Clearing the Knitting Queue

The Little Tea Leaves Sweater is finished and I am glad to see the end of this!  I am not sure about the yarn...it is dense and the 'little' size 4 sweater is heavy.  I knit the ruffle for the sleeves and then grafted it with Kitchener stitch to the sleeves.  It isn't hard, just fussy.  The yarn is soft and has a sheen from the bamboo in it.  Sometimes I have to be done with something a while before I like it again! 
And sometimes, I like a knit all the way through and am sorry to see it finished! 
I whipped through a sock... 
With an afterthought heel placement so I can make another pair of yoga/flipflop socks. 
Like these!  I am experimenting with the heel finish as I wasn't topnotch thrilled with the last pair.
They work just fine, it's just not exactly what it should be.  I will see with this next pair!
That's all on my needles lately.
Socks can be a nice respite for me in the knitting world.
