I finished these on saturday, but I was too lazy to post the pictures then 😛
They took me way longer than necessary to finish… I got bored of them, I think. I did find two other sock patterns to get excited about though. I actually paid for them (shocking, I know!)
I attempted to start one on Saturday while I was at the laundry mat…. the way the pattern was written made it so there was an extra 4 stitches left over from the pattern repeat…which seemed to make no sense to me. I was also using variegated yarn (my nummy rainbow-esque merino handyed sock yarn<3), which did not mesh well with the stitch pattern… I couldn’t really see what was going on 😛 . I frogged it and decided to start it over with another one of my handyed yarns, this one mostly solid (it has flecks of color, but not distracting 🙂
I’ve also warmed up to Wisp. It has gotten easier (even on the train!) to work on. I’m up to my third repeat. There are supposed to be 17 panels of fisherman lace; I have three done, and am on my third knit panel… a little ways to go. I might just keep going and use up both skeins for this; I suppose it depends on if I can squeeze out the whole 17 panels in one skein or not.
I think this is more of a scarf than a shawl… I’ve been mislabeling it the whole time! (oh well).
Hopefully I’ll be done before the end of the month… I might be able to make that happen. I’ve pretty much finished up the one swap I have due this month. I have two swaps due in July… will start cranking out shit for those later in the month/early July.
I feel like making a hat. Having a bad hair week made me rediscover ,y love of hats! I’ll have to make a hat by the weekend… I’m getting my hair done, which will prolly defeat the purpose, huh? But I can make a hat in an evening…
I have the most awesomest idea for a crocheted hat, too! ❤
Stay tuned. Pictures of Wisp later this week. hopefully there will be more progress 🙂
