I have been working on two very different projects. A ranger cardigan for dear husband and socks (for me). I have never managed to knit two different things as once. Normally if I cast on something new the first project is abandoned until the new project is finished and then (hopefully) I pick it up again. But I needed a more portable project while I tackle the looooong rows of the ranger cardi now that the sleeves have been joined to the body.
I also like to keep a project together, ie all the yarn, the working piece and a bag of notions. So carrying the cardi into work each day (I'm a lunch time knitter) was getting rather tedious. Now it stays at home and it's my evening TV knitting project and the socks travel with me. This is another pair of Marlee Socks, I shared pair one on the blog last week.
My lovely husband gifted me a $200 voucher for Brooklyn Tweed last week and I am itching to spend it! What a great gift :)
