Thanks for the well wishes. My cold is slowly subsiding - much slower than I'd like but progress is progress. And speaking of progress.
Dave's socks are coming along nicely
Beside, if I finish these up too quickly, I'll have to cast on something new (so I have a travel project) and I won't really feel like I'm cleaning out the WIPs.
I do have my next travel project picked out, though. I'm going to make the Broken Seed Stitch socks.
