I finished my Christmas socks. The yarn is the Christmas yarn from WYS. I just did a plain sock – twisted rib cuff, eye of partridge heel flap and I used Kate Atherley’s wedge toe instructions (I like how the toe is rounded rather than pointy).
This is definitely a slow process… although that means I get to watch more War and Peace and my guilty secret viewing Nashville(this is so trashy and melodramatic – love it).
I successfully completed the waist decreases and I am just onto the bust increases – I’m thinking of putting a life line in for when everything goes pear shaped.
There is a nice rhythm to this and (so far) the yarn has been angelic (except for the first ball which fell apart). I haven’t quite got to the point where I could do this out and about and keep track of the lace pattern.
The other day I succumbed to the lure of the yarn shop and bought two new sock yarns
I couldn’t really help myself …but they are beautiful.
It was knitting last night at Woolly Lattes. I worked on my scarf – I think I did about eight rows – chatted to my friend and bought more sock wool (it’s Filatura Di Crosa – Maxime Print in shade 5062).
