Montavilla & Spiral Bound

I have begun the Montavilla Market Bag from KnitPicks. I loved the colors of the organic cotton and though this was a good way to use all 4!

I also took a trip to FEDEX-Kinkos and fixed up some of my favorite books so they can now lie flat! I had been toying with this idea for a very long time, now, but had always chickened out. I recently saw some photos and decided it was finally time to take the plunge. I couldn't be happier. The books came out fantastically.

Glynis: 4 pattern repeats complete

I am working on Glynis, the first pattern in Cookie A's new book, Sock Innovation. I LOVE her patterns - they are absolutely ingenious. I just finished Pomatomus (my ravelry link), which was a birthday gift for my mom. I plan on making another pair for myself. Pomatomus is a free pattern on Knitty and can be found here.

Here's my progress on Glynis:
