With school keeping me busy, I haven't been knitting as much as I'd like, though I have been plugging away on a pair of simple toe-up socks, in KnitPicks Felici Sport, for my sister, that I'm hoping to finish before her birthday. Already well up the leg, they're close to finished.
Inspired by the CogKNITive podcast, I finished my first Mother Bear Project in ONE day. (Ok, it was like 6 hours or so, but still....) Knitting for charity takes away the guilt of knitting when there are probably other things I could be doing (like studying or laundry). The pattern is a little fiddly, with the body parts, yarn switching, and embroidered facial details, but it's such a small cute thing, that it knits fairly quickly.
