Progress, sweet progress.

My works-in-progress are progressing! I am SO FREAKING HAPPY. I can't wait to start some new stuff, which I'm hoping to do by the end of the month. (I've imposed a moratorium on new projects until the WIPs are all done.)

I would show you pictures, but I don't have any new ones still. (I found my camera, but it's too much effort to take photos right now, so you'll just have to take my word on it.)

The January sock club socks are over 3/4 of the way done, which is a LOT of progress. I just have a few more inches and to choose a new cuff because the one that came in the pattern doesn't do it for me.

I finally wound another ball of yarn for the Double Cream sweater... this thing is going to be SO COZY when it's cold outside. I'm imagining wearing it at Christmas while opening presents - of course, the weather will probably refuse to cooperate and be 70 degrees outside because, let's face it, it's Texas, and Texas weather don't play nice.

Okay, looking over the list, it doesn't look like I've made that much progress. BUT I refuse to be deterred. Back to knitting Double Cream!
