I finished the bluebell socks yesterday- I still need to take care of the ends on both these and the zebra socks. But given how HOT it has been here, I haven't been too tempted to finish up my WOOL socks. I know I will be thankful for their warmth at some point, just not yet! :) Perhaps this weekend I'll get them out of the "to finish" pile and into the "to wash" pile.
Of course, that might be a little difficult since I started sigma with some shiny white yarn I got ages ago on ebay. It is very similar to the yarn I used for my mom's vest, but much shinier. I think it'll make a really neat tank top! I also need to finally finish Dalmore... I haven't worked on it all week, but all I have left is cutting and knitting the last armhole. Well, that's all the KNITTING I have left. I also need to trim and tack down the steeks, and weave in any ends. Then comes the blocking... But my goal for this weekend is, at a minimum, finish the knitting. I may have until Christmas to finish this for my Dad, but the longer I leave it, the less motivated I am to do all those little "chores" at the end of the project. And I'm also not sure how long it'll take to block this- I also need to give it a gentle wash (thankfully I have a frontloader with a "wool" setting in my apt!) to get rid of SOME of the cat fur I am sure is coating it. So I'm thinking gentle cold water wash, some stretching and pinning, and then some steaming. :)
For your friday amusement, I present the amazing extendo-kitty:
she has it SO hard. ;)
