I would really like summer to slow down a bit. It feels like I was just writing my WIP post last week. I am not looking forward to being stuck inside this winter, but this week has been so hot we have been stuck inside a few days.
This week I finished my first watermelon sock. As you can see, they look good enough to eat. I usually make tall socks, but opted for a short sock. I’m pretty happy with them, I think I would go crazy if I had to knit that much stockinette without a pattern.
I’m still waiting on my knitting needles, so Audrey’s sweater is still hibernating. The cocoon cardigan continues to hibernate as well (I can’t bring myself to touch it when there is a heat advisory outside). My retirement cardigan is still tucked away in my closet waiting for me to find motivation to pull it out.
I’ve never had this many projects on the needles before. So what should I do? Cast on a Wonder Woman Wrap, obviously. I started two days ago and I’m making very slow progress. I think I’ll be working on this project for a long time. I got a few rows in while the kids napped yesterday, but usually it will be my evening project if I’m not watching a show that needs concentration. It feels good to be starting a new large project that I actually enjoy.
Next week I hope to get to the yellow in the Wonder Woman wrap and to the heel of the second watermelon sock. I hope you are able to resist the siren call of a new project before you finish a work in progress. Have a great week!
