I finished the Estonian Lace Socks, called "Fox faces" by Nancy Bush. Nice lace pattern, and wonderful Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. Knitting back and forth to work, but a great pattern in most aspects. Sorry for dark picture, it is not THAT dark? I guess my screen is newer ;-) Anyhow, the heat is still on. I am working hard on the dissertation. Life is going on. We have started to exercise, which feels VERY good. Every second day! 5 km, walking half, and then jogging) slow and walking in intervals back... We feel like new people. I can see this being addictive, but the knee is a bit sore.. Regardless, a new strength is there. Optimism.
The Cast on Mania is still "lingering" on a bit. I have casted on three knew knits. I guess it feels fun to knit fast cotton and silk T-shirts and shrugs. Or some left-over tape yarn like this...It is wonderful, Knitting away.....wonderful! Just wonderful. I hope you have a great time too.
