My finished socks

Toddler sock

I finished the second sock for my toddler last weekend and he really likes them.  I’m happy that they aren’t too thick so I have no problem fitting his shoes over them.  Their feet are so small I was a little worried about the extra thickness of hand-knitted socks causing problems with the shoes.

I am being very good and also finished the second one of my husband’s socks.  I will not allow myself to start on anything new until this is done.  I better finish up fast – there are two many interesting projects sitting waiting for me to get started on them!

Other Work

I haven’t had a chance to post for a while, I’ve been busy working on a whole lot of non-knitting jobs.  All of my boys were on a mid-term break last week and we had fun with less to do.  It is amazing how little you end up doing in a day though if no one gets dressed until late morning!

I’ve been working on a lace summer knitting top that I have just finished – seems like a long way off before I’ll get a chance to wear it here though.  We had a brief glimpse of sunshine and warmth at the start of the week and it was gone before we got a chance to blink.

My little Opal  socks for my toddler are very nearly complete – just need to graft the toe of the second sock and weave in the yarn and I can post a photo of my proud little boy.

My first StitchNBitch

I got to go to my first stich ‘n bitch in Douglas last night.  I found out about it a few months ago but my smallest one wasn’t quite up to me going out at night.  Luckily he’s a bit older now and can manage just fine. Can see this becoming a regular thing – what indulgence, escaping from the children just to knit and chat!

Met some lovely ladies working on some beautiful projects.  For anyone in the Cork area it is at 7.30pm every Thursday at Costa Cafe, Douglas Court Shopping Centre.

Ann-Marie from Lavender Yarns was there with the latest Kilcarra yarn shade card – some great colours there!
