I love the colours in this yarn but it was really difficult to match sock 2 to sock 1 - as you can see in the right hand sock there are stripes not blends. Sadly I couldn't avoid this as the yarns didn't run in the same order and I ran out of orange and pink.
The photo makes it look like I have massive feet - they are 6 and a half - the rib/cable pattern makes the leg look thinner - but they fit like a glove - or a sock!
I have already blogged about this in detail here. Just to say it was my first attempt at artwork and I am quite pleased with the result.
I made a little threaded necklace for my friend for her birthday.
Continuing my 80s revival - I am knitting another summer top from the decade of power dressing and shoulder pads!
This time it isn't a pattern from the stash I found in my attic (Memory Lane) it is a pattern I found in a charity shop whilst I was looking for vintage patterns.
The pattern is from the Sirdar Sunseeker Collection - it was originally knitted in Sirdar's Linen Touch, so I have chosen Patons Linen Shadow for my twenty first-century version.
No progress - this WIP is now my travelling WIP and will only be completed on long journeys.
