April is the month of many months, lots of grading and just a ton of work in the academic world. So I have been focusing on small projects because I just don't have the time to take on anything large. Also, I am trying to clear out a few UFOS (like the mitered scarf that I posted about last time.)
So this week I finished a pair of socks that had been in the works for a long time. At any one time I am usually knitting at least two pairs of socks-- one that is a self-striping sock and one with a pattern. I tend to not get them done very quickly, so I am trying to just stick to one pair of socks now. Anyway I finished up the self-striping pair this week. They are knitted in Regia silk, which is super soft and really nice to work with.
I think I love them. They are soft and wearable.
Right now I am working on a Habu scarf, which is super boring, but I want to get it done so I can finish another UFO.
As for cross-stitch I finished my little pattern
This is one of the Bent Creek Snappers. I have another one to stitch and I want to frame them together, as a pair. It was a tiny and satisfying stitch, but I do need to learn how to start finishing my cross-stitches, as I have no finishing skills whatsoever.
Next up- a needlepoint I am working on and that Habu scarf. Then I hope to finish my other pair of socks. I guess you could say I have finishitis. I hope it sticks with me for a while....
