WIP Wednesday 2017.1

One of my goals for 2017 – which, of course, I have yet to blog about at all – is to keep up with semi-regular WIP Wednesday posts, even if all I do is explain why I have nothing to show.

This week, I’ve got three WIPs, none of which I have color photos to share. We’ll pretend it’s to keep an air of mystery, not just because I wasn’t able to get the colors quite right when I took the photos last night, well after sunset.

My first WIP is a pair of socks I’m making for my mom. These aren’t active right this second but will be once I feel like knitting socks again, probably in a few days. I had knit several pairs in a row there and just needed a break.

While the yarn itself is not new to me – Miss Babs 2-Ply – the pattern is. It’s called Jeck and a free pattern from designer Regina Satta. I swear my mom chose the color herself, though I do find it hilarious it’s named Bat S**t Crazy. You can’t tell here, of course, but it’s a mixture of deep blue, green, and brown. Not at all what I would have picked for her, but it was her first pick of the four colors I offered.

The WIP I’m actively working is a hat for a coworker. I’ve made the pattern before (Roku by designer Olga Buraya-Kefelean) but never did take a good FO picture to share with you. Again, no color photo but you it’s a muted, sort of medium blue Ella Rae Classic Superwash.

I’m also working on my perpetual WIP, getting the house organized, but no one needs to see before/after photos of my straightened-up linen closet. (Right?)

What are you all working on this week?
