As promised, here is a dispatch from the knitting basket.
I've finished my first pair of toe-up socks. They were destined to be a Christmas present, but when I saw how well they fit on my own feet, I uh, changed my mind. And, I'm fully converted to knitting toe up socks with a short row heel. They fit way better than the heel flap in my opinion.
Of course, not a day went by without me considering what socks to knit next. I've long planned to combine some sock remnants with a solid yarn. I've had this Nature's Palette in my stash for ages and this leftover Pagemill sock that I've been longing to see together... here are the results:
I'm almost done with the second ball of my Clapotis, just 1.5 balls to go. This is the project that is taking up most of my time. I really want to finish it in the next week or two so I'll have time to make a bunch of little things :)
I've also (guilt twinge) added to the yarn stash. I blame the BMFA mill sale. I didn't make it there, instead buying some stuff off of ravelry. I think I still saved money this way, but still added to the never ending yarn stash. When will I get the time to knit all of this yarn?
So how's your knitting going? What have you added to your stash?

What's going on now?
Miracles have happened and husbeast received and accepted a job offer at his dream company last week. He starts work soon. We are breathing sighs of relief and expecting great things ahead.
I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
