Introducing the Schooner socks, first of several pair of socks I will knit for the Summer of Socks '08 knit a long. Honestly, I'd be knitting socks anyway, but this affords me the honor of having a badge. Who doesn't like to have badges and buttons? The yarn is Knit Picks Felici in 'schooner'
The February Lady Sweater is moving slowly simply due to my lack of focus. I usually knit patterned items at night, when the distractions ( a.k.a. my children) are asleep. However, I have been dawdling on Ravelry late into the night instead of knitting. Funny how things don't get done when you aren't actively doing them. I don't think the sweater looks this lumpy in real life, but I guess being shoved into a knitting bag would rumple the most even garter stitch. She'll look much more presentable after a bath.
