It is safe to say I am absolutely wretched at posting my weekly updates. We are how many months in and this is my third update ??? *face palm*
How exactly does this happen? The good news is that I haven't stopped actually knitting and crocheting - just the updating part. So here is my attempt at getting everyone up to speed on what I have done thus far.
I hurt my foot so I've not been able to do a whole lot of extracurricular activities outside of sitting - and when a Yarny is sitting, we all know what happens - yarny goodness! The silver lining of the injured foot is I have finished several items.
I finished the Lapghan I
I also finished two knit bookmarks, not on the list, but they are for Christmas as well so I might as well give them mention.
I do have a pair of socks on the needles... both of them. I started out trying to do them both at the same time using the magic loop method - but I will tell ya, Yarny Readers who knit, I don't like using the magic loop very much. Perhaps if I were using it for one item, then it would be fine, it just seemed a lot more time was spent in adjusting the loop and getting ready to knit than I normally do. I finished both toes with all increases so its not like I didn't give it the ole college try. I will try again for a pair of fingerless mitts I want to make, but it will only be one mitt. Or I may try it on a cowl or something. I don't think its a matter of I just couldn't figure it out - I did. I really just didn't like it for what I was doing.
Since breaking the two socks away from each other and running 2 circulars into each, In about 4 hours total I have knit up one entire foot, turned the heel, and started on the leg AND worked some of the foot on the second sock. In that same 4 hours, I barely got the toes going when I had them all on 1 circ.
As I said, I'll try again - just not with a 2-at-a-time sock situation. I am considering 2-at-a-time on 2 circs though.... we'll see if I go crazy with that one.
As for the Navajo blanket, I have less than a foot left to go. Soooo close! Once I muster up my motivation (ie finish all my other projects) I'll do a huge push to get that bad boy done.
So that's it. I finished the lapghan and continue to work.
