Back on the game
Pattern source: Sockopus Sock Club Third installment, designed by Diane Mulholland
Comments: I adore these socks! They're the first sock club kit I managed to finish in time for the next one. The pattern is easy, yet entertaining. And those colours are just gorgeous together, don't you think?
I've also been working on these
It's Charade in some Koigu KPPPM that I've had in my stash for about 2 years. The pattern is perfect for knitting on the go as it's so simple. I simply took the stitch pattern and knit it toe-up with short row toes and heels, easy peasy. I cast them on because I was in need of some easy knitting for when I went to Brighton with Socktopus knitters on a day out. It was great fun and I got to meet other knitters and drink Pimms and knit by the seaside. Totally worth dragging myself out of bed at 7 am.
And because I've been so bored this week, I figured some more attention demanding projects would be appropriate, hence...
Eunny Jang's Bayerische Socks
These two projects have been on my queue for ages, so I finally bit the bullet and cast on 96 stitches for the sock and 375 for the shawl, which took quite a while. So far they've been immensely enjoyable and they remind me how much I enjoy reading charts. Seriously.
Anyway I have to move on Tuesday, so this weekend will be spent packing and knitting. Since we've lost our internet connection I shouldn't have much problem focusing on packing, though my knitting might be distracting enough.
Oh, I'm blogging from a friend's place, by the way. She lives closer to John Lewis and I wouldn't want to miss first day of the sale! I even woke up before 7 this morning, early morning blogging is truly a rare feat here at Chez Yuvee.
