Ha ha, first sock finished. I quite like it but have decided that it's not for me. Thus I am going to give it (and it's potential partner) away as a gift. Hence the length of the foot, it's a bit big for me and my teeny tiny tootsies. Hope it fits, I don't know the size feet of the recipient, but I know they're quite long (well they'd have to be, she's a tall lady and if she had little feet she'd fall over!).
I quite liked the pattern, it repeats over four rows and is pretty straight forward; once I'd got the hang of it it wasn't difficult to remember. The lace has turned out better than I hoped when I first started despite the bobbly nature of the yarn. You can see all the technical details on the previous post when I started the socks.
Here's to the second one.
Still haven't got the new yarn for my Haagebutte Clapotis (which I discovered from the KnitCast podcasts is actually pronounce "Clapotee", bet you all knew that already huh?) but I'm told that it's now on order so with luck I'll be able to pick it up next week. It would have been quicker to order it myself direct from "Get Knitted", but I'm saving myself the postage costs and the possibility of it going missing in the mail. (Not that I'm cheap or owt like that!).
I've found a new online knitting magazine (well new to me) whilst blog browsing. It's called Spun Magazine and it's based in Toronto. I found it through Whip up, which has some fantastic links on it; well worth a look. I'm dying to try the home made bath bombs! (Hope that last line doesn't get my blog picked up and investigated by the secret service! (That's probably compounded the matter!)
Hmm, better stop while I still have my liberty.
