WIP Wednesday

These I am calling Pour Mama chausettes. For some reason, I am naming my socks in French. The goal is to finish these by Mother's Day. I am using Kroy FX Socks yarn. I really like the colorway, but the yarn feels a bit scratchy as it knits through my fingers. It is machine washable, so keeping my fingers crossed that it softens up for my mom's feet. My double pointed needles are 16" so the needles are shorter. I am going to order longer ones, as the little ones are difficult for my fingers to manage. I am using a beaded rib pattern, after 2 inches of 2x2 ribbing for the cuff.

I am off on a field trip tomorrow with the kids. Three hour bus ride there, three hours back. Lots of knitting time. My class is a lovely group, they require no behavior management. They like to sit low in their seats and chat with one another. Couldn't ask for a better group of kids! Though it will be a LONG day, I'm sure we will have fun and I'm actually looking forward to some knitting time. Here's to hoping that the weather holds for us; we sure have had a rainy spring season here.

Figured I'd better post to WIP Wednesday, as FO Friday would be less often. I don't seem to knock a project off the needles that quickly!

  1. I love the color of the yarn. It's really nice. Though I love any yarn with blue.

  2. Hope you get a lot done on the field trip. Love the pictures of your cats.

  3. You are so blessed to have children with no behaviour management, where did you get them?? :) Like the yarn, let me know how you get on with the itchiness

  4. I love that colorway too! I actually would love to hear how the socks feel after you wash them. I have a few skeins of that yarn that I couldn't resist in my stash due to price/color (they were on sale). I hope it gets a little softer!
