Wednesday’s Progress Check {7}

Happy Wednesday!  This was the view of the park across the road this morning.

foggy with a misty snow
The park was foggy this morning and the snow was a light mist.
Miss Sydney was on watch for any dogs or joggers.  Instead, it was very calm and quiet.

On the needles . . . The vanilla socks from last week are in time-out because of an uncooperative heel that was knit and tinked three times and is still wonky.  For the life of me, I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.  So, I’ve returned to my original plan and started Hermoine’s Everyday Socks.  The yarn, a prize from Karen of NothingButKnit, is Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet.  This is a lovely new-to-me yarn.  I love it and the pattern together.  Below the socks is the re-start of my second Brickless using Wolle’s Color Changing Cotton.  To be honest I can’t remember why it was frogged, but it’s getting a second chance.

On the wheel . . . (or at least soon to be) is the lovely Greenwood Fiberworks’ Downton, 85% BFL and 15% Tussah Silk.  This is a new blend for me and I’m looking forward to giving it a try.

On the Kindle . . . is still the Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club.  Interesting characters with an odd twist here and there.  I should finish soon.

So how are your projects coming along?  Does winter weather have a tight hold on your area?

  1. BFL and silk is one of my favorites to spin. I love those colors too! I am wanting to spin for another Brickless – they are so addicting to knit!

  2. Winter just won’t let go here. I love that the sock is in a time out. I do the same with my projects. I have a few that need to sit and think about their behavior.

  3. love the socks and nothing wrong with switching to a tried an true pattern. Maybe there’s a mistake in the pattern, check other’s project pages to see if there was a similar problem. Or an update to the pattern.

  4. Love that shawl color! I need to do Brickless one of these days. Right now I’m reading and enjoying The Light between Oceans.
