I want to say that it will be finished by the end of the weekened but I am not too sure about that. It depends what my work schedule is and how much time I have left over after completing all the work I missed on Thursday and Friday. I am still a little sick too so it will all depend.
I did do something else than just my sock though. I wanted some mindless knitting that I wouldnt need to worry about messing up if my medicine had me a little foggy. I did some searing on Lion Brand's website and found this easy pattern. I casted on last night and switched off between working on the stole and the sock.
This picture is more for the fact of looking at the lace pattern. Its very simple - just a k2tog, yo across the row followed by a straight knit on the next row.
You can see the colors really good in this picture. There's a little bit of gray mixed into the verigation which I wasn't sure how much I was going to like at first, but it looks okay.
I also think I've found a new knitting bag. I went to NYC back in Novemeber and was caught up in the moment when i bought this bag;
I realized when I got home that ti is actually a luggage carry on. I wasn't sure what I was going to do since I felt kind of funny about carrying it about as an actual purse so I just stored it up in my closet until my mom's friend suggested using it as a knitting bag. It works wonderfully. Theres a little zipper thing in the middle two keep two projects seperate, theres compartments for needles and measuring tapes and all that jazz. Plus it's quite roomy which is always good.
See? It hold the large ball of yarn for my stole, plus my sock project. It's very nice because it sits in the crock at the fold of your arm near your elbow so it makes standing somewhere and knitting quite easy. Although I am going to have to work on someway to keep it open - even when unzippered it kind of stays shut and you have to tug a bit on yarn.
That is all my knitting news for now. The only other thing left is that I switched to the new blogger. I like the old version better I think. I lost my WIP percent bars. I can't figure out how to tweak the HTML and get it to work. I should probably work on it when IM not sick, so I'm just going to leave it for now so I don't mess anything up worse. :-] That's all my news for now.
