Well. When I wrote in my last post that I don't want to finish Aranmor too soon, I didn't have this in mind. In the last few weeks I've only knitted for maybe four hours. To make a long story short, I had a fun work project but totally underestimated the time it would take. So basically I did four weeks work in two weeks (ouch!), and this week I've been doing everything else I didn't have time to do then (laundry, cleaning up and other boring stuff).
Aranmor looks about the same as last time (only longer), so I won't bother with a picture. But I did finish the first Pomatomus sock.
The remarkable thing is that it fits even though I used Fleece Artist Merino (28st/4'') instead of Shelridge Farm Soft Touch Ultra Fingering Weight (32st/4'').
Either I have bigger feet than I thought or I'm a tight knitter. I'd like to think it's the latter :)
As soon as I finished the sock I felt the first symptoms of Second Sock Syndrome, so to alleviate the pain I started the Sapporo 2007 Nordic World Ski Championships (22 Feb - 4 Mar) project.
It is the Cable-Trim Jacket from Classic Knits for Real Women, I'm using a super soft yarn called Schachenmayr Boston. And because Japan has a different timezone from ours I'm watching cross-country skiing in the mornings (and knitting at the same time), so it's not a bad way to start the day. Although Aranmor will still be my number one project, I expect to finish the jacket fairly quickly because I'm using 8mm needles.
I'm also going to London with a friend in May. After talking about it for 15 years or so, we're finally going to the Chelsea Flower Show! Woohoo!
