Another (very) bright sunny day here...chilly right now, but it is supposed to warm up by 20 or 25 degrees to 53 or so. And each day through Saturday progressively warmer. No daffodil blooms yet, but soon I think. And very noisy birds singing their spring mating and nesting songs. Finally!!
There was almost some unraveling last night, but I managed to *fix* my problem. The Shell Cottage socks are just a PITA to knit. Happily though, the first sock is able to fit on my foot/leg.
I knit a few more rows this morning and am finished the leg part - I'll (hopefully) start the heel flap at lunch today. I will knit the foot plain, so it should go faster. Second sock syndrome has never been a problem for me and actually I've always knit the second sock faster than the first. I'm HOPING that is the case again with this pair. I will be so very happy to have them completed!
Meanwhile, in the land of dreams, I am trying to figure out what else to cast on. Much to my surprise I really liked working on 3 projects at once (sock, shawl and cowl). I'm tempted to start another Hitchhiker (Mailing loved the one I just made, so I'm thinking of making one for her). Fletch would like another pair of socks (since the last pair ended up being too small for either he or Colin and ended up in my sock drawer!!). There are a couple of sweaters I'd like to make (but need yarn...Allentown Fiber Festival in just a couple of weeks!!). There are also a few shawl patterns I'd like to explore for myself. Hoping to dig into my stash this weekend and see what I can pull out.
Head on over to Kat's to see what others are up to on this gorgeous day. Happy Hump Day!!
