Well, there it is for all to see. The lucky winner of two balls of scrumptious Mini Mocchi is Pixie over at The Crafte Nook. Congratulations to Pixie. Thanks to all of you who stopped by and left me a lovely comment. It's always so much fun to make new bloggy connections.
This past week has been a particularly dull and gloomy one here in my little corner of the UK. I am thankful for an extra day to the weeekend though! I could get easily accustomed to working a four-day, rather than a five-day, week. We went to the coast yesterday, to blow the cobwebs away and give Oscar a seaside run, but it was so, so bitterly cold that we didn't stay long; just long enough for some fish and chips and a quick, brisk walk. It did give me knitting time in the car though and after another bash this morning, I have now finished my gorgeous Delphinium Roger Socks. I have to say that both the yarn and the pattern are two of favourites.
I shall certainly be casting on another pair very soon. I'm just considering my next pair of socks and I think I may well be casting on some Waffle Creams, the March pattern from Anne Hanson's BNKC . I haven't made a yarn choice yet, but it may well be the little grey beauty below.
These skeins are all Angel 4ply sock from the Natural Dye Studio, in colourways Heather, Graphite and Atlantis. It is a mix of 70% alpaca, 20% silk and 10% cashmere and so, so soft! I'll let you know my choice next time!
I'll leave you with a couple of moody shots taken from the car window on the way home yesterday. The sky may have been dark and grey, but the magnificent yellow of the oilseed rape brightened up the landscape, like a canary yellow patchwork. Just glorious!
