So, even though I swore I was steering clear of knit-a-longs this year, I've signed up for 3.
1. Jaywalker. I'm almost to the heel of my second sock - right on track to get these done for the Feb 14th deadline.
2. 200sox. So many of my favorite handknit socks are getting threadbare (knit over 5 years ago) - it's time to supplement the supply.
3. Stephanie's Knitting Olympics. This weekend, while visiting Aaron's grandfather (who is the the final stages of cancer), I was talking with his Grandmother. She has yet to receive a handknit sweater from me, and I asked her if she would like one. By how specific she was with her request, I would say she does! She would like a red, machine washable, zipper front cardigan with cables. Her birthday is on Feb 14th, and she said to me, "I think it's going to get lost in the shuffle this year." (by 'shuffle' she is referring to her husband dying). So - I'd like to get this done by then, hoping that a little handknit warmth will soothe her during a very difficult time. And joining the knitting Olympics will give me a 'team' to get me through it.
No knitting pictures to show, although I did get a bunch done this weekend. I'll try and take some pictures tonight.
