In knitting news, there has been improvement as well. My chunky vest is currently drying after it's vinegar bath.
February's class at the shop is socks. I worked diligently on my current project ...
Done! Another gift to be scratched off my list!
And the afghan project continues apace. Remember two weeks ago when I mentioned -- you are right, I complained --about the bobbles? I listened to Barb talk a student through a bobble and realized that the problem was mine alone. I pulled my square out to look at, and Barb instantly saw my problem. I not-so-graciously frogged back to the first bobble row and redid it. It looks much better now.
With the absence of both the vest and socks in my knitting bag, I needed a traveling project. Doug has been muttering about his need for new mittens, and even threatened to take up knitting himself to rectify that shortage. To protect my stash, I cast on a mitten project.
The Elsebeth Lavold vest has not really progressed. Truth in advertising requires me to confess that I have not even touched it. Something about the idea of a sleeveless shell in the middle of a cold winter just doesn't feel right, you know? It might become the travel knitting next week, but my son's family is experiencing a fair bit of winter themselves. Who knows, eh?
