I like what the ladies at the Mason-Dixon knitting blog are doing. They do a quick 15 minute blog each day or so. That way they form a habit and keep it current. I'll try to do that rather than a once a week catch-up.
This week is Winter break for the kids and week-end break for their parents, which means kids week for us. Not sure what we will do with them. It is cold and snowy out, so maybe a movie day, a craft day, a cookie-baking day? I got a new jigsaw puzzle, so maybe that will help.
I love everything about this project. The yarn is soft and lovely and the colors remind me of a favorite dress I had as a little girl that was yellow and brown and pink, which I called my ice-cream dress. I will definitely make this sock again, but make the leg another inch longer (I was afraid I was going to run out of yarn, but had plenty). It is an easy pattern with great results.
I love, love, love the Honey Cowl already. I am using a Plymouth yarn named Kodu, which I have had in my stash way too long. It is a cotton and silk blend, but I thought I would give this pattern a try using it and so far it is coming out with great awesomeness! I have my next Honey Cowl all lined up. I may have fallen into a dark hole!
There is great discussion on the Ravelry boards trying to pin down a pattern that would replicate Watson's cowl and there have been many suggestions. I think I am going to go with the Lava Flow cowl, maybe a bit wider.
I am happy to say, I have gotten my knitting mojo back. It seemed to have deserted me last year
