However! To take my mind off other things yesterday (those being the meals I wasn't eating), I put on an audiobook and finished off the latest pair of mittens that fell out of my knitting bag, and a pair of socks. See:
Speaking of cute:
The socks were a good deal more work- I'd poked along through the first one and cast on the second a little over a week ago. In between there was a long weekend with a house party and lots of board games and socializing, so I made it to the start of the heel over the weekend. From the heel turn to the cuff was this weekend. Pattern is more or less the Seeded Rib sock from Charlene Schurch. These are for me, and with the chilly weather, I'm pleased to have them done!
And of course the very next thing to do was cast on another pair of socks! Self patterning, because, fun, and it's good for a traveling project.
Next up- finish that danged sweater! And also, Super-Secret Holiday Knitting. Shhh...
