Feet, neck, arm, hands

Lots of work on extremities-related projects recently. Here's a photo of the Fuzzyfeet I made for R in Noro Kureyon:


I also wove the ends into the ruffle scarf made from Knitpicks Twist, which I get to keep because R's school did not sell scarves at the fundraiser after all. I wore it today and like it very much. And R begged me to start the Morehouse Merino bear paw mittens as soon as he saw the kit (scored at the Knitsmiths swap); one mitten minus claws down, one to go.

Still plodding on the first Cinxia sleeve. The size 10 double points are slightly unwieldy, and the black is getting a little dull, but I must be a good knitalong co-leader and make some progress on this sweater! Next week I'll have a ten hour car trip which might be just what the doctor ordered for knitting catch up.

Cynthia from my work knitting group will be proud to see that I am now in the habit of carrying a sock to knit with me at all times. I worked on the blue Fixation socks while waiting to get into the new Massachusetts IKEA (along with seemingly the rest of New England) and I have been known to pull out the Knitpicks Dancing socks for my husband during lunch breaks.

Ah, but here's a non-extremity project - Z's finished yellow sweater.


She doesn't want me to make the neck any tighter, so it's a little sloppy...but she loves it.


So, the next week the Cinxia sleeves will prepare for their beatdown, and um, I will also work on a scarf for one of my favorite colleagues who is leaving to take a job elsewhere. But Cinxia will be the priority. Oh, dang, got to finish the lap blanket before seeing Mom at Thanksgiving too! Oy. Stay tuned.

Hi, just wanted to say thanks for reminding me about the MIT knitting group! Haha, I actually have heard about it before, and I think it was from you - you were with Kathy at the Boston knit-out, right? I was the nervous overly-excited girl in the purple shirt. ;) I'd love to join you but I have a class during lunch this semester... I will try to stop by next semester though! (Especially because I didn't realize where you meet - my lab is on the 3rd floor of bldg 3 so it couldn't be much closer. :))
