Work In Progress Wednesday!
Socks, the ones I was working on last month before I knitted the baby sweater ... from "Socks a la Carte, Toes Up." I am in a class this week for work, and the instructor is okay with me knitting during the class. He even asked if I was knitting his name into the sock ... LOL! I love literary references, especially when they're knitting-literary references!
These are coming right along. It's a seed stitch, and a simple lace panel.
The yarn is from KnitPicks. It's sort of a cross between pooling and striping, isn't it? I really like it, but the colors aren't coming through here. There's a lot of pink in it, which you can see on the foot.
And speaking of giveaways ... I won a paper-bead kit from fiberdance. It came in the mail today:
I'm really looking forward to this! I love trying new crafts. Thanks!
That about wraps this up ... I started another blog, so I'm off to go update that one. Last week I decided to take the couch-to-5k challenge. Since blogging about my knitting and spinning motivated me to knit and spin more complex items, and to suffer fewer UFOs, I think blogging my 5K challenge will keep me on track. At least, I hope so! Can't knit and jog, unfortunately :)
