I am cautiously claiming some success with the shawl. I had frogged it back to the beginning (yet again) and was able to get past the point where I nearly flung the thing out the window last week. A few more rows and I'll put in a life line. Pictures to follow as soon as I have enough on the needles to make it worthwhile. I have not picked up the socks again quite yet. One pain in the neck at a time.
I've been playing around with Twitter and after making fun of people who use it have found that it's really a lot of fun. If you want to follow me you can find me as eileendoreen on Twitter. If you are up on Twitter and know of anything I should be following and am not, let me know.
