyed yarn. I think I’m OK with that.

I know of another pair of socks you could knit next if you want to stay with your theme. ;-)

I like that yarn. It looks like the sqooshy yarn that Roxanne uses. it makes really comfortable socks.

Do you like the signature needles? I have sets of sock needles and while I find them really great (and pointy!) for splitty yarns, they are a bit hard on my hands. They have no give at all. I use them once in a while but am preferring the Harmony woods at the moment.

I can see I'm going to have to write a new design just for you. No YOs. I promise.
