Well, it's been a busy half-term, with several days spent with two of our children and their families in Manchester. It was Sophie's fourth birthday; where does the time go! Since our return, I've been very busy doing anything that I can think of to avoid writing school reports. Guess what..... I've succeeded!
I just love these London Gap socks. The colours are all those of the London Underground lines. Clever! They make very addictive knitting, as there's always the 'just one more stripe' fairy whispering in my ear. It works though, as these were a breeze to knit and I'm so happy with the finished result.
Nothing so satisfying as grafting a toe and hey presto, the item is complete. Love it!
Such a clever pattern, as it ensures that no purl stitches are ever two coloured, so the colour changes are neat and single coloured.
I have three more skeins of Trailing Clouds lovely stripy yarn in my stash, so I may well need to cast on another pair very soon. The first is another skein of Mind the Gap.
This next beauty is in the 'Lipstick, Powder and Paint' colour way...
....... and lastly this really pretty skein in 'primary/secondary' colour way. I LOVE them all!
I've also managed to get going again on my 'Movie Night Socks' by Anne Hanson.
Sunshine, garden, kindle and knitting...... the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon and to ensure the 'no report writing' regime continues!
Think I'm going to have a busy week........ report writing! ;-)
