I finally finished the leg warmers for my colleague! They weren't boring as such (the pattern was actually really fun to knit), but because it was commissioned (and by a coworker, no less) I felt like I had to get a move on and get them finished ASAP, so knit on them more monogamously than I probably would have otherwise.
Ah well, they're done now. I'm slightly worried if the cast-off ended up being too tight (despite using JSSBO), but I didn't want them to end up being too loose and falling off either! I told her to let me know and that I'd be happy to re-do them, so we'll see.
I've finished my first February sock and cast on for the second. Still in love with the way these three yarns play together :) I tried a garter stitch short row heel for the first time, so it'll be interesting to see how I like that compared to a regular short row heel.
In the futile hope of actually getting something substantial finished for the Clean Slate Challenge (not looking likely at this point in time - too much of what I've been knitting lately has been with new yarn!) I picked "Professor McGonagall" back up and managed to make quite significant progress on that. Another 7 rows, and I'm ready to start the stars!
Finally, I finally (no pun intended) got around to do sweater surgery on my Spring Showers cardigan. I finished it last autumn, but ran out of yarn so the sleeves weren't quite as long as I'd like. I thought I could live with it, but the constant pulling down of sleeves was driving me crazy, so I bit the bullet and bought some more yarn, hoping that the differences in dyelots wouldn't be too noticeable in twisted rib.
And it wasn't - another 20 rounds added and even I would be hard pressed to tell you where I switched yarns. I forgot to take proper before or after photos, but I did get one half-way through for comparison.
