So in the picture above are the Gryffindor Scarf and the Hummingbird Socks.
I wanted to go back to knitting with bigger needles to give my hands some relief so this had been my night-time knit. I am at the second set of stripes and planned to work on it during the hockey game last night (Pens lost in an epic fail to the NY Islanders) and instead I fell asleep due to a headache and didn't do much of anything.
The hummingbird socks are a new pair of socks. I am using Silver's Sock Class again without the ribbing to show off the fabulous Knit Picks Felici in Hummingbird. Isn't the color great! Saturated colors of green, teal, magenta and purple make me smile. I hadn't anticipated casting on more socks but I like working on socks while sitting in traffic on my way home and its an easy travel project to have on hand.
In other WIP news, I have another blue square done for the Lego Blanket but it really wasn't worth digging out the squares for a picture before I left for work this morning.
I haven't worked on either the Falling Water scarf or the Karina Vest because I am trying to focus on the projects that are gifts for other people.
I have finally found time to read and finished a book last week but I am behind on my goal and need to get in gear. I have a ton of books to read but really reading and knitting are a hard combination to pull off. Pictured above is what I am currently reading.
Here are some details about those books:
I will keep updating my progress and post a review when I finish.
