At long last!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes last week. I’m mostly over my cold now. Strangely, it was mild (as in I didn’t need much medicine), but also was lingering and annoying. I was very glad to finally get a good night’s sleep!

I managed to finish three garter squares for Warm Up America, but I didn’t feel well enough for the MOA and Knit-Out, so I’ve mailed them directly to the organization. No pictures of the squares; they were knit with Bernat Softee doubled, left over from this blanket (scroll down a little bit).

Once the squares were finished, I eagerly returned to the Fluted Banister socks, because the toes were all that was left to knit. Here’s the ex-UFO:

I’m so very happy with how these turned out. They fit perfectly. Molly (1SSP) gifted me this yarn last summer, thank you!


Tomorrow, I’ll post a contest, which I hope you’ll enjoy! :)

    The socks turned out very nicely. I hate colds that linger like that, but at least it’s over, right?

    Great socks!

    Glad you are over your cold. DH got cold from work unfortunately. But hold on, spring is coming! I can feel it.

    I saw that you made the Travel Monk bag. I’ve been thinking about the bag, and been kept postponing. As much as I want to make a bag, I want to put lining inside to make the bag sturdier. The problem is I can’t sew.
