Yarn Along

I can't bear to show you the sweater progress in fear that you'll die of boredom. I have been knitting on a few things recently since I decided that the sweater was not going to be finished by the end of the Ravellenics.

One is a secret project so I can't reveal it yet. 

Then there's always a sock. 


I have had this on the needles since I don't know when.  I'm not thrilled with the yarn  - it's not as soft as I thought it might be but I'm loving the stripes. 


So it gets some love here and there.

I'm still "reading" Divergent on audiobook hoping I can finish before the movie comes out in a few weeks. 

Joining Ginny.

I had a pair of socks that took me a year to knit, but I finally finished them.
I think your yarn is very spring like.
Are you enjoying Divergent? I have all three of the books on Audible, but I haven't listened to them yet.

I know that "still knitting a sweater sinking feeling on a wednesday" so well!
I love the colours of your stripes.
I giggled when you said there's always a sock - so true!

Oh, Donna, I just had to chuckle when I read your post...and then the comments! A laugh was just what I needed this windy, rainy morning. "There's always a sock..." :) Love the colors! I'm sure my purple baby blanket is getting boring week after week...hadn't thought of it that way until now. Oh my. :)

I like the colors of that yarn. I want to try some socks. Think I'll make some for myself first and then the kiddos.

Oh goodness, I am sure everyone dies of boredom to see my projects week after week getting an inch knit here and an inch knit there :-) The socks look really great!

You can't help but like stripes!

I like simple, striped socks. Don't know why, but they make me happy. :-)

The yarn may soften when washed ... else you could always donate them.

I, too, love the stripes ... very cool.

I find that sometimes the yarn softens up after blocking. Hopefully, that helps with your socks.
