Finally finished footwear

This pair of socks has seen me through a house move and the first month of a new job. I’m very pleased to complete them and move onto something new. The pattern had just enough interest to keep me going. After the fourth time through knitting the main chart I can almost figure it out without reading every square.


These will be making their way to their rightful owner as soon as they’ve had a Soak.

In other news, here are a few little goodies from Christmas.

The yarn is the laceweight I got at Harrogate and received for Christmas from my lovely in-laws. It is from Eden Cottage Yarns. I’m thinking of using it for some sort of shawl or stole. Any ideas gratefully received.

The book was a surprise, since I’d completely forgotten it was on my Amazon wishlist. I haven’t had much time to read it yet, but it looks interesting. It does seem to rely on having a large amount of each yarn since the projects are mostly garments rather than socks, so I’m not sure whether it will help with using up my sock yarn. I do have another book for that, so it doesn’t really matter.

    I like looking back at my socks (and other things) and remembering what was going on in my life when I was knitting them…
