Sometimes when you’ve had a WIP (work in progress) for so long, you either decide you no longer love it or you’ve lost your place in the pattern. This is the case for my dear Cable Lagoon socks.
Last night I was very frustrated to the point the my husband actually told me to “frog it” – yes ladies, he does know his knitting terminology. After 6 months of being on the needles, I managed to lose my place in the pattern and could not quite figure out where I was. To top it off, I was no longer “in love” with the pattern. So, I took the husband’s advice and “frogged my project”. Rest in peace my dear Cable Lagoon socks!
Now I love my fingering weight yarn, which is a skein of Liberty’s Yarn Sockenstein (100% Merino at 420 yards) in the colorway Lilac. By the way, I get to practice close up shots with all of you as I’ve just signed up for a new Craftsy class, Shoot It! with Caro Sheridan.
I’m now searching for a pattern that just says “I’m the one”. I have found the following that to me are all very simple, easy knits and give me one thing I want, cuff down.
- Jules designed by fellow blogger Kate Blackburn of Confessions of a Graveyard Gypsy
- Potluck Supersock designed by Cheryl Potter of Cherry Tree Hill
- Hermione’s Everyday Socks designed by Erica Lueder of Dreams of Fiber
- Jekyll & Hyde Socks designed by Sarah Wilson of The Sexy Knitter
- A Nice Ribbed Sock by fellow blogger Glenna C of Knitting to Stay Sane
- Sleepy Hollow Socks by Lori Law of Ennea Collective
- Whisper Rib & Shepherd’s Lace Socks by Anne Carroll Gilmour of Wild West Woolies
I’m having a hard time deciding and asking for help. So, if you had this particular skein of yarn, which pattern above would you choose?
