Work In Progress Wednesday Number 16
Another Wednesday, another Work in Progress/Yarn Along mash-up *grins*
I'm reading a new book, having finished a couple of others this week, so I'm pleased to say that my aim of finding a little more balance between knitting and reading seems to be paying off. Partly motivated, I think, because I don't want to take a picture of the same book 2 weeks in a row for the yarn along *laughs*
Knitting-wise, as you can just about see above, the blanket is on the next cream section, my sock is nearing the end of the gusset decreases, Cria has been separated for the sleeves
I'm quite enjoying watching the way the yarn I dyed knits up, especially at points where the stitch count is different than the rest of the sock. For example, the interesting pink and purple pattern at the top of the foot, and the almost rainbow on the bottom of the heel:
I'm heading to see my mum at the weekend, so I'm looking forward to a couple of hours of in-car knitting each way. Boyfriend is happier that I will be taking the magic loop rather than the DPNs for this purpose (he was, justifiably I think, a little nervous of me knitting on tiny, very pointy needles, while in the car!)
