If you’re the lady we met on the train to Birmingham, and you’re here to check in on the socks I started, I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed today.
Sock knitting has been slowed down by the siren song of an aran weight cardigan for Button, that now only needs….you guessed it….buttons!
And swatching to find a yarn to make up a pattern that calls for Quince & Co…which would need importing and is also way beyond my budget.
But…I do have another, different pair of socks to share with you.
These have been done for a while and the husband is keen for me to get them photographed so he can have them back to wear.
I swear I don’t believe the weather will ever be anything else but grey here. The sun broke through for about 30 seconds, but by the time I’d set up the socks and the camera the heavens had opened again. So I’m sucking it up and sharing somewhat gloomy photos.
But even gloomy photos of socks can be cheery on the greyest of days. Especially when they bring to mind a roll of fruit pastille sweeties.
And now I’ve shared I can go back to knitting the anticipated, and very, very jolly socks that I started on the train to Birmingham.
