Welcome to week #4 of a year of projects!
I spent most of this week finishing up and photographing my entries for Nerd Wars, Tournament #11, Round #2. I had to post my sock to prove my 50% dissertation progress, and I added the hate I shared with you last week as one of my challenge posts. I also posted the armwarmers for my WIP challenge. On top of that I posted two blanket squares for two other challenges. (Only the hexagon square was completed this week.)
The first sock is a dedication to Doctor Who's Companion, River Song, knit in a hand dyed yarn specifically for this sock pattern. The yarn is the Snug base from Pandia's Yarn and the colourway is called Spoilers dyed specifically for the Doctor Who Companion Sock Club. The pattern is called Spoilers Socks by C.C. Almon (JavaPurl) on Ravelry.
I am not entirely sure how I feel about this weird little toe, but we will see how it goes.
I finally cast on my son's Vinovia Socks, but after working toe up on the above socks I am not really loving this cuff down pair.
The hubby and I took a nice trip up to Bobcaygeon, Ontario and enjoyed walking around town and watching some ships pass through the locks. I think I finally found (fell in love with) the place where I would like to settle down in the near future. It is just so calm and relaxing and quaint. I just adore it!
As it was quite the drive there I obviously got a little more work done on my car travel project as well.
Last but not least I also finished the first lace repeat on my Tabitha Cocoon Cardigan. It's going slowly, but at least I am working on it. This picture is not up to date, but it will give you a feeling for what it is like.
