WiP Wednesday

My husband has been out of town again, which means I have surprisingly little free time to write up blog posts!!  But I’ve stolen a few moments today to post for WiP Wednesday.

You all will be proud of me  – I’ve knitted another Master Knitter Swatch!  (Thanks for the butt-kick, B!)  It’s blocking now and hasn’t been seamed yet, but it’s a start.

Swatch 7 - blocking

I’m starting on the next swatch today, too.  (You guys seriously need to keep me on task with these!!  I have GOT to have as many done as I possibly can before the TKGA conference at the end of September!!)

I also finished my first sock for the Camp Loopy project #2.  These took me so much longer than socks usually take me – mostly because of the whole frogging and re-casting-on drama that I had with these.  I think the second sock should go much faster.  (I hope!)

These are the Viking socks I linked to last week. I’m knitting them in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock yarn – in the Calligraphy colorway.   The yarn is showing the cables much better in the 2×2 rib, I think.  I’m very happy that I decided to switch patterns.  Sock #2 was started last night, but I’m only a couple rows into the ribbing, so there’s not much to see there.

Anyhow, that’s all I have for today.  The boys are now fighting upstairs over who knows what, so I need to dash!

Happy Knitting everyone!!
