Do you ever get in the mood whilst working on big knits, to just complete a few smaller ones to feel as though you have completed something. Well I have been that way lately, so I thought I would finally take a picture of my latest sock. I am still working on the foot, yes I have size 10 feet, and am nearly up to the toe. It is a 4 stitch pattern of K3, pl, then the next row is P1, K1, P3. I like the way it makes a single knit stitch stand out. The yarn is Opal Magic, cannot find what color though. I have had this in my stash for about 1 year. I like this blue a lot. It is darker in real life than in the photo though.
Next up are these 2 baby hats that I made yesterday. I had some leftover Zara wool, which I love because of its softness. They are pink and rose colors. This pattern is from Baby Cashmerino 2 book, and the size is 3 to 9 months. There are only 2 sizes, the next being 18 to 24 months. I might make a larger one for my friend's 7 month old daughter. Our next door neighbour is due in November, so there will be 2 new babies in the street. I might have to make a boy colorway next, just in case. Oh and a big congratulations must go out to Sharon on the arrival of her new baby daughter Bronte. Well that's all for now. Hope that you all have a good weekend.
