Wednesday, 09 July:
*woke with major sinus headache, probably due to allergies and an open window in bedroom for several hours last night... sigh... spent most of day on couch, with ice packs, waiting for pain killers and decongestants to do their thing... no daytime knitting once again, but I did make some progress after supper...

14th 15 minutes- total time 3:30

15th 15 minutes- total time: 3:45

While I am trying for the sprint-knitting of this cardigan, I am also working on finishing my second Retro Rib Sock- because, how could I leave it in such a state of near completion? I have to keep sneaking in 4 rnd repeats...and then there's this basket of new yarn, for new design projects, just begging to be wound for the swatching to begin! No project monogamy for me...Happy knitting-

Uh! Wow! Like superwoman. Obviously you are a very fast knitter because you actually did a good amount of that cardi. I am impressed. Love your retro rib socks - I am going to try a second pair - this time I will use thinner yarn and smaller needles.

Looks great. You are so funny to take pictures along the way like that. I can't believe how many times I've finished a project and then given it away before I even remember to take a picture! Ugh!
