An alternative title for this post could be “Procrastiknitting”. After I went through all that trouble of making my Year of Projects list yesterday, what did I cast on today?

A washcloth! I haven’t knit a washcloth in years, but I needed something portable and simple to bring to work today and none of my current WIPs fall into either of those categories, unfortunately. Are washcloths on the list? Nope! Hence, procrastiknitting. * shakes head at silly self *

At least my Color Affection shawl is progressing steadily. I estimate that I am about 70% done with the short row section. I can’t wait to wear this thing! Lately I’ve been wearing outfits that would coordinate with it so nicely, it’s such a tease.

The sock for my next design in the series inspired by How I Met Your Mother characters (this one is Marshall’s) is still pooling crazily and I decided that I love it. 🙂 We’ll see how I feel about it when I get to the foot, which will involve more patterning than the simple rib you see here. I’m excited to get the rest of the heel pattern worked out soon, too. Can you guess what it will look like?
No picture today, folks, I left the sock in the car and it’s too dark out for photos now. I’ve turned the heel and am on the gusset of my Lillypad socks but I have alarming news: the sock might be too small for me. I know! The horror! I never try my socks on until I’m past the heel. This might sound crazy (there is a lot of sock to knit before that point, after all) but I find I don’t get an accurate feel for the fit until I reach the gusset. And well, this one’s feeling pretty snug… so I’ll have to think about things a bit before proceeding. Sigh.
Anyway, that’s all I can manage today, I’ve got a job application to write! Happy WIP Wednesday, all!
