Slowly, slowly...

I have been using small snippets of time to make progress on the the sewing project, but I've not yet taken a picture so you won't see it here!

There was a little action with pretty coloured cottons to add to the sewing.
I did have fun with my needles and hook - and still there is a mountain of cotton colours to left. Lucky I guess as I'd like to make some more of these.
Quick to knit or crochet in all the colours. 

While out socialising with fellow creative types last weekend I managed to finish two socks.
No not a pair!
On the left - Corn mint leaves by Qianer and on the right Layna shorty in my size.
I do like to mix up the colours and textures though and they provide entertainment for when there is not much else happening.

Just so I don't get bored with the second socks of those 2 pair, which I have already cast on by the way, I started a little slipper to keep my toes warm on these cool evenings that have returned to my part of the world.
Steps to elegance is a test knit - both quick and fun
I enjoyed working this one up - though the use of a multicoloured yarn for the contrast colour may not have been my best choice, the scrap was there and I'm trying to move some of those along.

Hope your weekend is filled with all the colours.

Both sock styles are rather lovely. I love knitting with cottons, they're pretty awesome. You're the sock girl for sure.
Cheers, Anita.
