yarn pron and FOs not just socks:))
A lot of pictures for you today:) Lets start at the top should we? Ladies and gentlemen I give you sock pair #2 for January. Well at least almost sock 1 of sock pair 2 if yousee what I mean? Using the Admiral R DRuck from Wye Sue and it knits up beautifully. Haven't tried this yarn before but will again. It feels so smooth working in this. As you can see I'm staying with the tried and tested simple sock:) It epitomises a UK winter for me, the ice cold, the blue skies on frosty days, the grey of the rainy days. Perfect for wolf moon:)
Following on from that is the felted ear flap hat. Hasn't it felted well? Size to fit a teenager I think, too small for me but I do have a big head:)) Modelled by Lydias part sister(VBG) Lucretia. Sadly Lucretia can only take on small modelling roles but she does it admirably.
She displays the latest Calorimetry
This was made in Colinette mohair because I wanted something warm and vibrant. I think you will agree with the vibrant?
Next picture is some yarn I purchased from Germany trekking. I'd seen some gorgeous juicy socks on Jane Yarnstorms blog
loved the colour and thought they would be really cheery for Mr Mog to wear, and trekking seemed so apt for his trek each day for radiotherapy:)
Somehow another colour slipped in there also:)
Next up we have 2 balls of Admiral be druckt , the orangey one, and Admiral R Druck the multi one. from Yvonne
Yvonne as you know was my last SP:)
Final picture is from Maylin
Tiger feet . I've seen this knit up and love it:)
THanks everyone for your most generous donations I appreciate it.
Bless you all for being so thoughtful.
Today it is raining once more so no promenade methinks. I'm going to get back to the sock knitting for a change:)
Seemed funny last night knitting something other than socks, must come up with a simpe felted bag pattern to do with the loft I showed you the other day. Any suggestions?
