WIP Thursday

I was in the frog pond yesterday so I didn't get the post up in a timely fashion.  No, not an actual pond with frogs in it.  It was the taking knitting apart kind of frogging.  Here's what happened with last week's things:

Tour de Sock #1:  Swatch complete.  I will be using size 00 needles.  I am not happy about this, but the new carbon fiber needles may make it less unpleasant.

Zombie Kitty socks:  done.  That's all I have to say about them.

Yarnia blanket:  caught up.  No pictures of the new squares yet because they are sitting under the Zombie Kitty socks and I'm ignoring them.  The socks, not the squares.

Harley sweater:  I started working on it.  It turned out that I was not where I thought I was in the pattern.  This is what happens when something goes into hibernation suddenly and you don't write down where you were at.  I spent more than a few hours frogging and counting.  I'm about ready to restart.  I think I did two sets of increases where I should've only done one.  D'oh.

Protest is Patriotic shawlette:  I did start it and maybe I'll take a picture next week.  The one think I would recommend to anyone making it is to go stash diving for the blue.  It doesn't take that much, maybe 30 or 40 yards.

Unless you are someone who really doesn't buy blue yarn...I do want to make I can see wearing it on many occasions....
