What's going on ...WIP Wednesday


Wednesday already and time once again for Tami's WIP Wednesday show and tell . Wow , a week goes by quickly . Head on over to Tami's to check out what others are working on . You'll be inspired .

Eli's cardi is soooo close to being finished . I just didn't have the energy last night , this cold is wearing me out . This morning I put in a good effort , but seriously , I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to finishing . I seamed and ripped a few times before I was satisfied . One sleeve left to do . Hopefully this will be ready for it's closeup for FO Friday .

Here's the current WIP , a pair of socks for DH Mike , who's been hinting  lately  that with the cool weather coming he 'd really love to have some new hand knit socks . He even pointed out the yarn that he thought I should use . What's a knitter to do , but cast on .  I really should knit more socks for him , but  man size socks are so big and I have a short attention span . These will keep him happy for a bit  ;-) .

Till next time have a good rest of the day !

Hmm, picking out the yarn too? That's a pretty strong hint! Looks like he's in luck because that socks really progressing!

Now take it easy and get better!

Love the red sweater! Hope it behaves well enough to take the stage on Friday. And your hubby is one lucky guy. Boy socks take F O R E V E R to knit!

You will get there. Just go slow and do your best. My husband will likely never get another pair of hand knit socks. I just don't like knitting socks anymore. All those sts on Worsted weight yarn would give me a sweater! OK, maybe not a sweater, but maybe a shawl.

I know what you mean about man sized socks ;) My boyfriend has one and a quarter socks and I am struggling to find the motivation to finish the second one!

I totally agree about the man size socks. Big and my DH only wants grey ones. Booooring!

I know about big men feet, lol. My Hubs wears 13s, and he has only been wearing hand knit socks lately. He's diabetic and finds store bought socks bother his legs.
