A little to report: Horcrux sock #1 is finished. It's shorter than I thought but that's ok. And I am told that Harry's scar is a Horcrux so that explains the 'lightning bolt'. I always forget the entire plotline as soon as I finish an HP book.
Here's my first Cashmere Aran Afghan square. Not super exciting, but I picked an easy one for the first one. And even with it's being easy, I made a mistake (or as I prefer to call it a 'design option') and did the center panel in stockinette stitch instead of garter stitch. I like it better anyways.
And Katie, I got all the stuff to finish your prize, so as soon as the hooligans all go home, I'm working on it!
