What I'm working on...

Note to Lynn:  I'm not sure how old the vintage Red Heart Fingering is, but it has a price of 39 cents.  That HAS to be pretty old.  Plus, the heart says "Start knitting here" and is attached to the inner end of the skein.  Boy, do I wish they still made them that way!

School started last week, and with that came the need to start a sweater.  Yes, it's for me.  Yes, I know it's a man's sweater.  Too bad.  It's still for me.  I tried finding a woman's sweater to make using this yarn, but I kept coming back to this one.  It has a collar with a short zipper, so I'll have a new-to-me challenge to face at the end.

I've also been knitting socks.  As always.  These are worsted weight socks using Patons Classic wool and a broken rib pattern.  All that's left is to Kitchener the toes.

And last, here's a pair of plain socks that go with me where ever I go.  This is the first sock that's just past the heel.

The socks are both for the M4A sock drive that will be taken over to Kazakhstan by Nanci at the end of the year.

So, that's what I have on the needles right now.  (Well, that I'm actively working on.  I do have a couple of other projects that I really should finish up.  Sometime.   Maybe tomorrow.  But not today.)
