Even though I didn't get a 3-day weekend and after spending most of the day Saturday out and about running errands, I got quite a bit accomplished. I completed my January 2008 Rockin' Sock Club socks on Saturday evening.

Sunday was a very productive day. I knit a hat for my 9 year old son. I also crocheted 2 Swiffer Shrugs using some leftover cotton.

First the hat.

Devin & Hat
Yarn - Handspun that I received in a swap from Yoyo Knits. It's 100% Superwash Merino and super soft. The color is called 'Red Rum!'
Pattern - Pro Bono Hat

Next the Swiffer Shrugs. These were fun and quick to do. The pink and purple one follows the pattern as written. The pink/orange/yellow one I modified a little. They both fit my Swiffer and I haven't decided which I like better yet.

"Secret" Socks

These socks were knit so fast that I never had a chance to post about them before they were done. I didn't even get any "in progress" pictures. These were started on Thursday, Jan 24 and finished on Friday, Feb 1. (Yeah, and this post was written on Monday, Feb 4 and I'm just now getting around to posting it.)

I have 2 more pair of socks on the needles. The January 2008 Rockin' Sock Club socks and another pair that will be done in stockinette so I'll have a 'take-along' project if I need it. (Links are to my Ravelry project pages.)
