Came back from holiday--started a couple of new projects. One is a raglan wide-ribbed sweater using classic elite 03 tweed and my new book, The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. It's my first attempt using it, so I hope it works out ok.

The other is a pair of Magic Stripe socks using Wendy's generic toe-up sock pattern. I've never knitting a pair of socks toe-up before, though I have made mittens that way. I wanted to find out how well the short-row heel fits. I'm so glad to finally be able to make a pair of knitted socks for me.

I find that my hands still hurt though, so I'm trying to take things easy. I have a lot of projects in mind for gifts, but i figure i can take a *little* time to make something for myself first.
