100% more Distraction

Lots of things have caught my crafty attention over the last few weeks.

It has helped that spring has brought two major snowstorms back to back. The view out my window looks like:

Works in Progress

I’m having a hard time getting back into knitting a patterned sock, so I chose a sock with an interesting rib and some fun arch shaping. It helps that I’ve done this pattern before. I’m pathetically slow when knitting rib though, so these will take awhile.

Large Hadron Collider Socks
String Theory Colorworks “Inertia” in Large Hadron Collider

Half way! I kitchenered the toe a few nights ago. Looking forward to this fun pair joining my sock drawer.

Colour Affection
Sanguine Gryphon “Bugga” in Tulip Tree Beauty, Common Emerald Moth and Bess Beetle

Sucked it up and frogged back the 3rd stripe section. Let’s see if I can figure out what I was doing wrong. (I couldn’t when I looked at it) Playing with the Bugga was super nice though, so I want to work on the project.

I managed to get 2 repeats of the 3rd section back. This pattern and I are not clicking… I have to say I hate working on it. But I know that I’m going to like the end result. Oh the “joys” of being a product knitter.

Got inspired. Eevee is my favorite pokemon and I might follow this up with his over evolutions, or not… we’ll see.

Intentionally spun thick (though it turned out thick/thin) and 2 plied. I love how squishy it is! I think I like 2 ply yarn when the plies are more consistent though, so that will be a challenge next time.
