I'm in great shape!
Finished up the Padina Pavonia Sock.

I have a bit done on the socks using the
Morning Hugs pattern.
afterthought heel, but not sure now.
The pattern is easilymemorized, but a little fiddly at first. Hard to see the pattern in the pics...
Started a pair of Ghostwood Mittens to go with the headband

Martha is quite far on her sweater, but found a booboo down

Martha's own words:
Can you see the mistake in my sweater? I was cruising along, medicating my tendinitis so I could speed along on my sweater. It looks good, right? Yeah right, until you look at the at the pattern!

Christmas knitting is done, I never noticed my mistake till
I looked at the blog.
She is also working on her vibrant socks!

Guess what! Ruth is knitting a little...as long as she
does not do too many purls, she is ok! Yippee!
She will be back on the blog in no time.
