WiP Wednesday

I stayed up past midnight last night so I could cast on right away for my Camp Loopy project!  I’ve gotten a few rows done on it so far today, and hopefully I’ll have a good chunk of knitting time tonight to work on it.

Camp Loopy has begun!

Pattern: Catkin by Carina Spencer
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy in color Gothic Rose and Enchanted Knoll Farm superwash sock in color Gold Dust Woman.
Needles: US4

I need to find buttons for it, because it doesn’t count as finished for the contest if it’s not blocked with all buttons and such sewn on, so the hunt for the perfect buttons needs to start now!

For WWKiP day I pulled out a pair of two-at-a-time socks that had been in hibernation, since they were simple stockinette stitch.  I knew I’d be busy gabbing and such at the Guild’s event, so I needed something very simple to work on.  We had a great event with a fantastic turn-out!

Anyway, here are my socks in progress – I’m going to do an afterthought heel on these (the heel will be where the white waste yarn is located.)

Pattern: improvised, basic toe-up stockinette sock with afterthought heels.
Yarn: Knit Witch Celestial Bounce in color Starry Night
Needles: US2

I’m sure the socks will go into hibernation again while I’m working on the Catkin, but I am anxious to get these done so I can try the afterthought heels out!

Happy Knitting everyone!

    You always do such exciting projects, I’m jealous!

  2. Very cool socks! I love knitting 2 at a time to have them done … not so keen on the yarn tangling and such though. I was thinking of doing Camp Loopy but am in too many other KAL right now!

    • Yeah, I don’t prefer two at a time because of the yarn tangling – and they take so long to finish! I like the satisfaction of seeing a finished sock, even though I know I have to knit another one. I had started these for a two-at-a-time class that I taught a couple months ago, and then I promptly put them aside once the class was over! :-)

    Ooh, that Catkin pattern is just gorgeous, and your colours look great. Good luck with the button hunt, too!

  4. I love Catkin and have it queued on Rav myself – looking forward to see it finished, blocked and embuttoned (what’s the correct word for that?!?!)

    YAY for button searching. I always love to find perfect buttons, even for my friends’ projects. LOL Can’t wait to see it finished, blocked and with buttons! Love the socks.

    • Thanks! Yeah, I think some trips to button-having stores are in order. I haven’t rooted through my button stash yet, though… I *might* have something suitable, but maybe not.
