Lovely - thanks

A lovely package arrived from Katherine this week - I won her giveaway of the pattern which she has finished with, she made it not once but twice. Oh and she included some little extras to accompany the pattern - gorgeous red buttons, cute stitched note card, chocolate and a wooden handmade sew on.
Lovely thanks Katherine.
The first sock is complete. Nice if a little on the snug side!
The clever heel construction has the cable continue around each side of the ankle.

This month's previously 'resting' project - just happens to be another blanket using a 4 ply acrylic/nylon mix - lucky really or there could not be any progress while the sun continues to shine in this part of the world. This picture was taken when I pulled it out of the project bag and it is currently around 75cm square. The centre is a multicoloured yarn crocheted across and back in rows, then I am using complimentary colours for the outer rounds.

This will not be a big blanket but I have a wide border pattern chosen to finish it off, just a few more rounds before I start on that.
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are.

Lovely mail box contents. Interesting sock, the cable going around is very nice. Have fun getting the latest resting project up and running and on the finished list.

oh how can you knit and crochet in this Melbourne Heat?? I can barely sit down still, let alone pick up the needles. Love the XOX sock, can't wait to see them.
