Slowly But Surely

Yes... I'm still knitting away at those socks that I started on Saturday. I'm nearly up to the heal in my first one! Because these socks are knitted in a sport weight yarn (very fine, like a 4 or 5 ply) they seem to be taking a long time. I'm absolutely loving the way it's knitting up with thin chocolate stripes, who would've thought. I got DH to do a bit of modeling for me to let everyone else see how this gorgeous yarn knits up.

I told you, isn't it just divine!! Here's what the sock looks like without the model. Lovely stripes of chocolate brown unevenly spread out over the pattern, I just love it...


It's the easiest pattern, just knit 2 purl 2 round and round and round. I'm yet to read the instructions for the heal but hopefully they're just as easy.

I have to let everyone know this gorgeous bootee pattern that I found on Kylie's blog. She left me a comment a couple of days ago so I went and checked her out. OMG she has the most adorable blog, really worth a look. There's heaps of great projects on there, plus links to some really fantastic patterns.

Today's 'Get Happy Now' Tip #22 - Don't expect people to accept you despite your faults. Address them. You'll like yourself more, too.

  5. Hi Ab,
    I actually think that these socks are going to be a pressy for someone, I can't tell because they might be reading. But yes they would've looked good under my boots (sigh).
    Thanks for noticing my new look!
