Through nothingbutknit blog, I came across WIP wednesdays hosted by tami’s amis. I though it was a great idea to get me into routinely posting and to see what other people are up to!

If I were to share all my WIPs (Work In Progress), I would be typing for a while. It can get into embarrassing proportions.

Today, I will share only one project and see how it goes. After all, this is my first WIPW!

Couple of weeks ago, I went deep stash diving. I needed a small portable project on my needles. I found 2 skeins of Claudia Hand Painted Fingering. With only 175 yards to a 50 grams skein, it is more of a sport weight than fingering. Ever since the Java socks pattern came up on Knitty.com, I wanted to knit a pair. I never had the right yarn for it.

Because of the limited yardage, I made relatively short leg – only about 4.5 inches. I kept my fingers crossed to have enough yarn for my long feet. One sock is done and I have little bit yarn left over from the first ball. Onto the sock number two.

I know people commented on going nuts from all the tiny cables. I use cabling without the cable needle method and it is manageable. Maybe not as mindless as one would wish, but it is doable even while watching TV. (If you really don’t care too much what is on TV.)

Now, check out what others are working on over at tami’s amis!

    hi! welcome to WIPW 🙂 I love the blue yarn for that sock. I have yet to knit with Claudia’ Hand Painted yarns and every time I see a project knit in it I remind myself that I need to pick up a skein or two or three.

      Thank you Amy! I fell in love with that color as well. And it goes well with jeans. 🙂 I am a bit skeptical about durability, since it has no nylon. It is 100% merino.
