WIP Wednesday


For reasons I cannot entirely explain I have completely ignored both pairs of socks currently on needles, and have instead been crocheting necklaces and collars. Well actually there's an August deadline for these, so that's one compelling reason. And they're very quick to start and finish, so that's a second reason.

Shown is Daniela Herbertz's Doodle-Noodle-Necklace, which I'm crocheting in a shell pink Rowan 4 ply cotton. This single ball of cotton was leftover from the very first pair of socks I ever made and seemed like the perfect yarn for this necklace. It's so much nicer to crochet with than yesterday's Diamond Superfine Egyptian cotton - far less splitty.

Tomorrow I plan to crochet a Wild Irish Rose Necklace and finish a beaded necklace that I've started. My plan is to have them all in the mail by early next week. Then maybe I'll get back to socks!

Sometimes you just need to ignore your current WIP and make something else, right? Very pretty work :)

It's nice to work on small instant-gratification projects sometimes. That shell pink one is lovely.

A quick and and absolutely stunning project is the most rewarding!

They are very pretty and they are for a good cause. These are more important than socks right now.

They are all very pretty !I'm sure Kristen's mom will love them .

There's nothing like a deadline to keep a body focused .

I think when you know what you are knitting is for a "cause", it makes it come to the forefront of projects.

Sometimes it's nice to switch around, I do that often so totally relate to what you're up to.
