Thanks for the well-wishes . I'm still working from home because my back still isn't up to snuff - but it's better.
After I packed my work away for the day, I went on a mini cleaning rampage. I focused on my knitting station/coffee table and frogged some UFOs, organized some patterns, and rediscovered a design I had started a few months ago...
It was only a few repeats from being done, so I put my nose to the grindstone and finished it off. The pattern needs a few minor tweaks, and of course the second sock knit - but I'm quite pleased with it. It's very light and lacey - the perfect spring/summer sock.
This one is knit in our Alley Cat BFL - it's not my favourite, but it's still a good sturdy sock yarn, and washes up beautifully!
I've got a few more octopi to knit for friends (a couple of requests came in after I posted the last on Facebook), but I expect I should get the second sock done pretty quick. It's one of those patterns you seem to breeze through, because you just want to knit a few more rows to get to the end of the lace repeat.
