Wednesday: WIP


Works in Progress…..  aka   WIP to all the knitters & crocheters!

I’m feeling pressured to knit/crochet during all my waking hours…………and some of the hours I should be sleeping!

First, there is the on-going Christmas Stockings project:  Copying a vintage stocking, not once, or twice, but 4 times…….for a local client.  (pretty sure she is expecting these for Christmas!)  🙂  I’ve got sock #1 off the needles and sock #2 is past the heel, heading towards the toe now.

Sock 1 & 2 moving right along.

These are made with wool yarn, and a touch of angora for the Santa beard, so they will need to be blocked when I’m done knitting.  At this point, they look like a messy bunch of knitting……

Alternating with the Stocking project, is my own self imposed challenge for September.  Yes, it comes right after August……….which is half over already!  This year, I’m attempting 30 Hats in 30 Days.  So far, I’ve completed hat number 9 and have the next 3 in progress….here’s a quick look at this weeks hats:

Several hats coming from the sewing room………not in picture taking stages yet!  In the works; some fleece baby hats and a baby bonnet fit for a christening!

Back to work!

  1. Four might end up being too much for me too! I’m not knitting any other Christmas items this year for sure! The client gave me permission to write up the pattern from their stockings, so I’m hoping to get that listed in my shop. The “pattern” is written in long hand, by the clients mother…. She made notes on recipe cards and had stitched them together at the top. Whenever something isn’t written clearly, her notes say “just look at the sock here”. And, she has nothing in her notes after the heel turn, except for explaining there is a row of SC at the top of the sock when done! Todays progress: Sock #2 is now on the foot portion………..sailing along towards the toe!
