FO Friday

It has been more than a week since most of these were finished.

WIP Wednesday

I keep getting distracted.  Clouds are blowing over the almost-full moon and it is fascinating to watch.

There's only one thing actually in progress and it is too early in the process for a picture.  It is the January Knit from Stash sock, Feldspar.  The 2017 theme is stonework.  The textures remind me of some fancy carved stone.  I think I'm going to like this theme.

Done but not yet photographed are 4 Pussyhats, 2 pair of socks, and a partridge in a pear tree Doctor Who charm bracelet.  That last one is metal, not fiber, but was fun to assemble.

I abandoned the mystery knitalong sock.  I know that I'm getting a bit spacey in my old age, but this pattern had to have been part of the problem.  I simply could not get the stitch counts to turn out correctly.  I tried a half a dozen different times and used two different sizes.  There are so many patterns available to me, I refuse to spend any more time on one that I could not make work.  That means there is something new in my stash:
I'm running out of space in my pink buckets.

My Leftie scarf is waiting for me to finish it.

I'm finishing up the last sock in Knit From Stash 2016:
It has an interesting stretchy texture which I am attempting to show here.  Half a sock to go.

I bought the patterns for Knit From Stash 2017.  How can I be behind when it is only 1-4?  I'm working on one of the two patterns I've received already:
It will look a whole lot better when it is blocked (and someone takes a better picture).

Waiting in the wings is the second KFS17 sock.  Also the restart of General Hogbuffer's  Slippery Slope Socks.  I'm starting Knitters Brewing Company's Crazy Quilt mystery sock just as soon as the yarn arrives.

On hold is the Leftie shawl/scarf thingy and at least one more Pussyhat.
