First FO of 2007


I was hoping to be able to post one of those sweaters, but I think daughter #1's sweater has given me tendonitis in my elbow. I can hardly move my right arm. That sweater is so heavy. So the first FO of 2007 is a pair of socks for CIC. One of my goals for this year is to knit more for charity, and I am well on my way. I have 2 other pair started with one done in each pair.
I am just making up patterns as I go along for these socks. I need variety to keep interested in the project. The push this time is for socks, sweaters and vests for the older kids, age 6 - 16. This pair of socks fits my 13 year old son. Hopefully after a day or two of resting the right arm, and working just on small projects, I will be able to finish the sweaters.

Sorry to hear about your elbow. Hope that heals quickly and you can get back to those sweaters.

Monica,
Love the socks. Rest that elbow. And take some advil. Anti-inflammatories will help.

The socks look good. Sorry to hear about your arm. You should try using circular needles for your daughter's jumper. It helps me with heavy items I knit because the knitting rests in my lap and I don't need to lift the needles to knit.
