Winter Workoff Results

The Day of the Winter Workoff WIP has arrived!

I started out my day doing my standard chores following the knitter’s method. My friends think this method is hilarious but I suspect a few of you follow this same method!

The method: Knit two rows, do a chore, knit two rows, do a chore, knit two rows, do a chore….etc. etc. until all chores are completed. I keep pointing out to my friends that I do not knit just anything whilst doing chores – I ONLY knit dishcloths!

So, the day of the challenge began as normal for me. I finished my “Flipper File Chore Chart” and one Ballband Dishcloth almost simultaneously. One more dishcloth for the dishcloth drawer and a pretty clean house which gave me “permission” to tackle my other WIP.

Challenge # 1 Completed

Shortly after lunch, I picked up my SOCKS THAT ROCK socks that have been tucked away in a knitting bag for several weeks patiently waiting for a toe. I love this yarn! This yarn was gifted to me by Brenda, my One Skein spoiler.

I discovered that they actually needed more than a toe – they needed added length in addition to a toe.

Challenge #2 – Completed


The pattern: Simply Spendid Socks
Pattern source: Lucy Neatby’s Cool Socks, Warm Feet
Needle Size: 2.5mm Addi Natura
Yarn: Socks That Rock in Farmhouse colorway

Challenge #3 – Postponed

I think that this will be it for my challenge day. When I decided on the WIP that I would complete today, I forgot that I would be out tonight and not able to knit.

I really like this idea of working on projects that need just a little shove to being finished. I just might have to make Wednesday’s a weekly WIP Workout!

  1. I thought I was the only one who did the knitter’s method of chores! I have always done that – rewarding myself with knitting! Good job on the WIPs!

  2. Both very pretty and I know it feels good to put a check mark next to those two!

  3. Love your sock! Good job getting the house cleaned and the WIP’s finished!

  4. I’m so jealous 😦

    Ah, well… soon! (And I will NOT forget my knitting this vacation…)

  5. I “bribe” myself with knitting, too. It’s a great reward. Pretty sock — bonus! I really like the WIP Wednesday workout idea.

  6. Good job! I was hoping to get my project done yesterday, too, but today will have to do.

  7. I set the timer!! 30 minutes of chores, 45 minutes of fibery-goodness, whether weaving or knitting…

    Love it! Your blog has been fabulous…I’m in a blog slump. Sigh.
