Wednesday's WIP's

I've been making progress on my Bandwagon Socks, as you can see I've turned the heel on one of them and I'm going to do the second in a bit. I'm not sure whether to continue the pattern up the whole of the leg or just the front part. It's an easy enough pattern but TAAT socks feel so sloooooow and I'm kind of looking for a quicker method!

I love the pooling on these socks so much

I wouldn't normally pair such a multicoloured yarn with a strong stitch pattern but I think it works ok with these. They look even better when they're worn so hopefully when I've finished and blocked them a smidge you'll be able to see the pattern more clearly.

I've also started a new project, it's another pair of socks! I know, what a surprise ;-) My camera doesn't like these colours at all. The yarn in the ball is a more accurate version of the colours. It's called "Fire Bird" and is by Flamboyance yarns who are no longer trading.

I've had a struggle finding the right pattern for this yarn. I have cast on a few times with different patterns and none of them felt quite right. Currently I'm doing Hermione's Everyday Socks which I think I'm happy with. Hmm maybe that means I'm not happy. I dunno, what do you guys think?

I'm still keeping up with my running. We moved up to running for 2 minutes today and having just 2 minutes walking time. Next week the running is 3 minutes :-S However I am finding it ok, I think I'm starting to get better at pacing myself and can just keep plodding away. It's a good challenge and I'm pleased with how I'm improving. We repeat it 6 times each session and try to have 3 sessions each week. It's half term next week so I'm not sure when I'm going to do my runs, might have to wait until Mr Soaring Sheep is home in the evenings.

Pippin is being a bit of a goof lately, he's teething so likes chewing on hard things. Carrots straight from the fridge feel good on his gums apparently. And I've no idea what's going on with the ears...!


Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along :)

    1. I think he did actually. Must be quite soothing on the gums having one straight from the fridge

  4. Oh look at him with his ears and a carrot!! I almost forgot about the socks - I think the yarn is really suiting that pattern.

  6. I think Hermione will work w/that colorway. It's light enough. Sometimes it hard to see because you've just started it. I like the pooling too in the first pair. It's like heat sensors.

  9. These socks are knitting up great, and I think you have chosen a great pattern to knit with the yarn....looking very psychedelic. Oh I detest trying to capture colours of yarn sometimes, but I think the yarn in your new socks project looks lovely x
