Wow! Those are beautiful. I feel very untalented. My socks look more like bent tubes. I started the second on for my MIL's birthday, and all ready they are not the same size. I am in the ribbing for pete's sake!!
Since her birthday is Nov 16, I need to concentrate on getting them done, so the cardigan will be slow going until they are done. Although, I would rather work onthe cardigan.
NK continue to take care of yourself! Your knitting career is at stake.
CB good luck with the nursing duties!
