WIP WEDNESDAY: The Never-ending socks

WIP Wednesday (Shellyfish)

WIP Wednesday (Tamis Amis)

WIP Wednesday has arrived and I have nothing new to show for it.

There has been new WIP-page, but that is now an FO. All that I have today are those socks that I showed last week. Yes, they are still with me, despite a gargantuan amount of knitting — and they will be with me until the end of the weekend, I reckon. Thus no progress has been made on the other nominated UFO-busting projects. Never mind, their day will come — but if I put down these socks to have a rest and knit something else, I just know that they will be back into hibernation for the forseeable future, which would be a great shame as I have now reached the heel flap (courtesy of the iplayer and South Pacific – wow, what a bizarre musical!) of the second sock.

A sock and half a sock

But what am I to show you this week? The socks look little different to the way that they looked yesterday

What’s a girl to do? Put this post on hold until later today and  cast something on despite all her good intentions? Would this knitter do that?

I doubt very much that she would do…


and so she did.

Red Hot

Herbivore, by Stephen West — a stash-busting production from WOOL | gathered. Knitted in Zitron Trekking Hand Art, in Jamaika.

(Did I sneak that one in without anybody noticing? Did the validation work?)

    I love that yarn you’re using for Herbivore. It’s beautiful!

      It is certainly colourful, Tami. I hope that it works well with the pattern. I’m not far enough along to be confident yet.

    You have done well – looks like you are over the hardest part and you DESERVE to be allowed to cast on something new, lol!

      Hi, Kari. That’s what like to see, a spot of validation 🙂

    I was 100% a single project knitter until I started playing along with the WIPW business. Now, I figure I owe it to my readers to have a variety of things for them to look at when they visit. That’s how I justify it, anyway. Does that help? 🙂

      What a woman. I bow to your genius. (welcome to the blog, BTW)
