Because 1 is not enough





I have been casting on again without finishing my in progress projects.
My sock is almost done - this is the second one. Yay - cosy toes in the very near future!
My mitt has progressed but as these are odd yarn leftovers, I am undecided whether I should finish this one or make the second one up to here so I can see how much of each colour I have left for the hand part.
Oh, and the green is the start of something new - guess all will be revealed when I get more done. So far it is very nice - I am liking the softness of the cable detail.
Reading another lovely tale set in the 19th century by the same author as last week - 'Hope' by Lesley Pearce. Mostly set in the UK it highlights the gap between the classes there in this period and the fact that married women had virtually no rights.
Interesting.
Joining in very late over at the Yarn along.


Edit: The sock pattern is Maid Marian Knee Highs from the book Knitting Knee Highs by Barb Brown.

The sock is such a pretty color - what is the pattern that you're using? Or are you making it up as you go along?
