Knitting progress

Haven't been knitting as much as usual in the last little while as I've been reading my way through the recently published seven volume Technic Civilization Saga (I had previously read all the Flandry stories and the Van Rijn novel "The Man Who Counts", but all the rest is new to me ... absorbing Anderson's entire Technic "history" in chronological order is fascinating), but a few projects have managed to grow a bit. Brown socks have had their heels turned and are now progressing up the ankle with brioche-stitch-in-the-round (easy to learn as I'd already mastered the back-and-forth variety) ... looks like ribbing to the casual glance, but the different construction means it's MUCH stretchier and far less compressive. Thick red socks (for those -30C days) are getting close to heel turning, and Lintilla has gained a few more ruffles. On the future project prep side, I've been reading the fitting/shaping portion of Ysolda Teague's Little Red in the City and have all her required measurements collected and calculations done with an eye to getting started on her "Skelf" pattern soon.
