on the needles: may 19th

1. New this week: Stripey socks! Yarn is Noro Kureyon Sock, purchased in Tokyo, and size 0 needles. I probably should be using 00s, but that's just a bridge too far. These are highly addictive - I cast them on less than 24 hours ago, and I'm already ready to start the heel.

2. Sherpa Jacket - Left front is done, currently working on the right front. Still madly in love with this project, and already wishing it was September so I could wear it already.

3. Gifthorse Hoodie - No progress. Somehow I've ended up with all my projects on tiny needles, and this poor guy keeps slipping to the bottom of the knitting list. It's the weird ribbed-looking cuff problem. I don't know what caused the problem, so I don't know how to to fix it, and I don't want to rip it back if I don't have a plan to re-do it differently. I think I'm going to steam block it and see if that makes it look better.

What are you working on this week?
