WIPs

That’s “works in progress” to those of you who don’t spend your free time on Ravelry, tracking your current knitting projects and hunting up new ones. And, at this point, I have quite a few. I am up to five half-complete pairs of socks (with a sixth already cast on), per my plan to knit first socks through the spring and early summer and then make their mates in the late summer and into fall. Here’s the full array:

And here’s a closeup of the legs. It’s clickable to enlarge — in the event that you want a closer look at the stitch patterns.

Little thumbnails of the three newest socks:

They are, from left to right:

(I wrote about the other two socks in the original post linked above, so I’m not including them again. In fact, I am only including the Thujas because I knit half that damned sock three times before I got it to both look right and fit, so it looks dramatically different than it did when I first posted a picture.)

I’ve decided to wimp out for my next project and start an ankle sock, just ’cause they’re so much quicker — and the yarn I’m using (Panda Cotton, which is a cotton/bamboo blend) seems much more appropriate for little, lightweight socks, rather than wintry ones.

And, socks aren’t the only works I have in progress. I also have tomatoes!

    Sarah, I’m starting to feel like we don’t speak the same language anymore. I think the only thing I recognized was “tomatoes”.

    @ wendalicious – I post pictures of knitting, you say, “Ooh, pretty!” What’s hard to understand about that? 😉
