YOP- 4/28/13

Another week with virtually nothing to report! Work was nuts and knitting was the only thing to save my sanity, I swear!  Well that and getting to see my BFF for the fourth time in under 2 months, this time with my Godkids in tow! Not so much a fan of seeing friends because of funerals but I’m taking the good and running with it.

Progress on Ink continues.  I finally decide at the end of skein 2 that I should try it on. Cuz, you know, 880 yards is the perfect point to check this for the first time, right? Luckily all is good and it fits PERFECTLY!  I have 42 rows to go to finish the pattern proper then decide how much more length, if any, I need to go before the ribbing then a pair of sleeves. I say this like it’s no problem what so ever but of course we all know the sleeves can take just about as long as the rest of the sweater! The progress makes me happy though and that’s really all that matters!

The vanilla sock hit a bit of a wall this week.  I did more reading than knitting at lunch so the heel needs yet to be turned but such is life. It’ll get done this week I suspect!

So anyway, the list as it stands today:
