WIP Wednesday

On my needles: I'm still working on the Online Supersocke Summer socks (I'm calling them Cotton Candy socks because that's what the colors remind me of). The first sock is finished, and the second sock is past the heel. I need to finish these really soon, because I'm starting KPs Two at Once, Toe Up socks from my sock blank for the Ravelympics. I'm not posting a picture of the sock in progress because you saw the first one here, and really, how much difference is there between sock one and sock two?
I realized yesterday that I have been paying far too much knitting attention to socks lately! If you look at my Ravelry "about me" page, everything in my Featured Finished Objects is socks! I love knitting socks, but I also love knitting other things too! On that note, I'm about to start a baby sweater binge - we have four couple friends who have just had or are about to have babies. Three girls and one boy, and just to pique your curiousity, I've been ordering yarn and dyes for some pint sized gifts.

Last week I started a February Baby Sweater from Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Almanac. I'm using Berroco Comfort DK. I love how soft and cushy the yarn is, and the fact that it is machine washable and dryable. It is pretty splitty yarn. I did the sleeves magic loop and now I'm onto the body. I just started my second skein, and I'm pretty sure it won't take all of it. I am knitting this for the almost-4-week-old daughter of some good friends :)
