A Little Knitting

Not much knitting going on but some.  We've had so much extremely cold weather that has riled up arthritis in my hands.  Mainly thumbs ache that goes all the way to the wrist.  I've had lots of suggestions for relief that I will be implementing when I can.  Anyway, I've knit three hats, one was a UFO completed, for the Lone Star State Knitters Group chairty effort for children who lost a parent in the military.  It is a year-long charity so I'll probably knit more later.

I also knit six rectangles for the Handmade Afghan Project for injured military.  These are 6" x 9" rectangles that are crocheted into twin-size afghans.  This is also an ongoing project.  These were mainly garter stitch so I could use them for mindless knitting and get them done in a hurry.
Need to get back to work on the blue top-down sweater.  So close to finishing but it keeps returning to time out for being a boring knit!
