I had just gotten over my flareup of the bacterial infection when I got a cold, and then of course the bacterial infection flared up again. So I've been home off and on and packing away the prescription medications. I've been too ill to knit very fast, but I have been knitting some, and I have been finishing things! For example:
My poor mom's socks, started July 2007 — all they needed was Kitchenering, if you can believe it. These look a little long because my mom wears a larger size than I do. These are in April's least favorite sock yarn — Cascade Fixation. I can understand not loving it, but it's really practical when you live in San Diego and can't wear merino year-round.
Then there's some merino — Sundara merino sock yarn, to be exact, in Bloodstone:
These ones are for me. I am still far from having enough handmade socks, though you wouldn't think so given my recent activity.
So the reason it looks like I have MORE WIPs than I did before — despite this bout of finishitis — is that I'm finally going through my blog and putting all my old projects into Ravelry. (I've just finished 2006, so I have a couple of years more to check through.) As I do this, I'm discovering some old WIPs that I'd kind of forgotten about. Hopefully this will inspire me to pick up the needles and finish!
