Wednesday, already! How did that happen? Must be something to do with the long weekend last weekend for Canada Day.
This week I'm exactly one sock further ahead on my Dragonfly socks. I'm taking part in a mini KAL with Tangled Up in Sticks and String, as well as participating in the Summer of Socks 2012. It's not too late to join up for either or both, if you're interested! Now that I've made a good start on the gusset decreases of the second sock, it's almost a sure thing that these'll be ready in time for FO Friday ;)
As for my Smitten: A Holiday Garland advent calendar, I've finished mini-mitt #13 so I'm about halfway. Although ... now I'm thinking I should make a second one for Gavin, so perhaps I'm not quite that far ahead. Looks like I will have enough odd balls and remnants in my stash in various weights to come up with 24 different colour mitts. Hurray for that! I'm still trying to decide what to do about numbering them, so suggestions are welcome.
And last but not least, what's black and white and red all over? I'm making a pair of Hilja's Mittens with just a few more rounds to go until the thumb on the first mitt. I'm loving them so far and hope to have at least one finished for my Year of Projects update on Sunday.
Happy 4th of July to all my American friends. As always on Wednesdays, check the links at Tami's Amis to see what everyone else is up to!
