Okay... let's look at socks this Wednesday! There are a few pairs... First, the ones that I want to be knitting, and yet feel (semi) guilty knitting because they are for me: the Nessie Expedition socks! https://flic.kr/p/2f2SMvj I think I've said before, but I messed up the heel on sock #1 and didn't notice it… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Sock It To Me
So... remember how one of my 19 for '19 tasks for myself is to knit a myself Fair Isle sweater? Well, I have cast on that sweater now.

We're on to the first WIP of 2019! Yay! For today, I'm not going to touch on my UFOs, just the projects that I'm actively working on. (We'll get to the UFOs soon, though, I promise.) So, that means we have: 2018 Geek-A-Long blanket (aka the worsted-weight gift one) Multnomah Shawl I don't remember what… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 23 January 2019
