WIP Wednesday ~ Geekalong and Sock knitting

First of all, I am still considering this the 2016 Geek-A-Long blanket. I started it in 2016 with the 2016 squares and rules. I didn’t finish it in 2016, but that’s still officially which blanket this is. It doesn’t matter that I’ve already included some 2014 squares, or that I will be including some 2017 squares. If I can figure out a way to make the size difference work, I will be including some 2015 squares also. Because I like them all.

Anyway, here are two finished squares that I haven’t shown you yet. Mortal Kombat:

and The Legend of Zelda (Majora’s Mask).

Also my start on the very first GAL square ever, the Caffeine Molecule:

It will be knit with the same yarn combo as Majora’s Mask, because that’s what I already had out and I was feeling lazy. Plus, I had always planned to knit the caffeine molecule in a variegated yarn, so this still fits my grand plan. (Not that I really have a grand plan.)

I have also been working a little on the Babette Blanket (still want to get that finished this year!) though I have no new pictures of it. And my travel knitting has been the Hedera Socks. Since I’ve been working on that over my lunch breaks all year (hehe, I love being able to say that! One of my favorite things about New Year’s) I have gotten some decent progress on the socks. Here’s a slightly old photo of the first sock, taken just as I finished the heel flap and was going to start the heel turn.

Hedera progress 1/3/17

I have since finished the heel turn and started the gusset decreases. But again, I haven’t taken any newer pictures than this one.

I hope you’re having a great week, and get some good progress on your hobbies this year, whatever those may be!

    In 2027 check back with me on this blanket. You inspired me to consider it but I’ve got three afghans in process since 2014. I wanna make this so bad! It’s awesome. Totally queued but I can’t possibly start until I finish an afghan.

    Those squares are really neat. I like your new socks too.
