WIP Wednesday

This week feels like it's flying past, how is it Wednesday already? I've not really made much progress on my projects this week, been a bit distracted watching our new chickens. And then this morning we went to IKEA for some shelves and came back with lots of other useful stuff that we didn't realise we needed... Isn't that always the way lol.

My rainbow socks are now onto the purple section, nearly ready to start the ribbing. I can't wait to have these finished and ready to wear.

Speaking of finishing, I've completed the first of my Express lane socks and cast on the second one yesterday. I love how the stitch pattern flows into the ribbing. I tried to take a photo of it over my hand to give you an idea

I think I'm going to make it this week's mission to get those rainbow socks finished. They've been hanging around too long and I want to cast on something new. No idea what but that's part of the fun isn't it :-)

  5. Beautiful! I like the cuff ribbing and how it flows into the sock pattern as well. It is always the smallest details that make the sock the best. :)

    1. Thanks :) They're actually more of a purple colour in real life but my camera was struggling with it.

  8. Happiness is rainbow socks. The express lane sock is like cars racing in a tunnel at night.

      I've wanted chickens since I was a little girl. I remember going to someone's house who had some chickens in a little rabbit run thing and realising that you didn't have to have a whole farm just to have a few hens lol. Ours are only 8 weeks old so going to be a while before they're laying. Will be ever so exciting when they do though :)
