For each day that I haven't posted a blog entry, I felt just a tad more guilty for not sharing what I've been up to. As you know, with the first of the month, it means I'm casting on like a mad woman. Well, I'm not participating in any Sock Knitter's Annoynomous KAL for December. However, I am knitting Shur'tugal with Jennifer. If you recall, I had cast on the sock using this yarn, but even though the stitch definition looks good, I didn't think it was right until I use a Socks That Rock yarn. Well, I was right. I finished one leg and decided I should work on the other gift items. This was the original sock:

I'm putting the Shur'tugal on hold and working on sock #2 of Holidazed (on the foot now...) and sock #2 of David Socks. I'm not working on any shawls at the moment. I finished my Buttonwillow a while ago. It blocked beautifully, but I just haven't been satisfied with the photoshoots.
Emily modeled another shawl I finished a while ago... again, not happy with most shots.
Here is the major boo-boo: (near the top, I had missed one of the middle spine stitches).
but don't tell anyone!
I'm off to find out what John's benefits are going to be when he retires - in 2012? or 2013? Mostly, I'm going to learn how much yarn buying I have to give up when he retires.
