*tap tap* This thing on?

So, I went away for the weekend and then caught a nice sniffly cold, so that’s where I’ve been for the last week. And in my balloon-headed state it’s hard to work up the drive to knit, but at least I did manage to finish the Kool Aid socks a couple of days ago:

(Pay no attention to the ungrafted toes and the un-woven ends)

Also, this is the progress I have made on that Ribbi Cardi I wanted to have done for a Christmas present. Um…

(I don’t think this is getting done in the next 10 days.)

Also, I was out of town during the new Knitty release, so now I REALLY feel like I was out of the loop. I’ll have to take a 2nd look at the issue but sadly I don’t think there was anything that really jumped out at me screaming KNIT ME KNIT ME KNIT ME. Hm. Or, that could just be because I have plenty of other knitting to keep me busy already.

That’s my latest yarn acquisition – my first skeins of Cherry Tree Hill handpainted sock yarn, one in ‘jewels’ and one in ‘blueberry hill’. they’re gorgeous. The book is my copy of ‘A Christmas Carol’, which is up on the reading list for December at Knit The Classics. I have a couple of ideas of small things I could knit to go along with the book, but it’s a matter of whether I’ll have time to do the actual execution. Hm.

I hope y’all are well. Stay non-sniffly and cuddle your yarn for me!

    You’re not alone in that thought about the new Knitty.

    Glad you’re feeling better.

    Those koolaid socks are gorgeous! Ack, I had a cold that hit me the day after Thanksgiving and lasted 8 days…I feel for you, hopefully you’re feeling much better now and hey, all the best on the holiday knitting!

    Oh oops, meant to ask, how are you liking the Swish? Isn’t that what the cardi is? It’s looking fabulous.

    The socks are really great and so cool to have knit with yarn you dyed yourself.
