Yes, my ears are itchy. It's so bad that they woke me up. I saw a doctor this morning and he prescribed some drops to help with the inflammation and itching. I hope the stuff works.
While I was waiting to see the doctor, I finished my first pair of STR socks (excuse the poor picture - the sun is hibernating).
Yarn: STR mediumweight in Metamorphic (blog prize from Nikki)
Needles: 2.25mm dpns
Pattern: generic toe up
Notes: A pair of plain socks usually doesn't take me more than 2 weeks but these took 2 months to finish. Maybe I was savouring my first STR :)
I also finished knitting the Everlasting Bag Stopper.
Yarn: Super 10 cotton; 1 skein
Needles: 4mm and 6mm Addis
Pattern: Everlasting Bag Stopper by Amy Singer
Mods: I did a picot hem for the top of the bag. The bag is a little short because I was running out of yarn. Still don't know what to do about the handles.
I've started a second bag stopper and I have a request from a friend to make one in orange (to match the orange socks I knit for her). Anyone seen a bright orange (not pumpkin) cotton dk yarn that would be suitable?
Off to rummage around in the sock yarn stash for my next pair of plain socks. Or maybe I should work on one of my other 24 WIPs. Nah!
