I'm still working on the cotton projects: socks and shell. Cotton is such a nice fiber to work with as the temps warm up.
I started the sock on a weekend trip, and it's coming right along. The pattern is assuming I'm using double-pointed needles. However, I like using two circular needles to knit socks. So, to accommodate the pattern going down the top of the foot, I've had to split the 66 stitches between the heel stitches on one needle and the instep stitches on the other -- from the heel flap all the way to the toe. It's been a little awkward for picking up the stitches and knitting the gussets, but it's working out.
I've got a good start on the back of the shell. I'm at about 8", and I need 12" before I begin the armhole decreases.
