WIP Talk

I see it. I’m going with it

This is where I’m at. I’ve completed the squiggly bit at the bottom and the part that is done in the round. I did add two inches of length to the body because I’m past the belly shirt age.

I’ve started in on the second skein. I know I could have alternated skeins and not ended up with the stark difference. But you know what’s crazy, the change in color isn’t where the new skein was added. Notice how the bottom is darker and then the skein gets lighter. Well it got darker before I added in the new skein. I’m going with it. I am embracing the carnival attitude of this Malabrigo sock in the color carnival.

The pattern has been very straight forward. Lots of do this do that for this long. I love Casapinka patterns. She writes them the way my brain works.

I’ve just a bit back switched from knitting in the round to back and forth. My gauge has changed slightly but not too much. I’m going with it.

How are your projects going?

  4. I started a scarf with some clearance yarn, added the second skein of the same dye lot, same everything and it’s not the same. So I ripped the whole thing out. Le Sigh.

    Malabrigo is like that. No two skeins are alike.
