WIP Wednesday 05.09.18

Current WIP count: 6

It’s all Emily at FogKnits‘ fault. She’s knit so many beautiful Hithchikers and shared them so often that I just had to give it a go.

I bought my first ever 100% cotton cake and I knew straight away that I wanted to make a Hitchhiker with it.

There were a few false starts with the wrong size needles and losing track of which row I was on, so it’s been cast on and frogged a few times, but then everything settled into place and it started chugging along quite nicely.

This is the result of a couple of hours so it’s going to take me a while.

But I’ve got the pattern memorised, and a handy dandy row counter, so it can be a semi-mindless knit while I ‘watch’ Agents of SHIELD.

I’ve had a couple of train journeys with nothing to do, so there’s been some progress on my skirt.

I might have to start measuring it, just to prove to myself that I am actually getting somewhere. At the moment one row takes around 30 minutes so it needs a good long session to make a visible difference. There are some simpler rows coming up, and the lower part of the pattern is more meshy, so I’m hoping it won’t take the 50+ hours I just calculated…

The allure of new yarn means that Roses for Grandma has only had a couple of leaf rounds added this week.

But there’s no rush.

And that’s all I’ve done this week. I think it might be time to start something smaller as well, just to get a quick FO under my belt. What’s everyone else working on? Got any news to share? Let me know in the comments!
