WIP Wednesday – Two Types of Socks

Hello, Stitchy Friends! It’s time for another Wednesday update. Right now we are in the middle of March Break, which means I need to fight my son for computer access… to play games. (Most of my blogging I do on my laptop, but Final Fantasy must be played on the desktop.) We are having a great time, though, sleeping in, building Lego, and hunkering down and hiding from the wind and snow.

Candy Cane Stocking, designed by Dimensions (WIP)

The cold, snowy weather has put me in the perfect frame of mind to work on the Christmas stocking. Progress is slow, but at least it is progress.

Meandering Socks from Knit Picks

I’ve also picked up these socks again. They are Meandering Socks from Knit Picks’ book Artful Arches. I knit up the first one way back in the summer (!) without any problems at all, but I’ll be darned if I can get the heel to work this time. I just keep losing count no matter how carefully I keep track. (Maybe I shouldn’t be watching Drag Race at the same time…) The yarn is one of my new favourites, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Solo Cotone Print in colourway 4002. It is a lovely cotton/polyester blend with a nice bit of stretch to it. It knits up like a dream, but only if the knitter can keep count! 😉

More tomorrow, I promise.

    Sounds like a fun time is going on at your house. Beautiful work on your stocking. Love the reds and greens. I must say though I love the thread color in the socks. Just beautiful!! Hope you can find the right count and it moves smoother for you soon.
