Welcome to this Valentine’s Day edition of WIP Wednesday. This week I’ve not shown my projects a lot of love-I think I may have been slightly delusional when I thought school holidays would mean more craft time!
We’ve been out and about a bit in the car, and I wanted a more portable project than the baby blanket (which is lovely but getting quite large!) I decide to frog the shawl I’d started as I didn’t think I’d ever finish it. (Also I forgot which size needles I’d used, having borrowed them for another project. We won’t mention that bit though.) I loved the yarn colours, though, and took advice from a knitting Facebook group over which sock pattern would suit it instead. I settled for Hermione’s Everyday socks, a free pattern from Ravelry. I’m using 2.5mm 9″ circular needles, and have had to add some stitches to cater for my wide feet. I’m not sure whether it’s the way I knit, or the colourway of the yarn, but I’m really disappointed with the pattern. The texture just hasn’t shown up as well as on the pattern photos, so I’m not really sure whether to frog and try a different pattern or carry on. I’ll leave it a little while and see. (I’ve triple checked the pattern to see if I was following it correctly too!)
The baby blanket has had a couple more rows added, but I haven’t taken a photo as it doesn’t look much different!
What are you working on this week? Have you started anything new? Let me know, feel free to share a link in the comments too.
