A fine accounting

After Fridays quiet contemplation, I hit the deep archives of WIPs and took a good look.  

I really could use more socks so that was the first thing that came to my hand.  
I was just about to turn the heel on the second sock when I began.  Finis!

I went through the projects in the rest of this basket.  2 shawls and a pair of bed socks.  I picked up the bedsocks to finish.  

Done two!  On this one,done heelless in a DK weight yarn, I had only an inch of the second sock done.  

I think I am going to keep working on this basket.  There is a very interesting shawl in the bottom of this particular basket, the Edmonton River Valley Shawl.  The last time I worked on this project was a very long time ago, at least eighteen months.  I had a wee problem on the third last row of the border and then lost a few stitches off the needles.    I took a little break that became a very long break.  

I'm going to pick this up today.  I'll pull back the whole edging.  Sad I know, but I really have no idea where I am.  I have a much better feel for the edging now and I am certain I will do a better job this time than I was doing the first time round.  The only thing I am really worried about is, what size needles was I using and did I bother to write that down and tuck that little detail in the bag?   

Here is hoping.

I love those hidden treasure hunts. Unfortunately for me, most of my time-out knits are that way for a reason.
