I'm not sure what's happened of late. What with all that silly Christmas mitten knitting and a sudden new obsession with tapestry I experienced a major hiatus in my endless sock knitting fest.
Naturally, I could only put off the inevitable for so long and now we're back on track. Normal service has been resumed.
This lovely green goodness is helping me tackle a truly challenging but highly enjoyable pattern - Wednesday socks (Ravelry link). Perfect knitting for those moments when nothing but absolute total concentration to the exclusion of all else is in order!
For the less quiet moments I'm knitting these On-Hold socks, from my 'Knitting Socks from The Toe-up' book. These are my current in-car knit.
A very necessary in-car knit. I've been spending hours in the car of late, as I have a quite silly number of schools booked in for work this term and a little bit of knitting between visits helps the day along nicely.
By far the best bit of knitting though is a very special one-off mitten for Mr Moog - requested by the man himself. He's always avoided my offers to knit for him but even he has admitted that a bespoke broken wrist mitt is just what the doctor ordered!
A mere 23 months after his motorcycle accident, he had the surgery to bolt his fractured wrist back together last Monday. He's going back next week to have stitches removed and a new plaster put on and then - much to his disgust - it's back to work.
Not sure how he's going to get there or what he'll be able to do with only one good hand but at least the TV will get a bit of a rest!
I've got an actual day off tomorrow. First one this year! Apart from the school run, taxi-ing Mr Moog about and taking Moog swimming, my only plans involve a sofa and my knitting needles.
I also have a bit of work news. As they're still awaiting the results of a(nother) review, our contracts have been extended until the end of September and hopefully by then we'll know one way or the other.
I may have to celebrate with a little bit of yarn shopping :o)
