Sometimes you just need to finish a project. That urge for completion and casting off. Enter the Uptown Scarf from Weekend Knitting. Knit on very, very huge size #35 needles (thanks again Sarah for letting me borrow them!) it knit up super quick in just a night. I used some stash yarn - not my favorite, but it worked pretty well for this project. I opted to add the fringe because, well, I was in a fringy mood.
I am happy to report that I have finished both the sleeves for Licorice Whip. I just need to do the cuffs and a few inches at the bottom of the sweater itself. The yarn is pretty much gone (I will get one cuff out of what I have left), but Lolly to the rescue! Thank goodness we have similar tastes in thrift finds. She actually had two of these sweaters she picked up at a thrift store right around when I did. I was so lucky that one is the same purple color and that she is willing to part with some of it! I won't need much, but it will be nice to be able to finish it off.
The Turret sock is growing slowly but surely. I'm about 3/4 through the leg. When I do have time to knit on it, it progresses quickly. Naomi and I have some heel decisions to make. Carry the pattern down the back? Plain short row? Plain heel flap?
And, of course I have some puppy pictures. They are growing by leaps and ounces every day. Gaining a good 2 ounces each day, you can really see them changing (and their bellies growing!) The next big event will be their eyes and ears opening around 10-14 days old. Sometime mid week.
