WIP Wednesday: Behind The Curve

If this was a different project I might have chucked it aside by now. The going is slow. At least the gusset decreases are done and I have the knowledge that the second sock will go quicker.

But boring sock knitting is not what I want to talk about. I’ve been way behind the curve on watching “Outlander”. We’ve finally caught on to its popularity and the availability of the first couple of seasons on Netflix. It’s really well done though I have no idea about the historical accuracy. I had family in Scotland (though further south) at this time so I kind of feel like it’s a view of their life. For those that like knits there are a few to see in the show and many more inspired patterns on Ravelry. Are you an “Outlander” watcher?

    I haven’t seen it actually – where in Scotland is it set? My ancestors were called Robertson so presumably came from the Rannochmoor area where the clan was based. I went through there once and it was really grim-looking! Forbidding might be the best word.

    Nope, nor read the books. Maybe someday, but I just don’t watch TV anymore.

    I have never watched it, but the costume designer used some of my armwarmers on one of the ladies during the part where they’re waulking the cloth! And there’s a lace cowl you can spot in the same scene. So it’s kind of exciting when the Outlander knits come up, even though nothing I made was used for the main characters or became iconic. 🙂

    years ago I read the first book, and liked it, but haven;t kept up with it. I would watch it if we had Netflix. Sigh.

    Sock is looking good!

  8. I haven’t, but my good friend keeps talking about the books and the show so I’ll probably watch it at some point.

    I tried watching Outlander but it’s a little too romantic for me. Same with Tudors. I keep trying.

  10. I was an avid watcher, right up until a certain point I don’t want to say in case it’s a spoiler. That first season is one of my favourite favourites though.
