Go me! I finished the second sock this morning. I lurrrrve the colours in this yarn. I can't wait to wear them - I'm even feeling quite pleased that they're almost identical. I DO need to practice the kitchener stitch, my finishing is not great, but all in good time right?
Each sock takes one 50g ball of Patonyle yarn, and there is a reasonable amount left over from each ball, so I was doing a little web-crawling and found this pattern for Sock Wool Mitts ... well that's not what they're called, but play along with me :-) ... and my thoughts were that they'd be ideal for using up the remains of the sock wool.
I figure I'll probably make the wrist part a little shorter, just enough to tuck under a sweater while I'm out watching winter season netball or something. Anyways, just thought I'd share ... maybe it's just what you need for those sock leftovers?
It has been a very eventful couple of days. Yesterday afternoon my Sister-In-Law gave birth to a baby girl. She's the most darling tiny bundle, and is named Sophia Anna. Amy is so excited to at last have a little girl cousin. Sophia's big brother (at 15 months old) is Amy and Cam's only other cousin. We've given the new arrival some cute little gifties, but soon I'll get busy putting together a quilt for her.
And as if that wasn't exciting enough, last night Holly slipped out the front door while a parcel was being delivered. I didn't even notice her dash out. Soon afterward we realised she was missing, and we couldn't find her for three hours! We were getting really worried as we live quite close to a busy road, and she's been an indoor cat entirely, so she has no road sense. Martin eventually found her hiding down the drain at the side of the road out the front, which was such a relief. I know I wouldn't have slept a wink had we not found her.
I don't think I'll do any more knitting tonight, I feel like doing some tidying in the sewing room, and while I have that inspiration, I really should go with it!
