After working on Mariam's jacket and hat and finishing the knit/sewn dress, I kind of got the bug again and am making more of an effort to make time for it. It helps that I'm not nearly as exhausted as I was before and that there is some little progress being made on the house so it doesn't require as much attention as it has (though still a ton).
Anyway, I cast on for some of these socks for the Yasmina and Amira. I'm using fingering weight yarn, rather than sport weight, so I changed the number of sts and modified the heel a little. We are doing a kind of rose quartz color for one pair and a rosy/raspberry color for the other pair.
Alexander and Dominic have renewed their interest in learning to knit, so I may be teaching them on some of these fall and winter days.
