And luckily, I just finished the second, exact pair, tonight!
Dad is still recovering from his knee replacement surgery of two weeks ago. I joked to him that even though he is still wearing the socks, at least they are getting a rest and not so much wear and tear. To quote my dad, he said, "Never in the history of the universe, has a pair of socks ever worked so hard." Maybe it was the pain killers talking, but I laughed. He also said the next pair doesn't have to be fancy or anything.
WIP Wednesday Update! I'm enjoying Turtlegirl's idea. It really motivated me to finish these socks so that they wouldn't be a WIP this week. And I finished the baby vest for the upcoming baptism. Oh, by the way, my brother...fun story...JUST LAST NIGHT....asked my sister and I to be godmother's on Saturday!! Seriously!! He said he thought he already asked us! Oh, brother!!
Back to WIP, no progress on the Dreamswatch, Tomato Sweater, Gryffindor socks, or the mate to my Monkey sock (but I loved Pashyknits Monkeys!). So I thought I'd drag out my "other" WIPs, but really, they are more like UFOs (hidden away, unfinished, not being worked on). I might pick up one soon though.
Here is my circular shrug in Tapestry. Its about 2/3 done. Its been this way since before Christmas.
Here's my second Clapotis. I love love love this. I pulled it out in the spring and got started on it again (initially started last year), but then it got put on the backburner again. The colors are sooo fall, hopefully I'll get to it this fall.
Hope to have some more FOs and WIP for next week! Happy Knitting! xoxox Irishgirlieknits
