Postie has been very good to me this week. Look at what he brought yesterday - a box all the way from America with 10 beautifully knitted squares inside, a bag of chocolates (soooo delicious!) and a very pretty butterfly card. Thank-you so much Pink Sky. I really must get round to doing the final squares blanket for St Dunstan's. I'm so slow though - seem to have started one too many projects as ever!
Postie also dropped this round for me - he knows not to bring yarn round when Mr Stressy is at home, just to save my marriage!!! This is Charlotte (Posh Yarn of course) in Will O'Wisp - such an aptly given name. Will be casting on a sock fairly soon with that one! The photo does not do it justice - lovely subtle colours, so, so gorgeous.
But look here at this will you. The first Posh Poppy Sock has been done. I had to change the toe (it would have been an inch longer if I'd followed the instructions) but I love it so much. The pattern is bonkers. Stark staring bonkers. I love the bobbles, I love the 'poppies', I love the top ribbing, the line round the heel, the fancy heel, the thick chequerboard sole, the mad toes... it's great! Fits well too - I went up a size with the needles, which may be why the foot was long, but smaller needles would have made it too tight.
Anyway, for now, I just intend to admire the sock. It will not be getting a partner for quite some time. I have 5 Mystery Blanket squares to do this month - very quickly before the next month's squares turn up!
