Working It Wednesday 11/30/2016

This week I finished the Harry Potter Mixer tube socks.  Next blog post, I give you a simple pattern for the tube socks that I knit.

And I am still working on the cowl-1 or 2 more rows and I'll be binding off on this one.

The Christmas Sock out of my You'll Shoot Your Eye Out is still coming along nicely, working on the heel flap.  I'll get this turned today and then it'll be back to mindless knitting until I get to the toe.

I am planning a pair of socks as soon as I'm done with the Christmas socks, and maybe a shawl or a sweater.

So, what are you working on this week?

Workin It Wednesday November 23, 2016

Blowing the dust off of the blog, yet again.  My goal is to have a fresh blog for you, my gentle reader at least once a week so that you can see what's up in the Land of Brazen.  Today's blog is focusing on Work It Wednesday.

Right now, I am working on 3 projects.  I have an 'at work' project and 2 just regular take along projects.

For my at work project, I am knitting a companion sock to the sock I made last week.  This is what I knit on while in lulls at work.

The other project that I'm working on is a quick tube sock.  I'm working from a Harry Potter pack that I had at Kid N Ewe.  I cast on 64 on size 0 needles, did a K3/P1 ribbing until I got tired of ribbing and am knitting until I run out of yarn.

And, I'm still working on this cowl that is a Nerd Girl Yarns Dr Who Club color way.  I basically just cast on 88 at and am knitting in a K3/P1 ribbing(my favorite kind of ribbing) until it's long enough.  I like to have the fabric be 10 inches long so that it can be a convertible kind of cowl.

Once I finish 2 of these projects, I am gonna start something maybe shawl or sweater like project.

So, what's on your needles?
