A pair of socks on double-pointed needles.  The yarn is blue flecked with yellow, white, and pink.It's a new WIP this week for WIP Wed!  These are the Ice Cream Sundae Socks, and they're slated as the 3rd Quarter pattern release for my Pattern Muses over on Patreon!  (Don't worry, they'll be available to the general public, Pattern Muses just get to have input on the pattern design process!)

Honestly, I'm not 100% sold on the name.  I originally planned these in a different yarn, and when I switched, the name didn't make sense. So, I settled on Ice Cream Sundae, partially because of the yarn, and partially because of the stitch pattern.   If you've got an opinion on the name, please, hop over to Patreon and voice it as one of my Pattern Muses!

So, the yarn I'm using is an Eat.Sleep.Knit exclusive from last year's Yarnathon -- Queen Frostline Sundae on *Blue Moon Fiber Arts Super Sparkle.  I was quite worried about how it would pool, but it's working up quite well, I think!

Close up of a knitted sock in progress.  The yarn is blue, flecked with pink, yellow, and white.  The stitch pattern is a slanting ribbing stitch.
Needles are 2mm (US 0) *HiyaHiya Double-Pointed Needles, which is pretty much my usual for knitting socks. (it's 2mm or 2.25mm, it seems!)

The yarn bowl is my amazing find from *NaturalKnotWood.  I'm seriously thinking of getting a few more yarn bowls from their store, next chance I get!

I'm actually quite happy with how these are turning out, I have to admit. I really wasn't sure the yarn would work with the stitch pattern, but it actually does quite well.

Well, that's it for this week!  As always, I'd love to see what you crafty folks are making out there, and it doesn't have to be knitting! Please, post your own crafty awesomeness to the comments below!
