January was a productive month. Hoping February will be the same. Luckily it’s starting off well with one finish and another that’s close. Knocked out most of the 2nd Staked Sock on Friday when I was off. You see, it was about 4 degrees for the high that day and the truth was I just didn’t want to go outside. So I didn’t. I sat on the couch and knitted a sock! So one of my 4 pair due to be finished before the end of March is done. And the 2nd pair is close. I finished the short rows for the heel on the 2nd sock and the leg of the first went quickly, hoping I will report my Lenores as finished by next weekend. I’ve also been putting in time on my Merlia scarf. I love cables in cream! I expect this will get a fair bit of attention during the Super Bowl game tonight.
In the mean time I am working on a 2nd pair of fingerless mitts. Same pattern as the ones I knit last week but this time with a bit of wrist shaping for a better fit. Finished the first yesterday and am well on my way through the 2nd. I couldn’t be happier with the fit on this 2nd pair! Next step will be to write down the schematics so that I can duplicate them with a different cable pattern, hopefully one to call my very own next time! More on the mitts later in the week when I can show off both pair.
