So. In the absence of WIP photos of my new Rockin' Sock Club socks (not a great loss, as I have only done half of the first toe, thanks to this), I give you this: my current WIP project stats. I hadn't taken/uploaded any recent WIP photos in a while, so I decided to get caught up on this.
Fuchsia Lace Scarf
I love this pattern. Very satisfying to knit, and totally do-able lace because it's such a narrow scarf, so it doesn't require a lot of brainpower for long periods of time. I totally love the slightly scalloped edging you do as you go along. Here's the scarf's status at the moment:
Just a note, for this and my other WIPs, there are links to patterns etc. on my sidebar under "On The Needles."
I found this pattern on the KnittyBlog, but for some reason, the link to it is no longer on her sidebar. I am sure if you wanted it, one could email her for the pattern. It's another fun one, fairly brainless (in a good way!) and easy to work on.
I am quite entertained by how the blue is doing its striping thing. It has been zig-zagging back and forth across the scarf in what has turned out to be a very predictable manner the whole way. At first I wasn't so sure I liked it, but it has grown on me and I think it's kind of fun.
This yarn is KnitPicks Dancing, and it has some elastic in it. I like the way this sock fits. The color did some pooling, but that isn't something that bothers me. Nor do I need to have my handknit socks match exactly; for me, that's a part of the charm of them.
This is the start of a sock in Trekking XXL. I had started this sock, did the leg, heel and most of the foot when I decided it just wasn't going to fit. I was using smaller needles to make this a tighter knit and my usual number of cast on stitches wasn't going to work. (what's that? swatch, you say?) Anyway, I frogged that, and started over with more stitches. However, this is currently on some temporary needles as I have borrowed these 0's for my Rockin' Socks.
Hopefully tonight I will get some more knitting done on my new socks, and also some photos.
