Oh Bother

I have done it again – started a couple of new projects (one knitting and one cross-stitching) rather than work on one of my many WIPs. The first project I started; completed about 2 dozen stitches on and then put away; was Summer Banner which is one of the projects that I have on my list to work on in July so starting it was not too bad but I should really have progressed one of my WIPs from the July project list first.

Then this morning while getting ready for the commute to work I realised that I did not have a project in my handbag for the train journey to work. So I grabbed a ball of sock yarn & some 2.5mm needles and have cast-on for a pair of basic ribbed socks. Oh well these will now be the project that I carry around in my handbag and I will try to not work on them at home.

Pattern: Basic Ribbed Socks by WiseHilda
Yarn: Regia Sock Monster
Started: 15th July 2010

This is a pattern that I have knitted up before and should be a relatively quick knit. Maybe I should put away all my WIPs and only work on 2 or 3 for the rest of the month.

I totally get having several WIPs going! There are too many lovely designs, both cross-stitch & knitting, to limit oneself to just one project at a time. LOL!

I do love the color of the yarn you're using. And it looks very pretty as simple ribbed socks. Can't wait to see more!
