WIP Wednesday – it’s the yarn that goes on and on my friend…

More of the never ending story round these parts I’m afraid! Working two fingering weight yarn projects is not exactly prime for progress shots, ha!
The good news is I’m on the home stretch for both my spring socks and the custom stripes. Now if I could only buckle down and be monogamous to one of these projects, id be golden! How to choose…how to choose

My spring socks are still making me smile, and are the ideal ‘sitting outside supervising three kids and trying to avoid a sunburn’ project.

I’ve done the second heel and gone a few inches down the foot since my last spring sock update.

As much as I love TAAT socks, I do miss how much more quickly you see progress on only one!

I was going gang busters on stripes this weekend. I blasted through right up to the keyhole row

…Where I got to the part about a double YO which you knit into once while dropping the second yo to create the keyhole to thread the tail into. It just…doesn’t seem big enough to me. I’m worried there will be too much pressure and the yarn will snap. I hate when I doubt the pattern!

I’ve been tossing around different ideas on how to make a larger keyhole. Help?

Aldo distracting me this week? Netflix. it has fresh prince of bel-air. I can’t be held responsible for the pile O’ dishes and laundry when I need to revisit my youth! That’s in humane!

…Someone feed the kids, k?

  1. If you do not like the double yo, why not do a k2tog then a yo to create a hole? might be sturdier. or a one stitch button hole? Good luck, love the color!!

  2. I love seeing other knitters’ 2-at-a-time sock knitting projects! It’s by far my favorite way to knit socks. The shawl is lovely too! The blue stripes really stand out against that gray. Great color combo! Happy knitting!

  3. The socks are so pretty and spring-like! I agree with Karen – that should give you a larger hole that won’t stress the yarn too much. It looks great so far.
