So, darn, proud.
My first ever pair of hand knit socks. While not perfect, especially the toe seam, I LOVE them.
They are an 80% merino/20% nylon blend
And oh, so comfy and cozy. It is a rare time I say I am happy for cooler weather, but today I am thankful for the opportunity to wear them!
The top photo is the truer colour.
I need to make some significant progress on my hexie quilt so I will resist the urge to immediately cast on the next pair.
Working away on my Buggy Barn quilt for our Festival of Trees, 12 down and 8 to go, then much trimming and rearranging until I get a pleasing layout. Hope to have it off to be quilted by my friend Carole by some time next week.
My goal this week is two blocks a day, so guess where I am headed?
