WIP Wednesday

Oh my gosh, do I dare? Because I have to confess that even though I've read that a lot of people really enjoy seeing WIP's on blogs, I seem to only JINX myself by posting about them.

Exhibit A: My Stash-ghan (on my sidebar). Which if anyone ever notices is still at the same percentage as when I posted about it... I just haven't gotten back to it and I won't go digging through my blog but I also never finished a couple of sweaters I posted about either. I have a habit of only posting about Finished Objects and that forumla seems to work for me because I WANT to post about them when I'm done of course. My head can come up with the craziest things.

But, I'm going to try again:

I'm working on a baby blanket for a co-worker of my husband's whose daughter was born a YEAR ago. He volunteers me for these things and the only reason I'm trying to pump this out is because a different co-worker is due to have a baby boy in November and I'm making him some booties (I've made one, need to do the other one...forgot to get a pic yesterday!).
Guilt will get you every time.

Here's my socks I've been ever so S L O W L Y working on. I'm not liking the striping on these so I may overdye them with some kool-aid or food coloring when I'm done with the second sock. (I know my pictures are TERRIBLE, please forgive the dark shadows but it was so gloomy outside yesterday and I can't edit to save my life!) This is how pretty my yarn looks in a cake. I loved it in a hank and I love it in a ball, but I don't love it knit up. I know, I'm one of those crazy people.

I've really been tugged towards more "solid" sock yarns for awhile now, I'm really enjoying the look more for some reason but these fooled me, they were close so I didn't expect what I got. I hope to post closer up photo's so you can actually see the stripes (hopefully) when they're completed.

I've also added another Gretel in the mix as well. My cousin's 50th birthday is coming up in October so I just got a bee in my bonnet last night to whip her up one of those. Hope to finish that by the end of the week so I can send it out soon.

So that's with a million things to get done and I keep thinking of more. Please wish me luck! (gulp)

You're a heck of alot more productive than I am. I love the baby blanket and socks.

My WIP's seem to just keep growing and the percentages never change there either...LOL

That blanket is so cute! You might have a lot of WIPs, but at least you're knitting!

I haven't knit in weeks. I've been too occupied with book stuff, but I'm not complaining. I only wish that my only WIP wasn't the scarf that never ends. I'm sick of looking at that thing!
