I Actually Have Knitting To Show

I finally finished the first Berroco sock Sunday (I can't even remember when I started it) and the second one is started (but who knows when it will be done). Last month was the first month in about 4 years I didn't get at least one pair of socks finished. My knitting has slowed down about as much as my blogging.

I started knitting squares from my leftover sock yarn to make an afghan (college bound daughter thinks it should be for her for her dorm room (but she plans to commute the first two years so that theory isn't very sound to me...but it might take me that long to finish it so it just might be!). The Lorna's Laces (lower left) and Meilenweit (upper left) squares block out at the required 7-1/2" but the Regia square (right) insists on being 8" (rebel). I need to grab up another ball and start numero 4.

I have started some new socks, but haven't gotten very far on them... in the Panda Cotton is "Step Into Summer" (Monica's latest design). It's hard to see the pattern in the picture, but it's a pretty lace and cable design. The other is "Shadow Rib" from the "Little Box of Socks" "book". Not really a book; it's a box. That is knit in yarn Monica gave me for my birthday last year (I keep forgetting what yarn it is...even though she has told me a gazillion times...this getting old and forgettting stuff stinks).

My girl graduated on the 31st (she is in Europe right now and I miss her something terrible ...so what if she's only been gone one day).
Happy Anniversary Monica (and to Tony too!)!!
That's all I have for now. Happy Knitting!!
