year of projects: week 4

Hello, happy Sunday!

I didn’t knit too much this week, we spent a lot of time out of the house and I got pretty caught up in just doing outdoor things, so I didn’t pull out too much knitting. Although, I did knit at the beach for 30 minutes, that was nice and relaxing.

knitting with the whitest legs at the beach!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ never any color on me! #knittersofinstagram #socktawk #beachknitting

socks – 1/20

I have three pairs of socks on the needles! I tried this being non monogamous before and hated it but I’m at it again. I don’t even know how it happened. I worked on two different socks during this past week.

I say nope to the heat today! Hiding in with air conditioning & my Jelly Rolls, ready to start knitting the arch ribbing. #knittersofinstagram #socktawk #jellyrollsocks #craftastherapy #sockknittersofinstagram #knitpicks #hedgehogfibres

I cast on my Jelly Roll socks, I love the double cuff, it’s so much fun! I have gotten into the ribbed arch but I’m planning on ripping it back to knit just a plain foot, the ribbing is just too tight. I think if I had knit a size up, it would fit fine. For the next pair, I’ll have to remember to cast on more stitches.

blueberry waffling! It's the Regia Fluormania, it was a birthday gift & my husband hinted he wanted socks from it, so I'm being nice and knitting it for him. I've knit with the brand before and I liked it but this ball is not feeling great at all, hoping

I also cast on socks for my husband with the Blueberry Waffle pattern.Β He was out of town the day before my birthday and stopped into a yarn shop where he was and bought me two skeins of the Regia Fluormania in Neon Ocean. He thought I needed two for one pair but I don’t mind, I’ll just be sure to knit myself socks to match. I have knit socks from this line before and I liked it but this skein is not feeling great at all. I absolutely love how it looks, so I really hope a good soak will soften it up!

toys – still none but I have Knit Superheroes by Rebecca Danger out from the library, so I will be casting on Randolf Raccoon.

blankets – didn’t touch any again this week.

miscellaneous – nothing this week.

You can find other Year of Project updates here. I am loving finding so many new bloggers through this project!

  1. I love your jellyroll socks. I need to buy that pattern one day. I love how your husband bought you yarn and that you’ll both get matching pairs! Blueberry Waffles is such a popular pattern. I definitely want to knit a pair for myself. It’s on my YOP list.

  2. YOur socks look fabulous! You are brave to knit 3 pairs in the same time! Socks are the things I have to knit without another project.
    I love the different colours you knit with!
    Rose.

  3. Love the combination of both yarns you are using for your Jelly Roll socks and I do love how the Neon yarn is knitting up with the blueberry waffle, hope they soften up when finished.

  4. Oh wow .. fabulous colours in those socks you’re making. I’m going to have to do a bit of googling to find out what jellyroll socks are. Have a good week. xox

  5. So many socks! I really need to try knitting another pair of socks. I only knit one pair to completion. I really like that bright colorway you are working on for your husband.
