WIP Wednesday: 28/52

Happy Wednesday!

I’m making progress on John’s socks. I’ll be turning the heel the next time I pick them up. I’m doing a 3×2 rib, which is pretty mindless. The yarn is pretty though, so they feel like they are going fast.20180718_1311592136061709944270993.jpg

The sweater still appears to be cursed. I pulled it out to take a photo of it and pulled about a dozen stitches off the needle. I was able to pick them all up, but it made me panic. I’m starting to worry I’ll run out of yarn. I have enough according to the pattern, but I didn’t swatch so I could be off significantly. I’ve decided if I run out I’m going to do a block of charcoal below the stripes and I’ll be happy with it. It will be fine. I swear. 20180718_1315135617852470646930310.jpg

As cursed as the sweater appears to be, I love it. I enjoy working on it. The colors and the stripes make me happy. It is slow going (oh boy, those rows are getting long, and I still have 30 more rows of increases to do). I keep reminding myself how short the rows will seem once I put the sleeves on waste yarn. I’m also reminded that set in sleeve sweaters seem to knit up much faster.

What are you working on this week?
