WIP Wednesday 05.08.20

Current WIP count: 7

Yes I’m one WIP down, but that’s because I frogged rather than finished something.20190410_091721-1.jpg

The Havana blanket has been sitting in a box for over a year, and I realised the thought of working on it wasn’t bringing me any joy, so I frogged it.
I’m actually quite relieved now it’s gone. Maybe I’ll try again one day if I find the right yarn.

I’m also chugging along with my socks. Apologies for the photo quality – it’s miserable weather in Scotlandia today.

I sort of wish I’d gone for a contrasting heel as well, especially looking at the amount of main yarn I have left.
So these may end up as not-quite-matching socks in the end. That’s okay though; they’re only for me and hardly anyone will see the toes whether they match or not. I can’t wait to get these done and make a start on another pair for The boyfriend.

  1. I think knowing when to throw in the towel on a WIP is a good skill. There are too many just sitting upstairs that I’ll probably never touch again, but don’t have the heart to unravel.

    1. Yeah I really didn’t want to frog it for a long time, because I know it was pretty and I know I enjoyed it at the time. But honestly it’s such a relief not having it hanging over me any more! Maybe you could just frog one of them and see how it goes, maybe the mojo will come back.

  2. Love them! The whole running out of yarn thing happens to me with almost every project because Iโ€™m trying to use up stash and then end up having to buy another ball of yarn. No wonder we canโ€™t get rid of stash!

    1. That’s partly why I’m trying to get used to not-quite-matching things. There’s a wee bit of darker purple in my Coastal Crochet blanket because I ran out of the lighter stuff and I was determined not to buy more. It’s definitely still a process though.
