Sorry for the delay . . .

I've been a little busy on the weekends. Here's a quick and dirty update:

Charity Tank Top: Huzzah! The end of the Cotton Twist! Though, I gotta say—the top is SUPER cute. .

Super Boring Shawl: Finished it in time for Christmas, and didn't die of boredom. Sister-in-law was pleased, so I can't complain. Too much.

On the Needles:
Yet another pair of sox: One done, one to go. The 2nd sock is about an inch long. The relative inflexibility of cotton might be a problem in these socks—they’re quite tight as they go over my instep. If they don’t fit the intended recipient properly, they’ll have to be unraveled and re-knit from the heel out.

And yet still more socks: Thanks to my paranoia about taking metal knitting needles on planes (technically, I know they’re allowed, but I always get Mister/Miss SuperSensitive TSA rep as I go through security), I started another sock on bamboos in the airport on my way to PA for Christmas. It’s in some nuclearly bright orange/red/yellow/blue Trekking, and I love it. Generic toe-up pattern a la WendyKnits.

Butterfly: My next sweater, out of Noro Silk Garden. It’s a long, open cardigan from the Debbie Bliss/Noro book that was all the rage a year or two ago. It’s really working up beautifully, though I’m near sick to death of the chevron pattern after doing the back. Good news is, I don’t even have to look at my hands any more as I do it. One sleeve left to go. . . .

In the hoop:
I finished all the stitching on my CA Wells bunny pendant. I really need to have a bit of a finishing day—I might actually get something accomplished one of these days.
I also spent some time stitching on the Barn Kitties picture, and cranked out a Subversive Cross Stitch pattern that says "Candy Ass". I'm such a card.
