A WIP post

Mostly, because nothing seems to be finished. I am failing miserably at SOS'08. I had such lofty plans then the 'must do' knitting came up and there were the 'these need to be finished before I start more socks' projects. So I'm stuck, finishing my Hedgerows that are sucking the life out of me the way Retro-Rib did, but I really like the finished sock so I persevere.

I'm really loving the Sundara sock yarn and the socks are looking really nice, I'm just about done the gusset decreases on the second sock. When these are done I will be casting on Cleopatra's stockings with my STR lightweight, The Incredible Shrinking Violet. Love. It. If all goes well, I hope to have them done by the time the July Kit arrives. I'm not really sure where May and June went, they just kind of disappeared.

I'm also plugging away on Icarus. I'm really enjoying this. I've finished all the repeats of Chart 1 and I'm about halfway through chart 2. It's getting to be rather slow going as the rows get longer and longer, but it's so so pretty. I'd love to be done for my birthday, but I'm not sure if I'm going to get enough knitting time to actually accomplish it. With the boys home from school and all that actual parenting that needs to be done. It's Sundara Silk lace from the first Seasons mailing when I recieved Spring by mistake, but I loved the Gooseberries, so I wasn't too upset.

And that is what's going on here.
