WIP Wednesday: Bridging the Gap

Fey Led: Still edits, but progress.

I finished a quick commission and got ready to cast on for the Balmoral Bonnet I’d been looking forward to. The yarn is 100% alpaca and I was dreaming of that lovely softness slipping through my fingers as I knit it up.

I got this far before I realized I didn’t have the measurements I needed. With time running short (we had to leave to go to gaming) and my stash in upheaval from a recent emergency move, I grabbed a random skein and cast on for what I’d earmarked it for. During gaming I got most of the cuff of Pomatomus socks before really checking the numbers again. If I had another skein back home I was good, plenty for the pair. Once home though I rummaged around and finally decided that no, I just had the one. So back to the start we go.

I think it’ll become a pair of Twisted Socks. Maybe.


Reading Lolita in Terhan by Azar Nafisi. I actually got a bit read while in a waiting room the other day so it’s progressing.

    Oh, no. Disaster. I hate when yarn shortages occur.

    I always seem to have too much, or not enough, of the yarns I want to use. Just how does that happen? I guess when you buy without an idea in mind. LOL! Lovely yarns, they will eventually grow up into something wonderful.
