In A Rut

I seem to be in a blogging rut. I've been knitting and crocheting but just haven't seemed to find the energy to sit down and write a post. Plus, I've been lazy about taking pictures.

I'm still working on the same 3 pair of socks. This weekend I made good progress on my second Can't Elope sock (just a few more rounds to go on the foot and then it will be time to start toe decreases). I also made some progress on my first Mystery sock. I completed the gusset and I'm working my way down the foot. I'm concerned that I'm going to run out of yarn, though. YIKES! I still need to cast on the second Black Bunny Pink Lemonade sock. I won't do that until the Can't Elope socks are done, which will hopefully happen this week.

I'm also still working on the same baby afghan. I finally finished all the squares this weekend and starting sewing them together. I'll be really happy when this one is done. And I won't be making this pattern again, as there are a million ends to weave in.

In other news, I signed up for two swaps. I think I have everything I'm going to send my Chocolate Swap partner, I just need to pack it all up and send it out. Now I need to concentrate on getting items to send my Knitters Tea Swap 2 pal.

I signed up for Socktoberfest over at Lolly's blog. My Soctoberfest plans include finishing my current sock projects and casting on more when they are done. I stumbled upon another KAL today, too. This one is the Lime & Violet KAL. Since I happen to have a skein of the yarn (Lisa Souza Sock! in the Lime & Violet colorway) in my stash, I signed up.

I will post some pics as soon as I finish some of these projects.
