THERE'S A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING...
At long last ( yes, it's been quite....a......while!) Mr Snoops has requested a pair of socks to wear with his walking boots. Bearing in mind they'll do a lot of walking, I thought it best not to use my scrummy skeins. Instead, I'm using up some Regia Design Line from my stash. It's definitely not a favourite yarn to work with, but it is hardwearing. I'd like his first experience to be a good one, so that it can be happily repeated!
I'm used Violet Green's sock generator to produce the pattern and cast on 68 stitches for his size 9 foot. It's the most basic sock pattern you could possibly knit, but that suits me fine for some post report writing blot out knitting. Yes, they are done and dusted for another year!
Our son had an orchestral concert at Snape Maltings this weekend and so spent a couple of nights with us. He brought Sophie along too! I love having a little bit of 'just us', Sofie time. She is excellent company and we always have lots of fun. Just before her bedtime yesterday evening, Sophie helped Grandma to water the pots and we took some photos. Love colour in the garden!
Have a good week everyone!
