Then There Were Two

Two socks done, two WIPs left on the needles.

I knit like a madwoman last night at knit night and managed to get nearly the entire foot of my second sock done. I finished up the toe when I got home. They could probably use a blocking to get all the stitches to even out, but I love how they turned out. (And they're much prettier and brighter when it's not a rainy, gloomy day outside.)


Although I will continue to work on my Through the Loops Mystery Shawl as the clues are released, my main goal this month is to finally finish up my long-languishing handspun Breezy Cardigan. My Ravelry notebook tells me that I cast on for it last June 29, so it's coming up on its first birthday. At the moment, all that stands between me and a finished sweater is a sleeve and the ribbing on the neckline and fronts, and it'd be great to have that all done by the end of the month.



Worst case, I know I have a day off on the 28th (I'm having some minor oral surgery done, so I'm supposed to keep my feet up for a day or two afterward). I'm planning on parking myself on the bed or couch with some good movies queued up and minimal, if any, interruptions, so I should be able to plow through whatever's left to do by then. Ideally, I'd like to have it done before the Tour de Fleece starts on June 29 and I turn all my attention to spinning!

I hope your surgery goes well! I'm sure you'll finish up your sweater in time for Tour de Fleece =D

Those socks look amazing. I love repetitive patterns like that. And as far s the surgery goes, good luck and have some water and whatever pain medicine they give you, next to the bed. When you wake up, it's the first thing you want to take.
