Ladies and gentlemen, we have... a blob.

My blackberry cabled cardigan is currently masquerading as a blob. I picked up the stitches again, this time doing 7 of every 8. I came up with 468 stitches, which is close to the number required for the small size. So, I'm taking that number and running with it. I don't know what else to do. I picked up the stitches with US6s (2 sizes smaller than the US8 I did the rest with), and OMG I literally bruised my finger and thumb when I knit the first row with the 8s. The side of my thumb was purple for 2 days.

I took the Aragorn socks to work with me the past 2 days, and I'm getting close to starting the gusset on the first sock. I'm making them for my childhood bff for her birthday (late March). I have a feeling I may be a bit late.

I have no idea what any of that means, but I hope your thumb feels better soon, ouch!

I was going to ask you about your sweater today! I hope your thumb feels better soon.

The socks look fantastic :)
