Wip-it Wednesday (June 15th 2011)

Another WIP-it Wednesday report!  I made some serious progress this past week on the three pair of socks I was working on.  Check out where I was last week and see what progress was made!  I worked on nothing but them all week! 

First up are my I is for "I Shall Name Them George" socks.  I just turned the heel on the first sock last night and I am now working my way up the leg.  I am thinking I am not too fond of short row heels.  I like they way they feel on my foot but they are not easy for me to do...  Maybe more practice will help!

Next up are my J is for "Julie's Soft Socks".  I finished the first sock and am only a few rows away from starting the heel flap on the second sock!  This is in a heavier yarn so it moves along quicker.  Someone asked last week what yarn I used - it is something called Gala Spider - a polyester nylon mix made in Turkey.  I got a bunch of this stuff for $0.99 a skein!

Finally here is my progress on my K is for "Knitmore Girls Vanilla Socks"  I have turned the heel and am working my way down the gusset on the first sock. 

Over the next week I am going to focus on my Around the World quilt-ghan I am making for a friend.

And my weight loss - I am down a total of three pounds.  I lost the weight I gained while I was away and am back on track now!

  1. The socks look great. I have found the YOYO heel a much better short row heel, it is easier to do and gives a nice finish

  6. Your socks are great!! I am not a fan of short row heels but I suspect it is because I have only done a few. They probably require practice like most everything else.
