SOCKS...I made so many pairs last year that the pattern was indelibly ingrained in my mind. I've promised to make some for a kind blogger friend whose organised a thoughtful project... I need some too...The first pair is on the needles. I'm using some randomly died sock yarn from here because it's a cool colour and because it's 75% wool and 25% polyamide, nice and soft but won't wear too quickly. I go through tons of socks...all that running about in stocking feet. The pattern is my favourite Quickie Socks in The Joy of Sox (love that title).
My annabel pullover's almost finished and I can't wait to start wearing it. Just one more sleeve to knit and thread in those pesky yarn ends. Like the annabel cardigan, the garter stitch makes it a little bulky and because of the boxy unshaped body, it's not the most flattering sweater. But it's going to be so cosy and comfy to wear. It took hardly any time to make and half the amount of yarn I expected...so there's lots spare...Just think how many socks I could make...
There's been little time for reading lately except for catching up on friends' blogposts. Oh and Hannah's latest article about the Bristol school of artists on The State of the Arts magazine where she's the Museums, Galleries and Exhibition section Editor.
I'm proud of my little bean...
Best get knitting those socks in time for Thanksgiving.
I'm joining with ginny and nicole to share projects.
Are you coming along for a peek?
