WIP-it Wednesday!

It’s been a while, eh, kittens?  But here is it, a new WIP-it Wednesday!  It’s not much…

…these are in progress right now. I just cast them on last night, in fact.  With very minimal effort, I’m already a red stripe farther along in the pattern.  These socks are for The Boy from yarn I snagged especially for him from a DDD update.  (I had mentioned the shop in my video blog when I flashed some of the yarn I’ve been stashing.) I’ve been blown away by how quickly the leg on these is going; who knew that socks for children go so fast?!  The plan is that these will be almost knee-high before I turn the heel and work on the foot.  With any luck I’ll have a finished sock in less than 48 hours and maybe even a pair before the weekend is over?  I can always dream.  All of the stuff in the house that needs to be put away and all of the art & curtain rods that need to be hung may prevent this from happening.  Bummer.

I had originally planned to work with this yarn during the two months we were homeless (yes, start to finish it was only a day or two shy of two full months) but I didn’t have as much time or desire to knit as I had hoped.  I got quite a bit done, but not as much as I thought I would. I ended up having a couple skeins too many of yarn with me, as well as my Dessert of the Month for the year-to-date from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  (At this rate, I may wait until the year is almost over and have a marathon cross-stitching week.  I think they’ll be adorable in my new kitchen. )  And let’s not get started on how I didn’t read a single book I brought along with me.

Anywho.  Point is, I’m still knitting. And I’ll hopefully catch up on some of the blogs I wanted to do for my 30th birthday and the Blog’s 5th.  The move really messed with a lot of things.
