Anyway, I've still managed a few minutes of finishing work here and there, as well as some good old Stockinette stitch before bed each night, which has allowed me to make progress on three things:
1) I did seam the toe on my second Monkey Sock after my last post, so the pair of them are done, done, done! I made some mistakes, and they don't match perfectly, but they are mine, all mine, and I love them! I had planned on writing up the modifications I made to create a larger size, but now I see that Cookie A. has come out with a new book, in which she re-released the Monkey pattern with additional sizing options. I'm definitely putting the new book on my wish list.

the latest branch brought in by Harpo, the wonder cat.
2) I sewed the buttons on my Ribby Cardi and started adding I-cord trim and buttonholes. I decided to go with a contrast color for the I-cord and I am pleased with how it is coming along.
3) My Citron is growing larger. After flitting back and forth between the above two projects that just needed finishing, getting back to knitting Citron has felt like slipping into a pair of Malabrigo Loafers after wearing too-tight shoes all day. I can't wait to finish it up and block it. I've been weighing the ball of yarn after I finish each section and I think I can finish it up and still have enough of the Claudia Hand Painted Silk Yarn for another project, which is great because it is such a beautiful color.
That free time might still be coming my way, so I hope to show you some more progress on Friday, meanwhile, you can visit Tami's Amis to see some more works-in-progress.
