The first of the Spring Forward socks is done! Finally! The dang thing gave me more trouble... At the midpoint, I'll say that while I like feel of the Panda Cotton once it's knit up, I'm still not convinced that I'll ever see the need to use it again. It's rather splitty, and I'm not in love with the way it feels while I'm knitting it. Still, I definitely like the feel of the finished sock.
I made myself finish the sock so I could cast the above on with a free and clear conscience. This is the Undulating Waves Scarf I'm making for the class I'm taking at Knit Wit. We swatched on Tuesday, and it really wasn't until the end of the swatch that I was finally getting the hang of the knitting. Now that I've cast on, I've been reading the written out instructions rather than the chart, and I'm finding it a somewhat easier go than with the swatch.
And finally, today I found out the date for a co-worker's baby shower that I've been planning on making something for. Turns out it's on February 3rd. So I need to come up with something to make before then. I'd like to make a sweater, and maybe a pair or two of socks, and have a couple of ideas kicking around in my head/Ravelry queue. We'll see how that goes. It's supposed to snow on Sunday, so I suppose I'll have time to plan.
