1. I finished the pair of "on the go" stockinette socks. They are some sort of regular old workhorse sock yarn - Regia maybe? Stashy. I love them a lot. Also: the stripes match perfectly. That never happens in real life. I started them April 2011 and finished them in January 2012. Things go a lot faster when you actually knit them.
2. My next pair of just regular on the go stockinette socks are these. They are another regia - Galaxy - Saturn. They are splotchy (apparently by design), but I love the colors. And the yarn itself feels a little bit squishy to knit, but not too much. I'm on the second sock already - started them in January.
3. Also in January, I started a sweater for El. Her arms grew a lot since her pink sweater (ravelry). She picked out Cascade 220 Superwash paints that I had leftover from my sister's scarf and hat. I only had one skein and a small ball left. El now takes more than 220 yards of worsted weight yarn for a sweater. I had to order another skein to do the second sleeve, button bands and seaming (I knit the sleeves flat).
4. I knit coffee cozies for my team at work. I brought one in to my team meeting and they went nuts about it. It took about a weekend of semi-dedicated knitting. They're out of miscellaneous wool leftovers and/or stash. The kids thought they were wrist bands.
5. I have this zauberball sock going on too. It is delightfully Lilly Pulitzer in color scheme. Which, frankly, someone needs to partner with them to come up with sock yarn colors. :-) There might be nothing like Palm Beach inspired wool.
