WIP Wednesday: All About the Simple Knits

I started out the week in a most unusual way: by attending a training seminar downtown on Monday & Tuesday. For those of you who are new to my blog, I work from home doing a variety of things related to the yarn and fiber arts industry, and anything that requires me to be awake and out of the house before 10am is generally anathema to me...but occasionally I will make an exception and get outside of my comfort zone!

Trade shows and seminars such as the one I attended definitely mean that my brain power is sapped by the end of the day (and sometimes, from the get-go - I am truly not a morning person), so I tend to favor extremely simple projects to suit the occasion. Much progress was made to my Newborn Vertebrae in Anzula's Sebastian Yarn:
I also started a pair of tiny OMG Heel Socks using some self-striping yarn I'd dyed many years ago while working at Lorna's Laces; I'm hoping that the XS size option fits one of my nephews! These are a truly quick knit - I cast on for this sock yesterday during my lunch break and I am already blazing my way towards those toe decreases.
I'd love to know what's on your needles or hook this week!
