It's been a while, eh, kittens? But here is it, a new WIP-it Wednesday! It's not much...
...these are in progress right now. I just cast them on last night, in fact. With very minimal effort, I'm already a red stripe farther along in the pattern. These socks are for The Boy from yarn I snagged especially for him from a DDD update. (I had mentioned the shop in my video blog when I flashed some of the yarn I've been stashing.) I've been blown away by how quickly the leg on these is going; who knew that socks for children go so fast?! The plan is that these will be almost knee-high before I turn the heel and work on the foot. With any luck I'll have a finished sock in less than 48 hours and maybe even a pair before the weekend is over? I can always dream. All of the stuff in the house that needs to be put away and all of the art & curtain rods that need to be hung may prevent this from happening. Bummer.
I had originally planned to work with this yarn during the two months we were homeless (yes, start to finish it was only a day or two shy of two full months) but I didn't have as much time or desire to knit as I had hoped. I got quite a bit done, but not as much as I thought I would. I ended up having a couple skeins too many of yarn with me, as well as my Dessert of the Month for the year-to-date from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. (At this rate, I may wait until the year is almost over and have a marathon cross-stitching week. I think they'll be adorable in my new kitchen. ) And let's not get started on how I didn't read a single book I brought along with me.
Anywho. Point is, I'm still knitting. And I'll hopefully catch up on some of the blogs I wanted to do for my 30th birthday and the Blog's 5th. The move really messed with a lot of things.
