So, I returned to work this Wednesday which has been great. Even though it is still a physical challenge to get from A to B, I was mentally ready to start getting back to my normal routing. Work have been fantastic, allowing me to ease back in on half days - huzzah!
My enforced knitting time was maybe not as productive as I had hoped, but I do have one finished project to report.
Baby #5's cardigan has been completed and mailed off this week. I ended up doing a short sleeve version, because when I looked at the size it was knitting up in, I doubt it will fit this babe until Autumn 2012.
I'm overall very happy with it - the colours work well together and I added a picot edge to the hem. Simple, yet effective.
I'm halfway through the second sock of Mum's Gratitude socks. She is heading home this weekend, after spending 5 weeks (some longer than others, for both of us!) looking after me. I was really hoping to have them finished by this date, but they will get done quickly from this point, I imagine.
and I have only half the collar and the i-cord trim left on my Stellar...so of course I have not touched it in weeks!
I intend to knuckle down this coming week and see if I can finish both projects - don't wish me luck; wish me FOCUS :)
As promised, a little knitting quiz to finish on....
What knitted socks was I wearing to make this pattern on my puffy foot, hmmm??
