I am thrilled I was able to knit four pairs of socks (one pair was a baby pair) this month, especially as I went through a few days of the stomach flu followed by a week with a bad cold. Although I didn't go to work on those days I was too sick to knit so it was a wash. I'm feeling better now and have begun the first pair of socks for November. I'm also looking at some other projects including charity knitting and making doll quilts.
