Work In Progress Wednesday Number 13

Number 13 huh? Unlucky for some, but I'm not superstitious and I have some progress, so maybe not so unlucky *laughs*


The only project I've been working on this week is the blanket. I've really felt like knitting something so simple and mindless lately, so I decided to just go with it ;) I've done 2 and a half more sections since last week, and I'm still loving it.



I have also been using it to practice knitting by feel alone, as it is just garter stitch, and I can now knit it without looking. I'm quite pleased with this

Head over to Tami's for more links, plus it's her 52nd WIP Wednesday so go say congrats ;)

  7. Good work on modifying the sock. But what does it say about me if your "gibberish" makes perfect sense to me?

  8. YAY on the heel - don't you just love socks?! The blanket is coming along great too! Now you can really watch TV while you knit - sometimes mindless knitting is the best thing in the world...

  11. When I first started knitting again, I made a log cabin blanket and my niece loved it so much. I gave it to her and at 7 she still snuggles under it.

    I hope yours brings you as much joy.

    The sock is looking good, keep it up!

  15. Your blanket is coming along very well! I love the surprise of the orange in it. Great skill to be able to knit without looking.

  16. Those socks are looking great, I love the baby stripes the yarn is creating, and the rib looks wonderful and perfectly cozy-wearable. :D

    And the blanket is fantastic, I love the colours. I've sometimes gotten into a crocheting-without-looking state of zen when I'm doing a no-counting-required bit of something while watching TV, and it's always awesome.

  18. I'll always remember my first short row heel ... I was so shocked that it came out properly!

    Love the blanket.

  19. Getting a sock heel right the first time -- that's a major feeling of knitterly power, isn't it?

    The socks look great and so does the blanket. Sometimes it's nice to have a mindless project that just keeps on going and going.

  20. Hooray for accomplishing your first short row heel! Both projects are looking great. I love the mindless knitting that a garter stitch projects offers, although I have yet to learn how to knit without looking down at my knitting. Neat trick!

  21. YAY for boy socks! I just started my husband's socks and it's amazing how much bigger I have to make them. LOL

  22. Cant knit socks!!Yours look cool!!The blanket looks beautiful. How big will it be?

  23. Your WIPs are looking fab - I'm really enjoying the blanket each week - it's looking great.

    I can knit simple stitches without looking - but that's where my Noro scarf keeps getting me into trouble - the yarn is so inconsistent that I get to a skinny but and knit stitches together :)

    And you are all making me feel I should learn to make some socks for MY husband - you're putting me to shame!
