I was going to call this "back to normal", but this has been a transformative year and what was a normal level of busy last year seems a bit leisurely now. Right now I'm happy to focus on something other than work at 10 o'clock at night.
A few weeks ago Oogy posted pictures of her Wingspan projects, and as is often the case, I did not hesitate to follow her example and made my own. She is my project guru.
I began with a few sock blanks from Knit Picks.
Which I dyed to varying degrees of intensity with the color Wedgewood from Prochem dyes.
I got impatient and scrapped my original plan to make the husband stand over the stove holding the sock blanks and lowering them slowly with exact timing. I did this instead.
By the time I had lowered both blanks into the bath, the dye was mostly used.
The color progression was not perfect, but I was OK with that.
With the dyeing finished, I was very eager to begin knitting.
The variations of Wingspan that most impressed me were ones with gradual color progression, so I was hoping to achieve that with the wedgewood-dyed wool. It sorta worked...
This pattern is very good for semi-mindless knitting. It's all garter stitch, with markers doing all the counting work. Just when it gets boring, it's time to begin a new wedge. I can see doing this again.
