Socks complete!

Well. I have a knitting injury-- tendonitis in my right wrist (I am a thrower). I have been taking naproxen resting it (not knitting for a week was so hard), and wearing a brace at night so it doesn't get bent in weird positions. I have finished my SOS KAL Hermione's Everyday Socks

They are were knit on Size 1 Bamboo circulars (cuff down 2 circ method), Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock in The Bella's Lullaby Colorway

I have finished the heels of one pair of Afterthought Heel socks! They fit me but I already have a pair in the same yarn so I believe they will be going to my Grandma for Christmas. Last year I gave her a certificate for one pair by next Christmas. Haha. I am hoping to swatch for the Rocky Coast Cardigan! Since it's knit on larger knitting with worsted weight yarn it should be better for my wrist. All I have knit this year is socks on those size 1's....

I also had some stash enhancement:

Lollipop Yarns  in Pretty Pretty Princeess. You've got to be ready for her updates (Sundays 7pm EST). The page was sold out in about five minutes. I had to make a quick decision between Pretty Pretty Princess and Zing, a purple and black color way. I think I made the right choice.


I picked up some great accessories for my college id and my best friend's belated birthday present. C goes to KU and loves her ADPI sorority.

So I got a custom piece from The Southern Stamper Etsy Shop. She was great to work with- came up with multiple options and was super fast at shipping.

And for myself I got this adorable owl from Badge Blooms

Super cute!

And cat pics of the week.
