Crafty Monday: WIPS

Craft

I just thought I’d post really quickly on the projects I’m currently working on. The first are the heel flap basic socks from “Socks from the toe up” by Wendy Johnson. I’m knitting these with the last of that ghastly Knit Picks yarn I bought, originally, for a Clapotis. If you’ve read my knitting blog, Black Sheep you might remember that disaster. :shudder: I bought something like 4 or 5 hanks of this yarn and it’s been sitting in my stash for 4 years. So I thought I’d use it for these simple socks. And you know what? I’m not hating the colorway so much. It seems to work better for socks than for shawls.

I’m also working on the Zick Zack Tunic (designed by the fabulous Neoknits) from the Spring ’09 IK. I’m using Misti Alpaca Laceweight. And here’s a macro shot of what I have started (since it isn’t much):
