WIP Wednesday

Well I've been busy, then I've been battling my internet and flickr but finally I can post some photos. I've finished the socks! I will have a FO Friday post for the first time in aaaages :-D

Can't wait to get these babies properly blocked and photographed. The yarn is so vibrant and I love the slipped stitch pattern. It's Jeck by the way, a free one on ravelry. I modified it slightly to fit my normal toe up sock pattern.

So my projects for this week are now my granny squares blanket which has a new row round it since the photo was taken and a long neglected lace shawl

The granny squares I'm working on are actually for the centre of my blanket, I've got some bigger squares to go round the edge. I'm looking forward to laying it all out and joining it together.

The shawl is a Booknits one called Out of Darkness. I'm making it for my Mum but only working on it sporadically depending on how much time I've got to concentrate. My ravelry notes say I cast it on in March, should probably get a move on and finish it then!

Thanks for dropping by, pop back on Friday to see my finished socks :-)

    1. Thank you :) I think for me it's partly a "getting-ready-to-move-house" thing. I can't start packing yet so I'm trying to get my WIP pile down instead
