I knew I needed a few quick knits to help me along and get back my shawl/blanket knitting mojo. So, I cast on for a pair of socks and finished them. I then decided we needed slippers for our upcoming trip to cold country. I quickly made my youngest a pair and cast on another for my daughter. With his finished and hers halfway complete, I found another project to satisfy my need for speed. I started a set of leg warmers.
I now have one legwarmer and a slipper on the needles as well as the Leaves of Grass. I plan to finish the slipper after this post. The legwarmer will be my travel project as it is an easy moss stitch pattern. With these two projects near completion, I think I am about ready to return to my blanket. My need for quick projects has been satisfied. I am hoping to finish Chart C this week and begin D. Rumor has it that the final charts require a lot of yarn. I sure hope so, or I will have the biggest worsted weight doily around town. Not too mention a whole lot of yarn left over!
