Thank you all so, so very much for your well-wishes and shared stories. They really warmed my heart.
I did something totally crazy yesterday: I ripped out the Torgeir sweater I was having so much trouble with. The Silky Wool is now back in the closet, and I feel so much better for it. My wips are cleared out (only the Cleopatra Wrap remains as a long-term project), my knitting feels new again.
And I finished the Conwy socks, too, but a FO post will have to wait for blocking and daylight to happen.
So my February installment of the Year of Socks is a little late, but only by a few days. I think this month is going to be all about small projects–another pair of socks, certainly. Some progress on Cleopatra but I don’t expect to finish it this month. Mostly because it seems like every woman I know is having babies, these days. There’s only one logical reaction, I think…
…run to my lys and buy a ton of machine-washable baby wool.
