WIP Wednesday – a bit late

Man o Man has time marched on. I promised you my mojo eater ideas. So here they are: 1. All my projects are boring to me. Too much stockinette stitch and ribbing. 2. The crud came knocking this weekend. The unknown beginnings were messing with me. 3. There is a new knitter in the house. My boy is knitting me a love scarf, since we all know I don’t do...

Since I have not received this months yarn offerings, I thought I would show my hang test for the swatches. Not much changed but the white fingering weight yarn that I talked about 2 weeks ago. It grew by 1/4″ in length. I think that these yarns did not change much because they were not large enough swatches to get an accurate showing of what the...

I only have one active thing on the needles. They are BILs socks for Christmas. I am almost done with one sock and then will get onto the second one. I hope to cast on for Labyrinth later this weekend. Churchable is gone all weekend so I should have lots of time to knit while he is gone. I am also working on a really cool pattern idea. I woke up at 4:30 AM...
