Finishing touches

that's where I am up to this week.
The Reversible Wrap has been resting since October 2012. Last week it was retrieved from the warehouse and I was pleased to see that it was very close to finished. 

Only a little knitting left to do and then putting the pieces together.
I stitched part 2 to part 1, then completed the knitting on part 3 and have begun attaching this piece as well. Not too much longer for this one.
Yay, it will be keeping me warm real soon.
This week has mostly been about the free sole socks, which you have seen here recently.
See.. 

Now the knitting is done on these too and they just need threads woven in, there's not a lot of them, so I should be done with these by the end of the week.
Reading has mostly been about inspiration for a new project or two? 'The Complete book of Crochet Stitch Designs' by Linda Schapper and 'Colorwork for adventurous knitters' by Lori Ihnen. Lots of lovely designs to consider just need to decide which one to do first.
I did cast on the second red sock but haven't progressed further than the band.
Joining the yarn along again this week.
Hope your creative space filled with wonderful warm designs.

I just L-O-V-E those socks! Nice to give a finish to a project that's been hanging around for awhile isn't it. Good luck with another "close" to finish! :)
