This is a work in progress I've already blogged about previously but no progress has really been made, I am however now ready to take it on and progress, it will be joining me on my holidays next week and I expect to have a lot more scarf to show you on my return! It's a lace scarf for my MiL for Christmas, it's what she asked for though admitedly not the colour she asked for…I just hope she likes it! She wanted red and I thought this yarn was red when I looked on the website but when it arrived I really liked the shade of pink and I know my MiL wears pink and looks good in pink as well.

Also in progress, as usual, socks! Less usually these are not socks for me (I'm rather selfish with my sock knitting!) they are for my friend at work's daughter (adult daughter so sadly not tiny, quick socks!). She asked me ages ago if I'd knit some socks for her and I foolishly said yes. She's not a knitter, she doesn't understand the time or work involved in sock knitting BUT I'm a soft touch. I said yes but I will not be saying yes to anyone else and this is the only pair she's getting. If she wants more I'll happily teach her how to knit them! I am rather loving the yarn, it's soft and lovely and I know the colours will be a big hit.

Also whilst it's not pink it is still a work in progress though only just (to be honest I just wanted to do a "la la la look what I finished knitting") my green shawl, all knit and cast off and ready to be blocked when I get home from work tonight.
I am having something of a dilemma now. The dark nights are drawing in, the sun is taking longer to rise in the morning and my opportunities to take pictures in natural light are greatly reduced. I managed these pictures this morning before work but it was only just light enough and it was rather a dull, greyish light. I'm trying to think about what I'm going to do about this over the winter. I don't want to use a flash, the one on my camera is good but the pictures aren't as nice as those in natural light. I think the only real answer is taking all my pictures at the weekend and saving them for multiple blog posts during the week. I can do that I suppose, I just like more frequent progress pictures. Oh well…my other option would be taking projects to work and doing the pictures outside at lunchtime but I'm not so keen on that idea. I suppose weekend pictures it is.
