So, I've got a few updated projects on my Ravelry Projects Page, and thought I'd show the pictures here too.
1) My current test-knit (test-knit thread is here, for those who are curious)
I've just finished the heel and am continuing on the foot. I'm quite loving the pattern (pattern's not live on Ravelry yet, sorry!)
( Edit: Pattern went live and is here.)
It's funny -- I was worried about these not fitting, but they're actually a touch too small before blocking. (And yes, before you ask, you -can- block acrylic no problem, when I get a suitable project done, I'll show you how I do it!)
Edit: And here's the tutorial, for those who are curious!
2) Birthday Socks
Yes, the crazy birthday knitting (for the moment) payed off -- I'm 3 rows short of the heel.
And, with a bit of practice, the pattern is actually memorable. It just took a bit longer to 'stick' in my head then other projects did, it seems (or I'm getting better at memorizing patterns -- that works too!) That makes these my convenient transit project now, since I don't need to have the chart out in front of me any more!
Well, that's it for now. I'll be heading off to my local Knit Night tonight, and I'll see how much I get done!
