Off the needles

Apparently I have been misleading you all into believing that there I don't do reverse knitting on my socks - So not true. These socks caused significant issues at various points of construction and there were times when there was serious competition between forward and reverse. They were socks that required a lot of attention. In an effort to complete projects I usually deal with the reverse action and reknit, if I stop to contemplate the task I am less inclined to fix it, I know I have several incomplete projects from my past for this reason.

Poppy socks designed by Anna Zilboorg from 'Knitting socks from around the world'. 
Knit in Patons Patonyle 4 ply red and cream - almost 50g of each.
Special socks for MsM's 'O' birthday
The grey and navy crochet ripple hat used all but a metre or so of each of those bits.
These are the true colours
Yay!
Thanks to Linda and Ana for the stash buster challenge I am making space for some fresh yarn.

Wishing you a wonderful week of creative fun.

That space could be for fleece you have spun lol. The socks are fantastic and well worth all the forwards/backwards knitting.

Love that the soles of those socks have different colours. Too cute!
