Work is progressing on my two current knitting projects. (I recently bought a laptop, so I have to confess to spending some of what is normally knitting time in front of the tv doing file clean up on the laptop instead.)
I don't remember if I mentioned before, but I started on the Barrow socks as Magic Loop socks, but I only had a circular needle in that size with a 47" cable, and that was driving me crazy, so I switched over to DPNs instead. I've been enjoying the pattern. It's much less complicated than it looks, but still interesting, and this yarn has been nice to work with.
The Claudia hat is going well, but I'm now to the boring ribbing section before the crown, so I've basically just been doing a row at a time, here and there. Granted, I'm now pretty far away from the kind of weather necessary to wear this, so I'm not in any hurry to finish it.
I'm definitely holding off on starting any new projects until I can finish at least one of these, in the interests of keeping my knitting basket a little lighter.
