Wednesday WIPs

After completing my pair if November Socks last weekend I’ve decided it’s time to finish my Christmas At Hogwarts Socks. I am only on the first sock but I’ve finished the heel and gusset decreases, and about 2” of the foot. This means I will have the first sock finished this week and will be able to immediately cast on the mate. I do have a bit pooling on top of the foot but that is due to the creation of the heel and the only other way I could have avoided that is if I worked an After Thought Heel or a Short Row Heel. This is something I will consider next time if I have this kind of self-striping yarn.

I’ve set my Nurmilintu Shawl aside so I can finish this pair of socks but plan to pick it back up soon. I only have about 6 more rows to go before starting the second lace panel and will be almost finished with my first skein of yarn. I really love how this shawl is knitting up and can’t to finish it so I can wear it!

What are you working on today ?

    1. Yeah, I hope you are enjoying knitting the Musselburgh hat! I really enjoyed mine and thinking of making another one. Birkin is so beautiful… can’t wait to see your photos!

  1. That gusset pooling is something I’ve learned to live with after knitting many socks over the years. I’m working on finishing up a pair of socks myself with my new heel. I knit the first sock cuff down and am doing the second toe up. I just started the heel yesterday, so I’m in the home stretch now!

    1. Me too Sarah and usually it isn’t too bad but this time it is quite noticeable. I can’t wait to see your finished socks and intrigued by your new heel.
