WIP Wednesday: Inspired to make 'All The Things'

So this week, I find myself wanting to make All The Things. Little Miss' socks are finished (they just need her feet to come home from school for photos which I'll post on the weekend) and no sooner were they off the needles but a lovely new sock design popped up in my Instagram feed. I had to have it, because no matter how many other things you *should* be doing, there is always room for a pair of socks, right?

The pattern is Whiz Bang by Sarah Shoo and it looks perfect for highly variegated yarn which has been in my stash for a few years now without a pattern - Spectrum by Natalie Fergie / The Yarn Yard.

You may also note there is also some FABRIC! It's been on the cards for a while, but I finally got some fabric for a very simple "sewing" project. I have no pattern (and not much sewing experience) and will be 'winging it' based on a Creativebug class called "Trace a Tshirt, Create a Wardrobe" - I'm hoping to get onto that tomorrow, and I'll give you an update in my next post - wish me luck!

  1. ooo thanks for linking to that pattern, I rather fancy making it for my next pair of socks and I've got just the right yarn for it already wound too :-)

    Love the yarn you're using, all those colours!

    1. Yes! It's so nice to finally have something which works well - I have knit Hermione's Everyday Socks a few times now, so this is a good alternative.

    1. It's gorgeous! I am really enjoying it and imagine it will become my go-to pattern for variegated yarns. Hope you enjoy it too!

  4. squee! those do look like some fun socks and i always love good patterns for crazy multi sock yarn! which i can never resist bringing home.

    also, thanks for having a little ad for my pattern drafting class up there, which was a funny surprise i noted just as i read that you are going to do the t-shirt class, which is a fun gateway to clothes-making, and then you should check out some of mine! ;n) pattern drafting (my way at least) isn't nearly as hard as people think, and allows you to make whatever you dream up...

    anyhoo, have fun!

    1. Oh yes, thanks Cal - that's my next venture!!!! I think the t-shirt class is the perfect starting point too - I have my t-shirt and fabric ready... now just getting the courage to cut! :D
