WIP Wednesday / Yarn Along

Not a very colourful post today, but I must tell you I have been knitting my fingers to the bone - Literally! I think I am getting "knitting fingers", my thumbs are getting so sore and inflamed, but I just can't seem to put the darned needles down! 
I am working on finishing up the two pairs of socks that were ordered from me. They need to be pretty much finished by the end of the month. So far, I am not doing too badly, I have finished one pair yesterday (will show you them on Friday) and have started the next pair this morning. I am knitting them to my Simply Cabled Sox pattern (available in my Craftsy Store). This pattern is built as an image tutorial for a simple cabling in socks - you can read more here.
I can't wait to finish them so I can go back to the work I was busy with last week, and finish some of the other poor WIPs waiting in the shadows.
Last week I also started on something for Kay. 
Our weather seems to have turned back to winter, I don't really mind, as it has got me looking at some more coolish kinda weather goodies to knit. So, I was looking for something that Kay might appreciate and came across this knit which I am thrilled to say she can't wait to have :-D It is coming along nicely and is quite a nice "mindless" knitting project and grows from row to row.
My reading is still not getting anywhere and I have resorted to listening to some audio books so I can read something at least! I am listening to "The Secrets of the Power of Intention" by Dr. Wayne Dyer as I desperately need to change my attitude and mindset right now, am loving this, but then I really appreciate his works, so I know I am in good hands! 
I am sharing with the wonderful folk over at:

    1. Hi knitreadclick,

      Yip, I am not sure I will do it again! As much as I love knitting, knitting for someone else isn't really my cup of tea, but maybe it is because it is socks, not sure :)

      Thanks for your visit.

    1. Hi bookworm-Mary,

      Thank you, it is a ball of sock yarn that I didn't know what to do with. Kay loves the colours included in the wool so it looks like it was meant to be something for her anyway!
