Three WIPs?

Here is my weekly update for the Business Casual KAL.  I've re-knitted the first sock completely.  I kept focusing on round 17 joint.  It wasn't good.  Now I feel good... except that I have a cold.  I took yesterday off (I mean a vacation day!) and woke up with a bad sore throat.  So, I knitted all day and finished one sock.  Today, I'm still at home.  My throat and my muscles are still aching.  No runny nose so far.  Just aching and feeling tired...  At least, it's good for my knitting when I'm awake.
 
Look at this!  I have three WIPs!  That means many FOs in late March, early April.  It will not become an habit, trust me but it sure makes for a pretty picture :-)
 
They are: Business Casual, Hedgerow and Saroyan.
 
I still have to graft the toes (and knit the second sock).  It fits perfectly:

And here is my work in parallel.  I have about one third done which isn't bad at all!

I hope you are all feeling better than me.  Have a great week everyone!

It sure does all make for a pretty picture! Your knitting is absolutely gorgeous. I am making something very similar to your piece in the last picture with the leaf edging. Only mine is a soft green alpaca and doesn't have the garter stitch border on the other side. I love the sock!!!
I hope you start to feel better as the day goes on. Stay tucked up and knit between naps. And make yourself some hot tea!

Oh wow, you certainly have been a busy knitter! Isn't Saroyan a fun knit? Each of these is going to make a very pretty FO! I really hope that you feel better very soon!

I started over on my Business Casuals because I wasn't in love with the yarn/pattern combo I had chosen. I've been meaning to knit saroyan for ages!

Love all three WIPs. It will indeed be a productive March and April for you. Love the new profile pic. You are lovely. :)
Hope you are feeling better.

Beautiful projects! I especially like that scarf. I'm longing to cast on a shawl, but I need to finish the baby blanket I'm working on first.

I hope you're feeling better!

These are all beautiful but my favorite are your business casual socks. I love the color and pattern!

I hope you're better! The only funny thing about being sick is we have more time to knit! :)
