I also am making good progress on the UVA sock, using PurlBee's Fishnet Anklets pattern and finding it interesting and quick. Not sure if the lace pattern will be comfortable on the bottom of the foot, but when I tried stockinette, it looked too small. Not sweating it though; I can always rip back!
In addition, I've started a PDA case from AlterKnits, one of my favorite browsing books; it's like a coffee table knitting book in my opinion, with gorgeous photos of artistic looking people and projects, with creativity exercises throughout the pages. I may even try my hand at needle felting or at the very least, embellishing it in some way!
Back to the root canal doctor this afternoon. Hope your day is a good one!
