I also worked on some socks - finished up one in Opal (yarn gifted to me by the ever generous Helga). I have to cast on the next one, and will do so this week. I also finished up a pair of bamboo socks - probably to be gifted to my Mom - they're not finished here, but I did finish them on the drive home. The sock mojo is returning!
I started a couple of cotton stretch socks - fast moving due to the thicker yarn, larger needles (3.0mm instead of my usual 2.25mm)and fewer stitches. I had forgotten my small circulars that I use to start toes, and started these on dpns - a little tough for the first couple of rounds, but doable. Good to know. I decided to work both of these at the same time (it's not like I don't have enough needles), and see how that goes.
I also started a little project - it's a purse-like bag - smallish, but not too small, in a Celtic circle pattern in some black and red Briggs and Little yarn I had hanging around. I've made bags like this before, in fair isle patterns, and they were well received as gifts, so I thought I would try it again.
So all in all, a good week. I relaxed with family, and did some things that make me happy. Can't ask for much more than that.
