Updates, Old and New

What a wild ride this week has been.  We were nipped by Sandy, with most of the damage exclusive to the immediate coast and low lying areas.  Pretty much what we're used to with any bad nor'easter.  What a mess they have up north, though.  Hopefully, those areas' recovery efforts will go smoothly and quickly. 

It did give us Monday off work, although I did not seem to put it to good use.  My focus these days is minimal at best and wild weather really messes me up.  I think I un-accomplished more than I accomplished.  I ended up ripping out the Christmas sock I had started and restarted with a different pattern.  I was going to do Hedgerow Socks, but it was eating up too much of my limited amount of yarn.  And it was tedious.  So I went looking and found Tracks and have most of the leg done now.

I still think I might run out of yarn before I get to the toe.  Tune in next week...

I started and finished a scarf on Saturday, so this is officially my Sandy project (yes, we were getting nasty weather on Saturday due to Sandy).

This was done in Jo-Ann's Sensations Angel Hair yarn Red multi color on US 11's.  The pattern is Classic Elite's Sinful Ribbed Scarf.  I would definately like to do this again in a DK yarn closer to what the pattern calls for.  I used one ball for this one and one less repeat than the pattern. 

Nature's Little Helper has a slight bit of progress.

And, lo and behold, I actually picked up the Lamplighter Garden and put a few stitches into it last night.  I bet you'd forgotten about that one, hadn't you?

Happy Stitching,
