Thank you so much for the get-well wishes! My stomach muscles got lots of exercise this week from the constant coughing, but I am finally feeling better. Here are the promised sock photos:
Pattern: My generic 56 stitch toe-up sock with short-row heels
Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Yarn, Plumicious, 2 skeins
Needles: US #1 / 40″ Addi Turbo for Magic Loop
Thoughts: Still had difficulty closing the gaps between the live stitches on the short row heel and the ones on the instep, but oh well. This project confirmed my prior feeling that knitting two socks at once really isn’t my thing, so if I do toe-ups again I will do them individually. Love the Claudia yarn!
I also managed to knit a hat.
Pattern: Sparkle Hat from Stitch ‘N Bitch
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky, M-34 Victorian Pink, less than 1 skein
Needles: US #11 / 16″ Addi Turbo and US #10 Brittany DPNs
Thoughts: About time that I knit this because I bought the large sequins two years ago! A little too much sparkle, but definitely fun!
