Mid October Update

Socktober has begun and I'm plugging away. I finished my February Lady Socks in Squoosh Confection. I also am participating in the Mystery Sock KAL from Through the Loops using my malabrigo sock-cordovan (US1). That is going pretty well. New clues on Thursdays, knitting both socks because I had parts of two skeins leftover from Jon's socks. I also started Jon's Plucky Merino Socks in Nessie. Boy, I love that yarn. Those are counting toward my Sock Knitters Anonymous October project. Such fun groups and very motivating. If I finish those by the end of the month, I'll be pretty satisfied.

I started my Whisper Cardigan, but it is on hold due to the socks in progress. More to come on that. Plus, it was really cold for two weeks and a lace wt. sweater seemed silly.

I did finish my next NaKniSweMoDo sweater. Love IT. It is Anise from Rowan and I used the remaining Cascade 109 in black. It is a great dressy sweater.
