January wrap-up

Finished:

A pair of Leyburn socks for Maggie.

My January “self-imposed-sock-of-the-month” embossed leaves.

Dragged out from the WIP pile and dusted off:

The Icarus shawl I started in 2009.

And I started a new (mystery) project for my girl J’s presently-incubating “pintobean”.

Next pair of socks planned for February are the herringbone rib socks.  I’m not sure when I’m going to cast-on because I’m enjoying the distraction of lace and the mystery project.  It’s funny to see how much I’ve changed as a knitter since casting on the Icarus shawl.  I remember needing to have numerous lifelines and stitch markers and meticulously counting every stitch.  That doesn’t seem to be the case now.  But, before I get all haughty and “ohh-la-la-look-at-me-miss-hot-shot-knitter”, I am still on the main body of the shawl which is pretty damn simple.  I have yet to begin the lace edging.  😉

Texas is bracing for a nice little cold-snap starting tomorrow.  If all the stars are aligned and the moon is in the 7th house, I might get snow on my birthday.

Man…I need to get some pictures taken and update the blog and Ravelry….I love the January socks!

I’m liking the socks. The snow, not so much.

Aw! Cute widdle feets! Did you have Ellie model them? 😉

Very, very funny Ms. Ski-feet.
