Its 45 degrees in January in Wisconsin! And while I could take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and run outside, I am sick with no energy.
So what to do? Knit of course!
Today I dug through my projects basket and pulled out some socks I had been working on. My first “people” socks. I’ve done a few pairs of socks for the girls’ American Girl dolls. Believe it or not, I started/knit the first sock on our vacation back in August! Yeah…This pattern is from the book Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders. I love the One Skein Wonders books! So many neat projects that are quick, but don’t use a ton of yarn so it keeps it affordable. These socks are in the color Planetarium from Knit Picks. I love the color! Its even prettier than the photo…more rich and dark.Here’s what I started in on today while I caught up on my Parks & Recreation. [LOVE that show!]I’m going to work on it more tonight. I’m doing the heel flap so it doesn’t look like much progress for a bit. 🙂The good news is, that after 4 days of being sick I think I’m improving. I know this because I’m getting an appetite back again. The past couple days I’ve been eating here and there ~ healthy, but not a ton. I think it has caught up with me! Time to go dig up some yummy food for supper tonight!
I have wanted to share this headband that I recently finished. It is a pattern called Ropes & Ladders from the book Knitting 24/7 that I checked out at the library.

I have plans to make some more, but I’m going to come up with my own pattern. But here’s my creation…
