Work on the chenille jacket has pretty much ground to a halt. The thick yarn and needles were killing my hands, especially the first joint on my right ring finger. It's very sore; I can hardly open a jar with my right hand now. I'm still doing a few rows here and there, but I can't do much in one sitting. However, I just got an email from afghans for Afghans, and they need socks for kids at a school in Kabul. Since socks are knit on thin needles, I should have no problem making a pair or two. I need a new take-along project anyway. That scarf I was making is getting too big for my bag. I have some great self-patterning sock yarn in my stash. I bought it from Knit Picks when they discontinued some of their old colors. As always, when the socks are done, I'll post pictures.
