I'm making very slow progress on the Surf socks, but progress, nonetheless, right? I enjoyknitting with this yarn (Regia) and I'musing size 2 needles. The decision to continue in ribbing was made at the last minute because the rib makes my socks stay up better ever though it's a pain to knit. In the end I'll be glad I did, so onward. These are in the very beginning stages as you can see (and yes, I did have the nerve to start another pair, when I certainly didn't need one). I'm going to try out a pattern from Simply Sensational Socks, the baby cable rib. I hope once I get past the leg, I don't wind up misunderstanding these directions because I don't seem to have much luck using this book. I know others rave about it, but since there are approximately 4 pages of errata on SSS at last count, it could wind up being a bit dicey. If that's the case, I will switch to a tried and true heel pattern from one of my other books. I am still plodding away on the linen shawl and making scant progress. I would like to finish it to get it out of the way and clear the road for finally completing my Fair Isle cardigan.....I MUST finish this baby and I MUST do it this year....no more procrastination. You heard it here, so keep me honest and bug me about this sweater, please.
