Not Much Going On

There hasn't been a lot of knitting going on lately, so this will be a short post.

I've done a little knitting on my sock yarn blanket. This is obviously a project that will take some time before it's completed, though I need to work more at it.

I really love this project.  It's pretty much mindless knitting, though I find I do have to pay attention to the middle section where I slip two stitches to the right needle, knit one, a pass those previous two over. I also have to be a little attentive on the reverse side where I purl the one middle stitch. Other than that, it's straight knitting so it's pretty easy.

I've also not been working a lot on my Hermione's Everyday Socks.  I do love this pattern, however. I just haven't been knitting.

This is another easy pattern, and it's a free download on Ravelry.  It has a nice texture in the leg and the top of the foot.  It has a Fish Lips Kiss heel which I've not done before, and I'm debating whether or not to purchase the pattern (it's only $1 USD on Ravelry), or do my normal heel.  I'd like to try something new, so I just might purchase the pattern. I've seen lots of others do this heel on Instagram, and they say it's pretty easy, so I just might cave in and try it.

Aside from those two projects, I've not started anything else new yet.  I have some patterns in mind that I'd like to start next - mostly socks - but I'm going to wait to start them.  Hopefully by then I'll have my knitting mojo back!

So, what have you been up to lately? Would love to hear about it!
