Thanks to my usual slacker tendencies when it comes to posting, I have failed to keep you updated on my knitting life. Mostly it's been socks and shawls ( yes, my usual).
Over the last few weeks, I'd say the most interesting socks I've finished are the Achilles Heal socks from Knitty. The heel on this one was unique and a lot of fun to knit once you got your stitches organized. FYI, I worked over 4 DPNs and had the needles meet where markers were called for, and used a marker to show the start of the round and the end of the heel. Right off the needles, I didn't like the way the instep and heel sat, but after washing and blocking, it was fine. This is a great project for handpainted yarn. And as a bonus, they knitted up fast.
On my needles now, I am finishing up the SusannaIC January Mystery Shawl, which is looking fabulous. I am planning on finishing that up today. For socks, I am working on a pair of my own design that is a combination of ribbing and lace.
On a more personal note, I haven't been getting as much knitting done as I'd like due to chronic migraines over the last month. I've started seeing a chiropractor and am getting some real relief, so I will hopefully be more productive.
