Finished the socks I was knitting at last. They started out as Crusoe but I had to frog them as they were waaaaay too small (that pattern must have been written by someone whose feet had been bound or a VERY loose woman).
Anyhoo, finally frogged them and went back to the tried and tested free pattern that came with the Opal sock wool. I can now practically knit this one in my sleep. In fact I managed to knit from the end of the shaping on the instep to the start of the toe decreases at a drivers' meeting at work on Friday evening (so it wasn't a complete waste of time).
As you can see I stuck to the rolled top from the Crusoe pattern 'cos I quite liked it as a bit of a change. I have loads of the wool left over which is Opal Hagebutte (Rosehip), and I think I may be able to get another pair out of it. Hope so I think it's lovely. I may even go back to the shop where I got it and see if they have any more. I quite fancy it for a scarf or a pair of gloves (or even both!).
Blogging seems to be a bit in the doldrums at the minute, don't know if it's the time of year or what but people don't seem to be posting as much (come back Tutley Mutley, we miss you!!!). Probably have better things to do now the weather is improving.
