Are you ready for this then? Look here at the sock...
Now you may think and wonder what all the fuss is about, but just look will you? I only cast this on 4 days ago. Now I'm a slow knitter, but have already turned the heel. I am so impressed with myself. So impressed that I'm already deciding which pattern to do next and which yarn to use. I am NOT going to knit this sock's partner just yet. Oh no, that would defeat the whole object of the Startitis Sock Club.
I am undecided as to pattern - this one, this one, this one or even this one. Personally, I'm moving slightly towards Monkey - loving Ziggy but would have to buy Silk Garden Sock weight. Nutkin has been on my Ravelry queue for ages and as to Pomatomus, well, I can but dream eh?!
I also have lots of patterns in the books and Ravelry is coming up with a gazillion patterns, most of which I need to make. This is fun - anyone else having a good time deciding on patterns?
I have also been busy making a cake. A friend I used to work with asked for a retirement cake for Howard - 'he's Scottish, plays the saxophone and is retiring from work. Surprise us with something.' Gee thanks Carol!
So here's Howard on top - round each side is a little message and model based on the writing on top 'Now you'll have plenty of time to...' ...play the saxophone, toss the caber, travel and try new sports and my own personal favourite...
See you another day - going to knit socks now!
