WIPs & FOs: Spud & Chloe Popsicle Socks, First sock knitted!

WIPs & FOsJean ChungComment

There's only one WIP that I am currently working on these days and that is these Popsicle Socks.

I just cast off the first sock on Sunday afternoon, but haven't had a chance to cast on the second sock yet. These days, all of my time is spent on sewing! (more on that coming tomorrow)

Popsicle Sock pattern is still on sale - Use the discount code: Stripey when checking it out on Ravelry. It's a $9 pattern, and you get 50% off so it's a REALLY good deal.

The sock has good memory, and has very different texture from all the other socks I have in my sock drawer. It's not cashmere-soft, but it's not scratchy at all, it's stretchy, and warm, but not TOO warm. I am probably going to start the second sock tonight and slowly finish it over the next few weeks.

I'm glad I got at least the first sock done this week. Things at home are getting very exciting and busy. Figuring that I could still knit with a newborn baby (hello, babywearing!) but not sew that easily, I have been sewing at least 3~4 projects per week since D-21. This is also a way for me to ensure I have stuff to share with you guys after the baby is born. I still want this space to be sewing & knitting/fiber arts space, not a personal/motherhood blog!
