After months of avoiding working on this pair of socks I finally started the second sock last night. The pattern is Up All Night by Meanest Mommy Knits. It is easy to memorize and fits great (thanks to the rib).
I’m going to start slipper socks for my mother-in-law tonight or tomorrow. If I suddenly find hours to knit I might whip something up for my sister-in-law too. It is doubtful that I’ll find hours to knit; I have too much to do to get ready for Christmas.
I don’t have an updated picture of my shawl. I did work on it for a few hours. Then I dropped a stitch. It was in the only fiddly part of the shawl so I could not pick it up easily. I ended up tearing out the two inches I finished this week. The shawl is now sitting in a corner being punished. It knows what it did.
Have a great week and a Merry Christmas!
