does not always equal quicker!
(warning - more unfinished sock pictures)
The mother had ordered a pair of socks for gifting towards the end of this month, then asks if they are ready this past Tuesday - well no, not even started! Fortunately I had a) finished knitting the last pair (they're still waiting for the ends to be woven in), and b) made a decision about pattern and yarn (there wasn't enough of my first choice of yarn) so I cast on pronto.
A conservative pattern but interesting enough to keep me knitting round and round.
Making good progress and then this - Mess!
One went the wrong way, it took a while to get the stitches back in order again, but I am once again heading the right direction.
Using my favourite Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 4 ply in the purple storm colour way - the sky was a very similar colour earlier today when it was actually looking like Autumn is putting in an appearance in this part of the world.
Design is Diagonal Rib Socks by Ann Budd, in a free Ebook from Interweave (they have resources for all kinds of crafts).
The other news here is that the Mint and Citrus blanket is complete and waiting for weaving in of ends and a new previously resting crochet project has seen some progress this week.
Hope you have time for a little creating this weekend.
