Last night I had the urge to complete some UFOs to clear the decks. I finished up the reversible vest, which is now blocking with the small fan to hurry things along:
so the total count for the spring campaign is
1719 pairs of socks. Wow, that’s been a lot of socks. Fortunately, I’ve learned some new techniques along the way to make things more interesting!
In the charity category, also completed was a helmet liner for Socks for Soldiers, which will go with a pair of socks. Unfortunately, I need to complete another one with the leftover yarn, so there’s another one on the needles tonight.
The hope is that getting these other things out of the way will allow time for:
- assembling a mitered-square blanket for Afghans for Afghans in honor of Kay Gardiner’s husband.
- finishing the Slinky Ribs sweater
- playing with yarn – not sure what, but I want to work on combining yarns together in unexpected ways
