From the Depths of the UFO Pile

I give you...

Hub Sock 2.0!

Over the holiday weekend, I dug Hub's second sock out of the long forgotten project pile and continued knitting it. I managed to finish the cuff, heel, and heel turn. The heel saw some KIP action Saturday night at Symphony on the Prairie. We arrived roughly an hour before the River City Band took the stage - primo knitting time! The weather was gorgeous, so I knitted on into the performance until it got too dark to see the grey stitches.

Last night, I started swatching the Knitpick's Gloss yarn for a project I'm cooking up for an online swap. It's wonderful - nice stitch definition, beautiful silky sheen, buttery soft, and not in the least bit splitty.
