Pink sock

So here as promised is the knitting done at my brother's house. Well, on the train mainly. And what a quick knit it was, despite casting on 180 stitches for the top. I love this sock and will definitely make more. Youngest son modelled it, that's why it looks so huge. He was not impressed to be wearing a pink sock and wants you all to know that he doesn't normally wear that colour.

Isn't the yarn lovely? It's from Kerrie and I think is merino, but I've had it so long, I can't remember. I really like the way it's going in stripes. What a cool sock. Unless you're an 8 year old boy of course.

By popular demand I'll be showing you the cashmere I've got for Tipsy tomorrow. Daren't take a picture of it when husband is around - he would completely freak out if he saw that much cashmere. I have cheated a bit and already cast on, so I might give you a treat and show you that too. Oh I'm just too good to you! Starting again on the cake orders too after a break in the summer, so knitting progress will be slow again.

such a pretty sock! and it looks like you have yarn over so you could now make a blue pair with a pink frill?

looking forward to seeing the beginnings of The Big Project. You are so brave and intrepid! :)

I love those socks - especially the little contrasting ruffle although I can understand why an 8 year old chap might find them distinctly un-cool! Glad you had a great day in London - sounds like a fab birthday treat!

Hmmmm. Taking KNITTED monkeys for a gentle session of hair rippage is cruel is it?

But forcing an eight year old boy into very pretty pink and baby blue frilly socks isn't??

Right. Just so we're straight on that.
