Work-In-Progress Wednesday #3

An alternative title for this post could be "Procrastiknitting". After I went through all that trouble of making my Year of Projects list yesterday, what did I cast on today?


Washcloth:
Lily Sugar 'N Cream Cotton
A washcloth! I haven't knit a washcloth in years, but I needed something portable and simple to bring to work today and none of my current WIPs fall into either of those categories, unfortunately. Are washcloths on the list? Nope! Hence, procrastiknitting.  * shakes head at silly self *


Color Affection:
The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga
At least my Color Affection shawl is progressing steadily. I estimate that I am about 70% done with the short row section. I can't wait to wear this thing! Lately I've been wearing outfits that would coordinate with it so nicely, it's such a tease.


Sasquatch socks: (formerly known as Olive Theory)
BMFA Socks that Rock Heavyweight
The sock for my next design in the series inspired by How I Met Your Mother characters (this one is Marshall's) is still pooling crazily and I decided that I love it. :) We'll see how I feel about it when I get to the foot, which will involve more patterning than the simple rib you see here. I'm excited to get the rest of the heel pattern worked out soon, too. Can you guess what it will look like?


Lillypad socks
No picture today, folks, I left the sock in the car and it's too dark out for photos now. I've turned the heel and am on the gusset of my Lillypad socks but I have alarming news: the sock might be too small for me. I know! The horror! I never try my socks on until I'm past the heel. This might sound crazy (there is a lot of sock to knit before that point, after all) but I find I don't get an accurate feel for the fit until I reach the gusset. And well, this one's feeling pretty snug... so I'll have to think about things a bit before proceeding. Sigh.

Anyway, that's all I can manage today, I've got a job application to write! Happy WIP Wednesday, all!
See everyone else's WIP Wednesdays here!

    1. The pattern is simple and coming up with color combos is really fun. You should knit one! :)

  3. I am SOOOOOO loving the Sasquatch socks (seeing that we are Sasquatch mad in this house I think I may need to get my hands on that pattern at some stage) and I love your colour affection shawl

  7. At least a washcloth is a small diversion. And a useful one! Totally justified. Did that help? Socks and shawl are lovely and I agree about the pooling. Awesome! Now about those lilypad socks... Pattern, please? Those are SO cool! Hope they fit!
