Finished things

It's amazing how much you can get done when you can't go anywhere. So far, in the last 5 weeks, I've finished a pair of socks, 2 hats, Lady Eleanor Shawl (it was half done), a Clapotis (it was half finished) and yesterday, I finished the knitting on my Tahoe Sweater. Hurrah! Today, I'm blocking the two front panels of the cardigans. The sweater will be blocked over the next several days because I can't use my blocking board extended out. I'd have to put it on the floor and I'm not sure I'd be able to stand up without putting any weight on the broken ankle. so I'm using the blocking board folded in half on my kitchen table, which severely limits my ability to block. I'm just so happy the knitting is done. Yippee.

Now, I've finished all my big UFOs, so I'll need to start something new... Hmmmm... What to do next.

On the ankle report, still have an inch hole in my ankle that hasn't healed and on a better note, going to see the doctor this Friday and maybe I'll be able to put some weight on it. Keep your fingers crossed.

The second oldest UFO now a FO!

So, the ravelympics has spurred my on a finishing spree. So, behold, the second oldest UFO is now a finished object. Hurrah!!!
After two years and 4 months, it's finally an FO! This is the famous Clapotis, of course. This is the 4th one I've made and the one I will keep for myself. It has been hiding away in a box until I pulled it out last week. It's made out of some Brooks Farm Duet.

Yeah Me!!! Now, back to finish Tahoe. Must take advantage of finishitis.
