WIP Wednesday: 2 FOs and Blanket Progress!

Happy Wednesday!

Feeling like I've been quite productive on the crafting front recently! It's been nice to get some of those WIPs off the needles and onto the finished pile. Although there are plenty more WIPs where they came from! I can't seem to help but have a few projects here and there to flit between :-)

So, what are these finished items? SOCKS!

First were these simple ribbed pink ones...

These were a simple project which kept me going through all my essay and dissertation writing - seems fitting that they got finished just as I finished university. I think these will forever hold a special significance because of it :-)

Next were these Rose City Rollers by Mara Catherine Bryner...

 Yes, I know I only have one sock-modelling pose!! 

I loved  knitting these! Is it possible to have a crush on a sock pattern? :-P
They were quick, they were easy, and they are oh so comfy to wear! I love ankle socks, but they don't always stay on my feet nicely, but these ones do! I can definitely see myself making more of these in the future :-)

The next WIP to try and finish is my pink charity blanket. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you'll realise I've been working on it for quite a while!

I'm about 4 rows in, and still only on the first ball of grey! I bought quite a bit of grey, so I can see myself having more than enough for some borders.

It's moving quite slowly, slower than join as you go squares (but then again, there are more sides!). Luckily, Wimbledon is on and keeping me amused! :-)

As always, full project information can be found on Ravelry.


  1. Great progress on the blanket! I love the grey with all the different pinks :) Speaking of pink, I love those pink socks! Definitely super fun :) And I love the stripes in the Rose City Rollers!

  2. Looking good! Love the socks...very pretty!

  3. Brilliant FOs!! II love that those fantastic pink socks will always have a positive memory related to them.

  4. What a beautiful blanket! The variety of pink shades and the soft grey combo is just wonderful.
    Your socks are great too! Nothing is more relaxing than knitting a good old pair of socks!

    1. Thank you! I'm so please with how well the colours in the blanket are playing together :-) And I totally agree - I'm already planning my next pair of socks!!

  5. Your socks rock! Oh that charity blanket is looking gorgeous already! I have got a big admiration for people knitting / crocheting blankets, I would not have the patience for that!

    1. Thank you!!
      I'm not sure I'd have the patience either - I tend to work on other projects alongside it, so that I can work on something else if I get bored!!

  6. love the socks, and I've bene admiring your pink and grey blanket, it's so pretty.


Thanks for stopping by!
