Shirts & Socks

I ordered a long and short sleeved version of this t-shirt from Urban Yarns.

On the back it says: Until she started all that knitting.
When I told David about the t-shirts, he laughed and said I needed one of each! ;)

I have almost finished my sock pattern with the lovely merino-tencel wool from Yarn Botanika.
I have to go look up how to do a Kitchener stitch again.

I have been sewing, which cuts into my knitting time and am also in a bit of a knitting funk. I ripped out the Mystery Stole. I will try again with bigger yarn but the provisional and cobweb weight yarn did not go well together.

I don't know WHAT I want to knit so I am finishing my Sock Swap socks and will knit the second one to this set & write up the pattern.

I also need to finish my wristlet for the Wristlet Swap hosted by AfricanKelli. Her recent post about Slosh Ball (kickball with a keg) was quite funny!
