Such a Tease...

I really seriously meant to post yesterday for WIP Wednesday-I honest to goodness swear! However, yesterday got busy with TRX (time #3!) and walking the dog and going out for round one of a friend's birthday (because when you're a 20-something, there are usually multiple nights of celebration). Long story short- WIP Wednesday is happening on Thursday…again. Shocker of the century, I know :)

All Christmas presents in the WIP list this week-I do have an FO for tomorrow that is for me, me, me :)

Bigfoot Socks

Now at a more correct foot length! Making some good progress on the leg-thinking cuff time is rapidly approaching. Hoping that sock number 2 will go a little more quickly…not ripping back almost 40 rows should help a lot :)

Hermione's Hat
Just picked up a skein of Malabrigo in Emerald to make one for me after Christmas knitting is done. I really like how this is looking and hope the recipient likes it as well!

No Vampires Here
Something new! I'm using a cable pattern from the second Vogue Stitchionary called the Garlic Braid and the basic math for toe-up socks from Laura"s Socks on a Plane pattern. These are for my grandma and I am so totally enjoying them. The yarn is Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock in Silver and it is absolutely delicious :)
Although a day late, still linking up with Ginny and the rest of the crew! Happy Thursday!


  1. I love the detail and texture of the stitches in the patterns you've chosen. And um yeah, that's a big @ss sock, ha!

    Happy Knitting!

    1. Thank you! I'm thinking I might have to do the Vampire Sock in a deep red next…love it so much!

  2. All your projects look great. Your grandma is going to LOVE those socks.

    1. Thanks, Dee! I just hope I can finish them in time!

  3. The stitch and texture of that sock looks great, those socks are going to be awesome.

  4. That garlic braid is really pretty!
