I think I've figured out how to do the Log Cabin pattern without the pattern. Will put the book on the list for Christmas, because I've seen some of the other items other knitters have built. Looks pretty good!
We went for a walk last night, left before five and were home by six. We also stopped for dinner, so part of that hour doesn't count. I still have sore muscles. I've been using Tiger Balm and Bengay on them, which helps quite a bit.
I did manage to knit 30 rows last night on the scarf. Hope to have it done by the end of the month. I’ve started on Grilltech’s heel; hope to have them done by next week. Then I can get started on my socks.
