The day got away from me again, but I did make a little bit of progress with both my socks and my doily.
I switched knitting needles for the socks. I had been watching an Arne & Carlos YouTube video in which they were knitting with Prym ergonomic needles. I went shopping online, and the needles arrived today. The center of each needle is triangular, and the tips have a slight bulb shape. I've only knit one round with them, but they seem pretty nice.
