Tidying up and casting on
There wasn't room for Vera in the Stash basket anymore. Things had reached pretty drastic proportions, she was not happy at being usurped by a Rabbit and was demanding action.
So I took my life in my hands and emptied the entire contents on the floor determined to tidy up. It got sorted, re-arranged, tidied and put back. Well, some of it did, 2 whole carrier bags just couldn't fit in the basket (so they have now been relocated to the airing cupboard!)
It doesn't really look a whole lot different, except from the very happy Monkee sitting on top! Welcome home Vera!
And yes, I've cast on something else again. I mean, who on earth could resist these socks? Not me for one, so I ordered the pattern and cast on the very day it arrived. This is a wonderful pattern, most of it being knit on normal straight needles, dpn's only coming in for the heel, toe and ribbing. I love this pattern. Really and truly love it. And it grows quite quickly too - I only started this last Saturday. Posh Yarn Sophia . Is there a more perfect sock yarn? It's made me think of all sorts of other possibilities too (Harlequin socks in lots of different colours? Boy Racer socks in black and white squares?)
If you haven't made a pair of these socks, I urge you to give them a go. Is there a knit along for these? Anyone want to start one if not? I am very enthusiastic about these, can you tell? It is now at the very top of my favourite sock pattern list.
