Good grief, is this my first post of 2008? Gah. I really need to get better about this.
In any event, the Monkey socks are done!! They feel great on the feet too.
Next sock priority: to darn the Eleanor socks, which already have a hole in them (Darn!)
Also I am 3/4 (at least) of the way to completing the back of St Brigid. It's getting kind of routine now but the yarn and cables are so lovely that it's still a pleasure to knit.
And, in sewing news, I completed a Dora-themed nightgown for Claire (Kwik Sew 3105). My gathering and ruffling skills are improving a bit. It's still not perfect, but I'm OK with it. She's been wearing it to bed, so at least the major goal is accomplished.
Next sewing project: a T-shirt from Wazoodle's Grab Bag for girls, using the ever popular Jalie 2005 t-shirt pattern.
In other news, I am fiercely attempting to memorize the concerto I'm premiering next month. Fun times.
All right, here's hoping I don't skip another month!!
