WIP Wednesday

It's half term this week so the children are at home. Unfortunately the weather is rubbish, I don't think it's stopped raining since Saturday evening. So instead of visiting to the park, going for walks and picnics we are at home being crafty and enjoying some chill out time.

I'm flitting between projects at the moment depending on what mood I'm in and how much time I've got. The one thing they've all got in common is that they are very simple, my brain is not in the mood for anything complicated!

I'm doing the waist decreases on my Grace Cardigan, I think I'm going to make it quite a bit longer than the pattern says. My favourite store bought cardigan is around 22 inches from the underarm, Grace is designed to go to 16 inches. I'm not sure if I'll go all the way to 22 inches but I want something that stops below the waistband on my trousers. I've got a long torso (and long legs!) so lots of commercial tops are a little shorter than I'd like. A longer cardigan buttoned up will keep my wobbly bits warmer!

Mr Soaring Sheep's socks are slowly progressing. I've got another 30 rows before I do the heel so over halfway there now. I like working on these in the car as they're simple and portable :-) I'm using the stitch pattern from Jeck socks but using my preferred toe up sock pattern instead.

Linking up with Nicole, Tami and Ginny

  2. I like having a complicated project or two and then the dead simple ones where I can half pay attention. I like picking up what I'm in the mood for and the time available. Lovely socks :)

    1. It's been rubbish! And today it's been ok but I've been stuck in waiting for a parcel! If it's nice tomorrow I think I'll take the children on the bus somewhere, should tire them out!
