WIP Wednesday

I really enjoyed participating in my last Work In Progress Wednesday, so I thought it would be a good plan to continue :)

My mermaid scarf has stalled dramatically *sigh* I made a mistake about 6 or 7 rows back and it has completely thrown off the pattern. Unfortunately, this pattern is also really hard to frog, especially with such slippery yarn as pure silk, so this is waiting for me to take the time (and have the patience!) to do it properly.

Here's where I am so far, about twice as long as it was last time... (I didn't take the time to get a good picture as I'm sulking with it at the moment *wry smle*)



My cotton top is making (slow) progress. I haven't given it the attention it needs, so it doesn't look like I've got much further than the last picture I posted of it. I have though. Honest ;) I've done two of the rib sections in the centre panel since then.


I'm using stitch markers to keep track of where the central ribs start, which isn't mentioned at all in the pattern but it seemed like it would be easier than having to count each time!

And finally, the reason nothing else has had much of my attention...


My second sock! I can't wait for this to be finished so that I will have my pair and can start wearing them immediately *laughs* In fact, it's a struggle not to put the other one on my foot by itself, but I'm being very restrained! I am taking it a bit easier on this sock, I made the last one so quickly that I had a sore wrist for about 4 days afterwards, so I'm pacing myself a bit more this time ;)

Anyway, that's where my current projects are; to see more WIPW posts, head over to Tami's blog :)

And stay tuned tomorrow, for I have exciting new yarn to share ;)

  3. I can definitely see how that sock would be distracting (and dangerous to your wrists!). Such fabulous colours!

    Hope you find the patience to get through the frogging :S It's so frustrating when that happens.

  4. Wow that sock is gorgeous! I get a sore wrist when I do too much knitting/crochet and then get really frustrated because I can't do anything for a few days. Good luck with the frogging.

  8. I love the sock! That would definitely make me happy :) Grr at the scarf. I made a mistake on my hitchhiker and had left it, annoying me, until I showed it to my Gran and she insisted I take it back. It WAS worth it in the end but I hate ripping!

  14. The colors and stripes of those socks are so fun. Can't blame you for wanting to knit on them exclusively. Hope you get back on track with the scarf. What a lovely pattern.

  16. Whoa, that sock is soo pretty. I love the fun colors. I will admit that I was wearing my first sock sitting on the couch since I haven't finished the mate yet. There's no shame in that! ;) Sorry to hear about the scarf mistake. I'm sure you'll fix it in no time!

  18. That really is a happy sock! The colours are like candy for my brain. :D I hope it goes super-fast so you can get wearing the pair.

    I hope you find the perfect moment for the frog-and-redo on the scarf, too.

  19. That is a really cheerful sock. I've too had projects that needed a good long time out to think about what they did. I may pull a few out at some point.
