WIP Wednesday

It has been a slow crafting week.

Instead, I’ve been doing a great deal of work outside mulching, planting, playing in the sunshine with the kids and reading on the deck.

It has been nice to be outside.

I have been slowly adding to my Faux Fair Isle Poncho each night though.

I decided to stash bust rather than buying the navy color shown in the pattern picture.


Instead, I am using some Vanna’s Choice gray and I think it looks nice with the Red Heart Derby Fair Isle.


This has been a good “tv watching” project.

Although I may have made a couple of increases incorrectly-scooping up the bar from back to front rather than front to back.

Thats what happens with a “don’t think too hard” project.

However, it really doesn’t bother me as this will be worn mostly around the house/yard in the cooler weather.

I am 6 rounds into 13 for the gray, then it will be several rounds of a rib edge.

Friday morning will be all about turning the heel on my second sock for the Marly Bird KAL.

Have a great week/weekend!

    You’re making good progress. I admire how you’re planting and working away in your garden. I’m slowly coming back to knitting, trying to do a little here and there in the car.

    I like your gray better than the navy. I have lots of yard work to do still. It’s already getting into the 90’s here…..too hot! Enjoy your outdoor activities and congrats on your socks!

    I agree with you, the grey is nicer. I can manage socks but I am a bit intimidated by other bigger/trickier knitting projects. I need to branch out a bit.

        Oh yes, I was hugely intimidated too for a long time. But also determined to learn. I like crochet better because it grows more quickly and I’m much more confident with it. Knitting in general is more of a challenge!!
