WIP IT!

W.I.P. it good! Sorry, couldn’t resist. Apparently I’ve been on a W.I.P.-kick this week. I’ve finished two pairs of socks! These ones, I only had to do an afterthought heel on. They’ve been languishing since 2011 (!) because, well, it was a little daunting to me at the time – new technique and all – and they were put safely away only to be forgotten about. Oops? I came across them this week and decided to suck it up and give it a shot. Happy to report that it worked like a charm and is much, much easier than I thought it would be.

 

What’s a girl to do when she plays yarn chicken and loses… spectacularly? Why, use a contrasting yarn, of course! That’s what happened with these, as you can see. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about them yet, but they sure are cozy.

Unfortunately, these weren’t the only pair of socks I was playing yarn chicken with. Even more unfortunate was that I had no yarn to contrast or compliment the socks in question with, so I ended up frogging two pairs. Ah well. A shawl also ended up in the frog pile, so not all W.I.P.-work has led to a FO, but it has cleared out my long, long list of W.I.P.s so I’m still calling it a win.

    So no more WIP? That’s WIP it good. I hate it when I run out of yarn or thread. My looong list of WIP pile I’m sure has bred and multiplied I need to put it on some of birth control 😉

      I love the harvest ones, too. I still have some left over, so will try to do something with that, though I’ll not have enough for another pair like this, I’m afraid. But something… 😉

      yes, the blue/purple ones are quite comfy. Good for lounging around the house 😉
