Well, I didn't get a lot of knitting done this week again. Work is just a pain in the but when you really want to knit. Thereby, I had some frogging to do which really doesn't help on the progress front. For example, I started the Waving Lace socks for my mom, but didn't like the way the yarn and the pattern interacted with eachother. So I frogged two inches and started with another pattern (Diamante from Knitty) and I like it so much I'm going to keep it for myself - hate it when that happens. For my mom I grabbed a skein of Lorna's Laces Cool and started a zigzag pattern from a Dutch sock knitting group. It's actually pretty cool yet I don't feel that these should be mine mine mine! In other words, I can give them away when they're done. I had to frog some on these socks too 'cause they were getting rather big on 2.25 mm needles.

But, there was a finish this week. This Mama-e's yarn was first going to be socks for an unspecified adult, but alas, the colorway is so sweet that one could get diabetes from wearing them. But perfect for a little girl.

ribbit! Nice work on the restart though--they look like little sails on a boat :)
