WIP Wednesday 4 (it's about time!)

So it has been a super long time since I've been able to post here, but luckily I'm on spring break this week and I have some time to blog!

As for WIPs I only have one. I am working on some spiral rib legwarmers for my friend. They are coming along nicely but I'm not enjoying the knitting as much as I would like. The pattern requires me to count rows and pay attention and so that makes it hard for me to knit while watching tv. I am using cascade 220 in a charcoal grey color and I am almost done the first legwarmer. I plan to finish them over the rest of my break since my friend has been waiting a long time for these (woops).

Here are some pictures:

The top picture makes it look like the legwarmer is wide at the bottom and decreasing in size towards the top but I think that's just from trying on. The bottom picture attempts to show a close up of the pattern. Another thing slowing me down on these is the fact that I have to use DPNs. It is good for me to be learning and I enjoy learning the technique, but it is much slower than using circulars.

That's all for now, check out Tami's blog for more WIPs!!

Spring Break!

Only one more class today and I am on spring break! I am looking forward to relaxing, getting some work done, and knitting! Not sure what I want to knit though. Maybe I'll knit a hat for when I go skiing next weekend or maybe I'll knit a scarf with some of my Christmas yarn... or maybe I'll do both! :D
