Hooray! Something has been accomplished at last. Mr Snoops now has a fourth pair of socks, despite 'not wanting a pair' until a couple of years ago. He has now seen the light and his three current pairs are always in use. This pair are for Christmas, so they have been secreted away. I really like this simple rib pattern, as the socks always fit well and are perfect travel knitting.
It may have been a foolish move to add two more projects to my already way too little knitting time, but they are both important and both need to be started pretty soon. First up are these three scrummy balls of Rowan baby merino and silk; so so soft! They are all ready and waiting for those shiny silver circulars to get click clacking away to conjure up a simple little sweater for Zelda's baby boy, due in a couple of weeks time. She is a very lovely work colleague of my younger daughter, who I met this weekend for the first time, but always hear lots about.
Here we go! The next pair of travel socks to hit the needles. This pair will be made using my preferred simple rib pattern mentioned above and are indeed another Christmas gift; this time for my son. Better get knitting!
