(I wrote this yesterday when it was actually Wednesday. But I hadn’t had time to take the pictures, so consider this my WIP Wednesday on Thursday)
I was going to show off my work in progress like I try to do every week…and then I finished my Camouflage socks.
No, you can’t see the pictures. I’ll save those for Finished Object Friday. See? Now you have something to look forward to!
No little hexagonal Granny Squares either, I’m afraid. I’ve been concentrating on finishing the socks. To the point where, when I realized that it would take only a little while to finish off the last toe, I decided not to take them to the office with me for my lunch knitting, and instead took the stripey socks that were on hold from the second half of last month.
So what do I have, other than a pair of socks that were left in limbo for half a month?
I started a sweater. Meet the Cobblestone Pullover, designed by Jared Flood from Interweave Knits’s Fall 2007 issue. I was browsing through knitted tops when I came across the pattern, and as I’m always trying to knit Robin a sweater (but rarely succeed), I figured I’d give it a try. The sweater looks good on a variety of different guys, so I figure it will be a good fit.
Finally…remember I mentioned I was watching old episodes of Dr. Who? I’ve managed to get through Tomb of the Cybermen (2nd Doctor), known to me as “the one with the amazingly heavy, electrified styrofoam doors”. I’m now on the arc known as The Mind Robber, which I am trying to decide should have been named “Zoe’s Sparkly Butt” or “Dr. Who in the land of the Giant Black Saltines”.
Humour aside, I’m really enjoying the show, particularly seeing how the storylines develop and the writing evolves. While it’s a shame that most of the original BBC episodes seem to have disappeared or been destroyed, I have to say that if one story is 5 or 6 episodes, it would have taken forever to wade through the entire series.
