“WIP” is another crafting term for “Work in Progress”. I’m making another pair of socks! I’ve had the yarn for quite a while, but I haven’t gotten around to making them. This will be my fifth pair of socks. I’m loving the way this sock is coming out, so far anyhow!
It’s just a plain sock, no fancy stitches, or anything to slow me down. But the yarn makes up for the plainness of the sock. I think I’ll have to buy something to go along with theses socks, because I can’t think of anything in my closet that matches any of these colors.
I’ve discovered that I’m a much faster knitter. Somewhere along the way, I’ve sped up, and didn’t even realize it. That’s a great realization!
I don’t have many knitting blogs that I read, but one thing that has always impressed me about the ones I do read is their yarn stashes. They’ll post a picture with yarn enough for 30 pairs of socks or more, and then talk about buying more yarn. I don’t have a stash yet, at least, not much of one. There are a few odd balls of yarn lurking in my sewing room closet. Sock yarn isn’t usually cheap, either. You can spend over $20 for a pair of socks! I haven’t spent that much…yet…but I guarantee you, if I did, I wouldn’t stash it! I’d at least start a project with it. It may be over a year before it’s done, but hey it’s not technically in a “stash” being unused, right? =)
