Socks on time

Hello my lovelies,

Well what a horrible old day it is today then. Pouring with rain here so gonna stay in and have me some lovely crafty time with my knitting and possibly may make a couple of birthday cards for friends who have birthdays next week.

Got up very early again and sat peacefully knitting for an hour. Oh i so love the early morning when all is quiet in the house and it could just be only me in the whole world. A perfect way to start the day.

Did a three mile very wet run with Charlie choco. Another good way to start the day if you have the energy. Most sensible people would still be in their beds on a sunday morning. I do love getting out for a run and try to go at least three times a week if poss. Its a really good time to think things through and plan my next crafty make he he.

I thought today i would show you some socks that i have knitted over the last year.

This pair were the first that i ever knitted and my first ever attempt at using double pointed needles and knitting in the round. Takes a while to get the hang of it because its a little bit fiddly at first but once you get going... bobs your uncle....and you never look back. WARNING sock knitting is addictive and the choice of yarns.....need i say more....simply amazing.

These bluey green socks are ace and my absolute faves in the whole world. My beloved, bless him, got me the yarn and knitpro double pointed needles for christmas and i sat all of boxing day knitting these because my villiage had a power cut that lasted all of christmas and boxing day. It was a pretty miserable christmas for most of my neighbours, but little old me was quite happy and cosy sat in front of the wood burner knitting socks with my fingerless gloves on and a rug over me knees.


I thought i might sort out my stash boxes today but only got as far as photographing them MMM tut tut. Today would have been a perfect day to have a sort out but im in the cant be bovvered frame of mind. Lazy article my nan would have said.

Tat ta for now my lovelies, im off to get crafty. Hope you are all having a lovely restful weekend.
