Wild Weekend WIPs

I've made mojos before, for the first sock swap and I loved them so much I swore I'd make myself a pair, eventually.

So, here we are, a pair of mojo socks for me, in Socks That Rock Lightweight, colourway "My Wild Irish Girlie". Love the colours in this sock and it's too wild to be in a sock with intricate lace or cable patterns, so I think mojo suits it just fine.

The rest of my wips (argo and dh's crazy mittens) haven't changed at all in the last week... maybe I'll have more to report in a week's time (especially since I'm almost done with my intro to the thesis and will have a lot of free time on my hands!).

Ah yes, I remember the calcetines champiƱones, & I'm glad to see you decided to take your WIP pic of the mojos on your foot…to avoid what they look like off. ;)

haha! I considered it... but Kyle is already giving me side glances, wondering if I've lost it if I think that a sock that looks like that will be comfortable... but they really are!

Those colors are gorgeous! :) I may have to try that pattern.

hahaha. & I believe you that they're comfy! I do plan on making some myself at some point…there're just so many things to knit!
