progress on the jacket
Yeah, not that much progress. I know. Please don't be so hard on me. I'm really trying.
I am past the point at which the sleeves will be attached and, I am 2 inches down in stockinette, when I need to be 10 and a half. But I'm still motivated! I'll update you again. I really wanted to talk about my next potential project.
I've done baby booties, but what I am referring to here, is a pair of sock that will please a full grown adult. Either Joel or I will do. I am still on the hunt for some beautiful yarns. Something
like this, or this even. Theses hand painted ones are so beautiful!

I know socks don't last forever, but I'll be using something like a size 1 needle. Do you know how small those are? They are very small. Small enough, that after all the knitting is done, and my fingers stop bleeding, I want the finished product to dazzle me.
So I need do some real good research. Has anyone done socks before? Ali? Do you have a favorite pattern? I would gladly accept any help at all. :)
