I've not done much knitting this week, the commute, though short, has been overcrowded and no seats, and lunchbreaks are a bit manic! I feel as if I have done nothing all week, just pick up dropped stitches and repair mistakes! Garment, shawl, 3 pairs of socks and beekeepers quilt makes for too many WIPs for me so I'm culling one.
It's this one. A brave idea, knitting two socks at once, but it's dreadful knitting and I'm not enjoying any of it. the stitches are all uneven (where I've been picking up stitches which were split or dropped) and it's slow and fiddly.
Bye-bye Flying Saucer socks!
Now what to do with the yarn? I am not winding it up separately, so I may just knit a pair of fingerless mitts with the yarn doubled, hope it makes a mad pooling pattern!
The Little Child socks are still going well, though I keep messing up the very simple textured pattern. I've accidentally deleted the photo I took on my mobile this morning, but I'm workign the gusset decreases now.
And new socks! These are beaded socks, Winter's Eve. I've made a few mistakes with these too, so much wasted knitting time! But I'll persevere. These will be for SKA October challenge.
Pretty beading on the cuff
I'm going to try to finish the first purple sock, and get the leg and heel and gusset knitted of this sock over the weekend - and do some shawl knitting!
