WIPs Wednesday 4/16 and a Winner!

So this week I have not touched my shawl.  I am on the foot of my sock. I really like how they are pooling. They definitely remind me Van Gogh's Sunflowers.
Mostly I have been obsessed with my sock yarn blanket.  I started the month with 67 squares on the blanket. I have been knitting on it like crazy.  I have knit 29 squares so far! Most months I have knit 7-10 squares, but in half a month I have done triple that! I love how it is coming along and find it hard to stop when I finish each square. 
It doesn't look like much, but it already keeps me warm while I am working on it. 

Jen motivated me to work on my sock yarn blanket this week.  I don't have nearly as many squares as her, but I'm enjoying working on it when I can.  I moved a bunch of my mini skeins into a cute bucket that I keep in the living room so it will help inspire me.  Most of my mini skeins came from leftovers from old projects, Jen's projects and swaps.  I started a journal where I keep track of who sent what yarn, include any cards they sent and things like that.  When I'm done it will be neat to look back and see where certain squares came from.

I've also been busy stitching on my Tea Time cross-stitch but left it at work, so I can't share any photos :(

I am about to cast on a pair of socks that I am test knitting for knitlovesteph. I'm going to be using Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock-Fit for a Queen Angel Fish.  The pattern looks relatively easy, yet I still get to learn a new technique.  I'm pretty excited about it and can't wait to share photos as I get started on it.

  1. Happy dance for my lucky number draw - Thanks to both of you!

    I love the sock yarn blankie - I am soooo tempted but I have a feeling I won't finish and I generally use up my leftovers on lil toys. . . but I am drooling on everyone elses.
