WIP Wednesday: Spinner’s Knee!

What’s that creaky sound? Oh, it’s just my knees. I’ve been doing a lot of “I’m nearly there!” spinning the last few days, racing through the singles and plying with purpose, somewhat defeating my intention of having a spinning wheel to quietly relax in the dark evenings while snow falls gently outside (yes, that’s the image I had in my head). I don’t mind though because I find spinning incredibly satisfying, and I’m excited that I nearly have this project complete!

Getting there!

I do have a finished object this week though- my watermelon socks are done! Even though it’s just my old standard afterthought heel sock recipe, I still love having a new pair of socks done. I’m posting all these on Instagram under #operationsockdrawer. Operation sock drawer does what it says on the tin-it’s all about filling your sock drawer with beautiful (and warm!) hand knit socks and sharing your photos with other sock knitters!

On a side note to the sock knitting, I wanted to mention the citric acid fix posted by Jasmin of the Knitmore Girls Podcast. This is a method to easily fix any yarn which is still bleeding dye. It can also be used as a preventative measure on your hand knits just in case. I picked up some citric acid yesterday to give it a go, so I’ll let you know how it turns out.

This is turning into more of an FO post than a WIP post, but that’s because I don’t want to post Xmas gift spoilers :) I do have one last FO to share though, and that’s the quilted notions purse I talked about making last week.

My sewing skills leave a bit of accuracy to be desired, but I love it and it’s so simple to make. Those colours make me smile :) I’ll be posting a tutorial up soon so you can make your own.

What do you have going on your needles/spindles at the moment? I’d love to hear! Leave a comment in the thread below.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
