I got the second sock of the cabled pair cast on and have the ribbing done. I'm hoping to have time to work on it today. I also have a pair on the needles for me, the leg of one is done and on the other, I am working on turning the heel. I worked on them a lot while running back and forth from here to Las Cruces and El Paso, sitting at the DVM waiting on Bob and running other errands.

I'm working on reworking a top pattern to use a different type of yarn than what it calls for. The top is the Sonata Print Lace-Up Tank, by Elann. It is a free pattern using their Sonata Print yarn. It is mitered squares knitted with worsted weight yarn, I am planning on doing it in fingering weight sock yarn. I have lots of small balls of left overs from making socks and think that they will make a pretty top.

Didn't get much time to work on the yard this week. :( I still need to work on the new flower bed and dry creek areas. I won't be able to do as much right now on the new flower bed as I wanted to, but I will at least get the area around the one tree and my jasmine plant.
