This weekend I finally finished Leon's vest. It probably would have been a much quicker knit except for the two weeks in the middle when I didn't knit at all. I'm not convinced that knitting caused the problem in the first place, since, while I'm back to knitting I still can't clean. (To be clear, that's a CrossFit move that's causing me pain, not scrubbing the house). Anyway, that's currently blocking and even though I think it looks great, I'm glad to see the last of it. It's a grim reminder of a month when I barely knit. I'll get some photos on Leon once it's blocked and dry.
So, onward to happier days. My next project is a pair of socks Leon. During my layoff I bought a new knitting bag, because I wanted a new knitting a new knitting bag, and a also: pink giraffes. I'm knitting Twisted from Knitty, out of some Madeline Tosh I bought from Webs earlier this year. It was a little more purple than I expected, but Leon says it's still within acceptable parameters.
