You win some you lose some

OK, so the October WIP War isn't going the absolute best.

On the win side I have finished Corey's Inca socks:
Plus I frogged off Jess's purple socks (but in reality I had only done about 2 rounds lol).

Plus I finished one sock of the Monkey - but they won't fit me so they are hibernating until I figure who to gift them too, I might have to rip back a pattern repeat on the foot if I 'm going to give them to Mum.

BUT I added to my list by whipping up a Calorimetry last week - this yarn is sitting there looking at me all the time and I had to make something out of it or it would continue taunting me. And I bought a whole heap of cotton blend yarn from my spotlight's relocation sale, so had to knit some up to see what it was like, so I did a tikki Rainbow Dress. I absolutely adore this, the pattern, the colours, the yarn.....I wish I had done it in a size to fit my girls, but I did it in 3month size.

Plus I got in the main some wool that a friend has been trying to send me to knit some longies for her since she was pregnant with her second boy (who is now 6 months old), so I'm over halfway through one pair and just started the other - although I will have to frog the second pair because I somehow miscounted my caston and totally flamingoed it up.

So my list is now:


  • Monkey Socks
  • Crossover Top/Tunic
  • 2 Washcloths for PIF
  • River's Longies
  • Silas's Longies


  • Grab Bag
  • Messenger Bag
  • Tag Toy
  • Lengthen PJ top
  • PJs
  • Fixings
  • Tassles
  • Felt Dog
  • Felt Cupcake

I have so much I want to caston - I just need to learn to knit faster I think LOL.
