Keeping my fingers crossed!

I can't tell you any details yet, but if you would be so kind as to keep your fingers crossed for me on Wednesday morning, I would be very grateful.

There has been progress this week on all pieces as follows:

 Although my back stitching mojo has done a runner, I did manage to get it together this morning and start the last section of the left hand border on Baby Express.  Some progress is better than none, so I'm just going to carry on with the border for the time being and hope that when that's done, I can find the urge to finish the back stitch.

I'm also working my way up the foot of my second toe up sock.  I went to a different Knit Group on Monday evening within walking distance of my house, which was interesting and very different from my Saturday Knit Group.  I got quite a bit done on the sock that evening and will be going back this week.

Hitchhiker has now reached point 31, but there is still a lot of yarn on the ball.  I now have over 120 stitches on the needle, so each point takes longer to complete than the one before.  I'm not giving this piece any kind of deadline because I really have no idea when I am likely to finish it.

I have also knitted a swatch for my first jumper but I am holding off casting on until I have finished one of the other pieces.  Time is too tight to have three knitting projects on the go when I have deadlines on other things to keep in mind.

In other news, I went to the doctor this week  about on-going discomfort in my upper left leg.  He says I have a problem with my IT band and has referred me to the physio, so I have an appointment this coming week - watch this space.

Why are weekends always so short?  Back to work in the morning, so here's all the best to you and yours, and may the frog stay well clear of your needles.
