Last weekend, I mentioned I had finished my last pair of Christmas socks for my brother and I love how they turned out. I can't get over how much of a difference knitting two socks at the same time makes for my knitting psyche. It feels really good knowing that I produced two identical socks and that I don't have to knit the exact same thing twice in a row in order to have completed a sock project. Love.
Believe it or not, my next project is a bit of a secret (again). I may decide to speak more freely about it after awhile, depending on how long it takes me to finish, but I'm keeping it quiet for now. I will say that this is my first chart-only pattern. I was a little nervous about that - I tend to rely on written instructions even when a chart is part of the pattern. But I'm finding that knitting from a chart isn't as hard as I thought it would be - I'm actually really enjoying it.
Book-wise, I'm still reading Bossypants and still really like it, even if my progress has been slow. I blame yard work and yoga for wearing me out and making me want to sleep (instead of read) as soon as my head hits the pillow.
