Froggy frog

My work in progress pile is a little out of control at the minute, so working on it by finishing or frogging something before each new project.
These socks are pretty, but I started them so long ago that my gauge will be way off, so frog it is.

Variegated yarn

It can be tricky to work with, you never quite know how it will knit up. Sometimes, out of nowhere you get stripes.

Bullet journal

Having a go at the bullet journal with the playful day podcast. It is like the mother of all to do lists and I do enjoy a good to do list.
Of course a new notebook was needed.

Finished yarn

I wanted to get this finished over the weekend, so spent quite a bit of Saturday working on the final ply.
The last bit of single took some time on Sunday morning but I figured it would be ok to ply it that evening.
There's about 140g in a heavy sock weight, so plenty for the shawl I am hoping to make. It was going to go with the dress in the background but I am not sure if it will look too heathered.
