To Pool or Not to Pool?


Judy L. at Patchwork Times is sponsoring a Pooling Challenge, so I dug out these 2 possibilities from my stash.  I started the Simple Skyp pattern with the yarn on the right and am loving the Skyp stitch, but so far no pooling is happening....... Would that be Murphy's Law perhaps?


These brown socks for DH finally popped off the needles this week and are being worn!


Here's our newest great niece, Kaitlyn, along with her siblings.  I need to get going on finishing her gift before she outgrows it!

Check out what others have on their needles at Patchwork Times.

What a precious photo of the siblings - one they will cherish later.

I'd love to jump in the pooling challenge, but I have too many other projects that must be finished first. Sigh!

Doesn't that just figure!!! Maybe some pooling will happen around the gussets.

Hi, Judy. Pretty sock yarns. Don't you know that yarns only pool when you don't want them to pool. :-) Such a sweet photo.

Hmmm...never heard of a pooling challenge. Sounds interesting though. I hope to hear more about how well it goes.

it is definitely murphy's law. You should cast on hoping for it not to pool and then you would get what you wanted on opposite day!
