I have happy feet because my Birds in Flight Socks are done, and they’re so warm and comfortable! (And even though spring is officially here, I do need them—we’re getting more snow today.) I released the pattern yesterday—it’s available on Ravelry.
I’m still working on Nathan’s spring cotton cardigan, but I’m not making the progress I should be because I’ve been needle felting cute little things for spring. But more on that some other time. The cardigan is a fun, easy knit that’s knitting up very quickly considering the sport weight gauge (6 sts/in). And the pattern still remains nameless. Any suggestions?

I’m still reading Oprah’s unauthorized biography when I make the time to read—and it keeps getting better and better. Kitty Kelly’s writing is actually pretty good and I find myself in awe of the amount of research she had to do—and TV show transcripts she had to pore over—in order to tell the whole story. It’s actually getting in the way of me enjoying the book. (I’m a writer by profession and hobby and can’t seem to detach myself from written words, or any words, really. I can’t read something without noticing typos or grammatical errors—without trying, I swear, and my husband doesn’t believe I’m not trying—and if the writing is good, I can’t seem to read it without evaluating why it’s good. It’s frustrating, and I think I have a previous employer to thank for that last part. But the typo-noticing thing is all my fault. I think it’s who I am.)
As always, on Wednesdays I’m knitting along with Ginny of Small Things.
More good knitting,Kelly
