New project

And it's . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . a pair of socks!!!

Bugger me, who'd have thought it.

Here are Hedera , from the latest issue of Knitty. I'm knitting them in some Rowanspun 4 ply that I had in the stash (There you see I don't just buy it and hoard it away, I'm actually using some of it! So there!). It may look better in a plainer wool, or possibly a cotton mix in a plain colour, this is a bit bobbly and I feel that it detracts from the lace pattern. I'm also not 100% sure about the colour, but I'm quite enjoying knitting them so I'm going to carry on and if I decide they're not me I'll give them away.

Hi love the socks especially the colour, I haven't tried socks yet, maybe one day. Thanks for commenting on my blog, I don't get many so get very excited when someone leaves one. I don't get out
