Can you believe another week is over? It's almost the middle of June - which here means that Birthday Season is about to begin. Kristofer turns 6 on Sunday, our twin nephews (Ben and Jake) are 5 next week, then I am *whispers* 31 at the very beginning of July. My older sister has a birthday just 3 days after mine and Robbie turns 8 right at the end of July - it's crazy hectic!!! Thankfully I decided to not do birthday knits; I'm loving focusing on some selfish knitting at the moment to be honest. So that leads to my WIP Wednesday........
I've made just a tiny bit of progress on my Sea Turtle socks - why? Because I got super frustrated with the charts - the only charts I've used in my knitting thus far was for OWLs and that is easy to follow. However I have asked on Ravelry (where someone always knows!!) and I know what I'm doing now. These are a knit that I tend to only do when the boys are at school or in bed - it's just a weeny bit too complicated for a simple knit:Hogwarts Express shawl - I loved my first one so much but it wasn't perfect and I decided that the colours in my Zauberball were perfect. So I've cast on with a slightly larger needle to get a nice airy feeling; then I'll go down a 0.5 needle size for the owls and back up to finish off - theoretically it should work but I will be using lifelines just incase!!! It's also a really simple knit, for just watching TV with or knitting while I'm out.
Tami and Ginny - go stop by their blogs to play along too!!!
