Work in Progress Wednesday 108

Hi everyone! As you read this (depending at what time you read it) I'm probably at the dentist...again. Bleh. I'm getting an old filling taken out and a new one to replace it. Not a fun way to spend your Wednesday morning, that's for sure!

I must say, you will all be impressed when I tell you about my knitting (maybe). Not only did I get good pictures of my Hitchhiker that I promised you, thanks to my husband. See!...





Remember the socks I said I was going to work on for my husband? I'm not. I think I'm going to frog them and start a different pair for him. I just don't like the pattern one bit. I love her others but this isn't doing it for me.

Instead I decided to finish a different pair of socks that was in my WIP pile. I would show them to you, but I can't because I FINISHED THEM!!! That's right, I'm going to have ANOTHER FO. Two Fridays in a row. I'll give you all time to comprehend that since it doesn't happen often for me.....

...

...

You back from the shock? Good.


Now to what I'm working on!  MORE SOCKS! As you can see, I'm trying to get things off my needles. I feel so weighed down right now. With Fall approaching, I have the urge to cast on anything and everything. I've promised myself I can't until I complete the projects I have started.


Remember these from March?





They're back! It's the Devil's Snare Socks. I started them in March using the March Candy Skein colorway, Leprechaun Lollipops. It's an easy pattern, but for some reason I can't remember it. I just finished the gusset tonight (I did the heel turn and gusset today, but then realized I dropped two YOs so I'm now un-knitting a few rows. Not very productive if you ask me. This is what I get for knitting this while at knitting group when I'm really hungry and tired.

Hopefully these will be done before I know it though, and I can move on to the next pair of socks that have been stuck on my needles forever.

What are you working on?

  9. Here I am in the middle of the day with too many wips that pull me down. There is only one thing to do, right?

  11. I've had to rip back myself :( so annoying. I love your colours - I've even told the whole world to read your blog on the basis of your colours :) OK, maybe not quite like that, but still.

    I think I mention it every week.

    This week is no different.

    I LOVE YOUR COLOURS.

  12. Your hitchhiker turned out beautifully! I'm inspired to make one myself. :) As for me, too many WIP's to count...looking forward to the slow down of life that always comes with fall.

  13. Hitchhiker is gorgeous! I can never knit a pattern correctly at knitting group. Now I save up my ends to weave in on Knit Night since I seem to be able to do at least that much :)

  18. That is one pretty HitchHiker! That pattern does such a great job with the wildest-coloured skeins that wouldn't normally "go together".
    The socks are also rather pretty...but then, I"m a sucker for socks ;)

  19. Ahhh, it's such a joy to get old WIPs off the needles! And every Autumn, I too get Startitis ... I just want to knit ALL the things! The green socks are like jewels ... and the scarf is like a rainbow!

  20. I love finishing things. I think that's why my most recent projects are all little things like hats. I submitted my name into WIP Wednesday!

  22. The hitchhiker is fantastic!

    I recently finished the Boyfriend Socks for a friend, they are manly, and interesting to knit.
