I finally took pictures of the (very few) knitted things I've completed this year! In a fit of pre-Christmas spirit, I wrapped up yarn for my brothers and stepfather and promised them all socks by June for their Christmas presents. They're mostly done:
|Stepfather Socks: Regia Sock Something, ~413 yds|
|Stepbrother Kai Socks: Regia Sock Something, ~395 yds.|
THB's socks are half done and have been dedicated out-of-the-house knitting. I've got a coffee date with Nadia tonight, so maybe I'll get a few rows in on them over gossip.
I also spent an evening and several episodes of Grey's Anatomy binding off the over 400 stitches on my Slant Shawl that I started in November:
|ella rae Lace Merino, 883 yds.|
|So. Many. Holes! (TWSS)|
|Somewhere around 1500 yards of knitting - gone.|
And in other news, I've returned to the possibility of tomatoes. Last year I got my plants over Mother's Day, but this year I planted earlier and the contrast is pretty clear:
|May 16, 2011|
|May 8, 2012|
At this rate, I might even get tomatoes before August!
