The purple “Twisted Mockery” socks continue, I knit the heel flaps at the weekend and they continue to be lovely and the yarn continues to be a joy to knit with and I continue to think if I can get through some more of my stash I’ll join Ripplescrafts sock yarn club again. Project page here
As you can see I decided to go for a slip stitch heel for the sturdiness and the cushioning. I love the way the ribbing goes to a point at the back, this is a great pattern and I really recommend it.
My second project is a new one. It has been in my queue pretty much since I started knitting and joined Ravelry in 2008 along with the queues and project pages of pretty much every other knitter on there! It’s a February Lady Sweater, I felt a seamless cardigan was necessary after the Blasted Cardigan of Doom and am using the Felted Tweed Aran I got in the sales. The yarn looks grey here (as well as out of focus, oh dear!) but I assure you it’s a lovely shade of sage green. Roll on spring, more daylight hours and hopefully fewer grey days where what light there is just isn’t enough. Project page here
