I have new socks. First ones I have made for myself
in a couple of years.
Pattern is Carmanah
These are toe up, but I knit top down and reversed
Knit the foot in a plain
KTBL, K2, KTBL, P2
Not sure if all of the work of TBL was worth
The leg is a thick pattern so I didn't want to continue
it down the foot. Plus, I was bored with it.
Martha gave me this yarn a couple of years ago and when
she sees them in person she is going to be sorry she
gave the yarn away. Thanks ,Martha!!
My concentration this week was getting the
socks done. Today I started working on the
first sweater sleeve. I have short arms, so it
will go fast.
The totally brainless project is perking along.
I work on it in the mornings when I get up...
no concentration needed.

Martha is interrupting her sock knitting for the
moment. Here is her current progress:
