I do not usually do WIP Wednesday posts because small projects like socks don't look att that different between being WIPs and being finished, so I tend to save the suprise for a big reveal at the end.
Today however I have an ongoing project that I can talk about- Two at a time socks, yeah baby! (Sorry Austin Powers moment there)
In an attempt to get the festive season under control I have started the Christmas socks and it seemed like a good opportunity to try out two at a time (TAAT) magic loop style.
I have magic looped socks before, and generally prefer dpns. This is a first for TAAT though, and so far it is going well. It is a thick yarn so quick to make, meaning I should not get bored that it is taking twice as long. I suspect the final tada moment will be good when I realise that I don't need to start a second sock.
I have also added a WIP widget to the blog, I was just looking through Ravelry and spotted it so thought I would give it a go. I need to take more WIP photos though.
In computer news it is still playing up, but I have found a way round it that lets me post on the blog. More seriously yesterday it would not let me buy yarn! That being the final straw I whinged about it until my OH looked into it (He is much more computer minded). There verdict is that it is an issue with java and I will have to wait until the computer wizards fix it. That is one way to stick to a yarn diet!
