Making Progress

Finished! Crystal Palace Panda Cotton anklets in Baby Blues colorway. Very cute, very soft, very stretchy. I wish I'd done a few more rows before starting the lace ribbing. Lesson learned. I have a ton of this left over; I'll have to figure out what to do with it. Buy a skein of a contrasting color and do stripes?
Almost finished! Blue Moon Socks that Rock in Farmhouse colorway.
Slogging away on the endless denim cardi and actually seeing progress. I finished the left side, then did the pockets and got pretty far up on one of the button bands.
Here's a close up, since my full-on shots always seem to look pretty much the same: big white sweater on a blue bedspread. For those of you not familiar with the denim yarn, this yarn shrinks up 10-20% when you wash it. So although the stitches may look somewhat loose right now, it all tightens up really nicely when it is washed.

Very beautiful socks and cardigan! I'm in awe of your ability to pick up that cardigan and work on it, let alone work out those pockets! Congratulations on a job well slogged! /Judith B. (from the M-D Slogalong
