Good morning!

This was a “I want to knit ALL OF IT” kind if week for me. I currently have 4 WIPS on the go that I am paying attention to… And there is a reason for this… Nerd Wars (on ravelry) started last Sunday! I have submitted two projects this week… The baby sweaters I finished last Sunday ( there is one challenge that you are allowed to have started it before the start day of the competition). And the a pair of minion slippers for my younger son! That are pretty Stinkin’ cute! See?

I have two projects left to go (both of which I think I now what I am doing, but still not 100% sure). As well as a charitable challenge of some kind… Which I will fulfill today at the “walk now for Autism Speaks” walk in downtown Toronto. And the dissertation… The project that can be done over three the months of the Nerd Wars competition.

I will like be submitting a proposal that I do two pairs of socks. Two TOP DOWN socks with a heel flap. In the past,I have only done toe up socks with short row heels. So these two pairs of socks are to take me out of my comfort zone in many ways.

Because when you submit a dissertation, you have to show photos of swatches of your planned project, I found out that you can submit cuffs of socks as swatches. So I got around to doing these swatches/cuffs this week.

I will use the same pattern for both socks – the Vanilla Latte sock pattern on Ravelry. They are top down with heel flap 🙂

Other than that… There is not much else to report…. Other than I am thinking that my YoPyr4 list for me will will consist of 3 to 5 pairs of socks… 15 or so pairs of slippers, a sweater for myself, sweaters for my nieces, zombie squirrels for my sons, charting a design for simple beanies for the folks at my sons’ TaeKwonDo school, plus many last minute add ons I am sure.

Have fun, be safe and keep knitting and crocheting this week.

  1. I love your minion slippers, what a great christmas gift they would make, pretty rainbow coloured socks too.

    I’m really looking forward to joining all you Yoppers in year 4, there are so many things I want to knit.

  2. The minion slippers are awesome. And speaking of awesome howabout that neon rainbow yarn for the first pair of socks! Good luck making two pairs of Vanilla Lattes … it’s a very sensible pattern but terribly boring to knit!
