Who would have thought that we would have been enjoying a BBQ today, after the shocking run of weather over the last few weeks. But BBQ we did and very nice it was too. It's been a busy week and a busy weekend, with a big family wedding yesterday. The sun shone, the setting was beautiful and a good time was had by all.
Knitting has again taken a back seat this week, as I struggle to keep on top of the ever growing list of demands made of me at school. Sophie's little blue cardi now has a back and I have cast on the right front, but I have to say, although the finished design is lovely, moss stitch is pretty mind numbing...... and not in a good way!!! So, progress is slow.
I managed to cast on a pair of colourful, easyknit socks for my eldest daughter today. She and her husband have been staying for the weekend and she requested 'another pair in something bright'. So, here we go!
These will make perfect car knitting for our journey up to Manchester next weekend. It's a great pattern and makes a well fitting pair of simple ribbed socks. The pattern is 'Wise Hilda's Basic Ribbed Sock' by Kate
Atherly and the yarn is an olsd staple for easy socks, Regia Design Line.
I'm pretty sure I should manage to complete these by the end of next weekend, so that I can leave them with her. I really need to clear all my WIPs before casting on anything new, but I do like to always have an easy pair of socks on the needles, to take with me out and about.
Have a good week!
