Triple Yarn Along

New yarns

The Waikiwi is a wool/nylon/alpaca/possum mix - very nice.
Happy by Wendy is a bamboo/nylon mix - too pretty.

New sock knitting in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 4 ply - Ghost and brick. 
(It even looks a little like the pattern!)

Another pattern from the Knitting Knee-Highs book by Barb Brown.

The sock I started on the weekend has grown some, the yarn is Moda Vera Noir from Spotlight.

The book - 'Blood on my Hands' a surgeon at war by Craig Jurisevic, is his own account of the time he spent in the Balkans during the Kosovo war in the late 1990's. Very interesting reading.

 A little more hooking - I am hoping for two mitts before the end of winter in a couple of weeks.

Hope your week is full of colour.

Joining the yarn along.
