WIP Wednesday: Irresistible Socks & Dancing Sheep

As I mentioned on my blog earlier this week, I was able to snag the third-to-last limited-edition colorway in Bijou Basin Ranch's Tibetan Dream sock yarn which was hand-dyed by Miss Babs. Even though I'm test knitting a sweater, participating in the Chill Chaser KAL and also doing the FreshStitches Mystery CAL this month, I have thrown all caution to the wind and cast on for another pair of Wedge socks by Cookie A with my pretty new sock yarn:


This pattern is really fun to knit, and it's absolutely perfect for variegated yarns. The first pair I made ended up being a bit large, so Tyler ended up being the lucky recipient of the finished socks. Though I didn't keep detailed project notes in my Ravelry notebook, I was able to find the pattern I'd copied for knitting-on-the-go, which had all of my handwritten notes on it. I'll be making the next size down so that I'm assured these socks will fit my feet this time around! 

I printed out the second clue for the Mystery CAL on Monday, but I probably won't get to it til later this week since I'm working on a top-secret project for my nephew's upcoming birthday. However, I have made some progress on my Chill Chaser, this week - though it's not very exciting to look at, I do have 12 inches of stockinette under my belt:


If you're thinking of joining the Chill Chaser KAL, there is a fun new video to help you pick your colors which was animated by my husband Tyler (and it features an instrumental version of a Shalloboi song!):
