The plan to keep some vanilla socks stashed away for some quick knitting is great as I can talk and knit at the same time. My friend Fiona asked if I could teach her to knit socks – my answer : of course! So next Friday, I’ll try have some half-done socks to show her the picking up of the gusset and Charlene Schurch’s book on making socks with me.
I have been rolling along apace with my Betty Mouat blanket. I really love it and I’m enjoying looking through my stash for yarns to include. The only trouble with making this is now I’m thinking about making another one already and have the colours all planned in my head(!) I am also spurred to keep on knitting because I am cold! I am so cold that I want to knit a blanket and but I am also cold whilst I knit so I need a blanket to keep me warm!
