These socks have been my main knitting project for the several weeks, and are going to be gifted soon.
Status: After taking this photo on Saturday, I finished the toe and now just have to finish weaving in ends. My self-imposed deadline will be easy to meet, and then I can focus on the pink beret that I've started in the meantime.
Status: The actual knitting went quite quickly. However, since finishing the "good" part, these pieces have been off to one side of my coffee table where they have been slowly turning into part of the living room decor. Once I double-check that the size/shape of the scoop is right, I just need to add sprinkles, and stuff and sew it up. Hey Mary, get on it already!
Status: Neglected for months, and thwarted on the finishing.
You see, I had planned on adding a duplicate-stitch rose to each mitten. To that end, I took my time coming up with the perfect flower design, but when I stitched it on to a mitten it looked like crap. I then tweaked the flower design. Once again, it looked like crap. The flower idea is now scrapped, but I've since been undecided as to what embellishment to finish the mittens up with. Beads? I don't know. Like the ice cream cone, they're nearly done. I'm just sort of uninterested in them.
In Part 2: the remainder of the knitting projects, and... oh gosh, who knows what I'll unearth when it comes to sewing projects...
