WIP Week - Day 3

Forgive the somewhat gloomy photos today - it was before 7am when I took them and the sun hadn't made much of an appearance. Anyway, this is what I managed to knit on the ripply blanket. Not a great deal really and I'm a bit disappointed with how much got done. Life got in the way yesterday. But I wouldn't let myself do any more of it today - no, the whole idea of the WIP week is that I do a different thing every day.

I finally decided what to do today.

It had to happen at some stage didn't it? The Ensnared Sock. This really is not a fun knit. It is a chore. All the ribbing and the knitting into the back of the stitches. I'm not even very sure I like it much.

Don't get me wrong, the yarn is gorgeous - fabulous colours (yes I know it doesn't show up on here, but honest, they are fabulous). But I think I prefer the more traditional heel gusset rather than the 'clever shaping'.

As to what to do tomorrow, I'm really torn. Some new yarn arrived from Posh Yarn for the Golden Wedding Blanket and it's perfect, so naturally I want to do that. But I think I'll have more time to knit on Saturday, so it might be better doing it then. But I think I know what to do instead... just come back tomorrow to see how much Ensnared gets done and see what I chose to knit.

If you're interested of course!

Oh, you're so disciplined! I've had high hopes for crafting this week but tvery evening I have felt so exhausted I've just vegged in from of the gogglebox. I've fallen asleep on the sofa twice!

You're doing very well! But why knit Ensnared if it's so frustrating???? Lucy xxx
