A Pair of Socks!

Two Socks!

Two Socks!

I have been away to here …

I was in Paris!

I was in Paris!


Glastonbury Abbey

We spent all of July travelling – Paris, London, Bath, Cornwall and Hong Kong! We had a fabulous time. The weather was amazing – three weeks in England and only 1 day of rain!

I did take my knitting with me and did little bits here and there and finally finished the second sock at home.

The patten is Almondine from Sock Knitting Master Class and I used a Madelinetosh sock yarn (I think it’s Jade), which I got from here.

I have never been a fan of knitting charts – not that I have done much knitting that requires a chart – but this pattern has converted me. It was much easier to glance at the chart for instructions that to read the various Ps and YOs.

My next knitting project is another pair of socks for Miss P using this yarn. I’m going to make up my own pattern, but I plan on having owl cables┬álike these (I was so disappointed that this jumper didn’t fit either of my girls).
