Current works in progress

A vanilla sock. Right now I'm thinking it may turn into a Christmas gift, but that could change. I started it last week but haven't really worked on it til this past weekend. Made with some vinca sock yarn (I think). I wanted this to be my work project, but so far almost everything I bring to the office to work on during breaks and stuff ... yeah, it doesn't happen.

The Float Stole. Slowly and bit by bit it's progressing. I'm starting row 14.

I love the little row of YO's. I think they look so sweet just sitting there waiting for the rest of the pattern so it can be shown off to it's best advantage. :-)

I did complete a mitten. I'm making a pair for DS for the coming winter. I'm making them with extra long cuffs and using a pattern "guide" thingy from a book someone was kind enough to loan me. I made the finger part of the mitten too long even though I had ripped it back significantly. The thumb gusset is perfect. I will rip the finger part *again.*

I have to admit though, I haven't been feeling much like knitting. I'm in the mood for reading. I requested the first book of the Stephanie Plum series from the library. Some of the women in my moms group have been tearing through them.

We have also been doing a little bit of geocaching. DS thinks the best part of geocaching has been finding the raspberries in the woods. We found one this weekend that was the start of a multicache. We haven't run across one of those before. I had no writing utensils or camera with me so we had to just put it back. DS said he wanted to find "treasures that had toys in them." :-) So you know where his mind was at.
