WiP Wednesday

Yeah, I’m late once again. The Hubster has been home sick for two days and my schedule is totally shot to pieces. Sorry. So there’s been sock knitting.


What? That’s less of a sock than you saw last week? Oh, well I finished the first one!

Love the first sock. Looking forward to having a pair. So last Friday, I reached my breaking point. I couldn’t stand having my loom completely empty. So I did something about it.


This will be a twill sampler table runner that is a LONG overdue gift for a friend. And it isn’t warped yet, but the process has started, so YAY! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m having a massive allergy attack AND I have a ginormous book I’m working on reading. It’s time to turn a few pages then try to sleep my sinuses clear. (yeah, I know. It’s a pipe dream.)

WiP Wednesday

It’s been a busy week, but I’ve scratched out some knitting time here and there. The I.B. Footsie socks are getting faster, which is awesome. I’m enjoying both the pattern and my Signature DPNs!


More writing on the horizon, and I’m plotting my next sweater. Might be another Swirl, might be a regular ‘ol cardigan. We shall see.

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.
