february socks little and large, jitterbug and more:)
A mix of things today for you,
I finished a pair of socks for February and a baby sock:) I'm hoping that it helps prevent second sock syndrome Maylin:))
Yarn was from Maylin for February or I thought it was. After checking out the hospice yarn drawer I find I've made a mistake. Maylin's lovely tiger stripe is still patiently sitting awaiting a turn. Blame it on the fact that when I cast on these socks I did grab the yarn in the dark. Yours will be knit up soon Maylin.
As you can see I have started another sock, no big surprise there then:)
Yarn is posh Lucia , shade Dunes. Gifted by Kerrie from Hipknits. Doesn't it remind you of new spring grass and the new growth on trees?
I am on with the second sock for the mixed colours, its just that I seem to "need" 2 different socks on the go at once. The mini sock is sitting on one of Mr Mog's latest idea, mini sock blockers. Aren't they cute?
The luscious berry yarn is Jitterbug by Colinette and a gift from Maylin for me, not the hospice:) I think it may turn into socks for me:)) I love the colours in this skein.
BTW the lucia yarn, I wound it using my new Sunflower swift from Hannah and doesn't it make winding easy when you have one? It took no time to wizz through the skein.
Definately an improvement on the old way.
No news from the hospital on the last scan so looks like the radiotherapy is a go for 26th February. A relief as Mr Mog is starting to get quite anxious about it. We are hoping to go to Cumbria tomorrow to see Mr Mog's mum, hopefully another lovely day like today weatherwise.
next Thursday we are going to Glastonbury:)))))))))))))))
A dear friend has arranged a couple of nights B&B for us as a cheer up for Mr Mog before the marathon at the cancer centre. Really unbelieveably kind of her and we can't wait. Taking my socks to work on of course:)
