I managed to knit some lovely socks on holiday. Mr Josiekitten asked me (a little sarcastically I felt!) if I'd got enough wool, when he saw the bags that I extracted from the suitcases! I do like to have some choice, so I knew I'd packed more than I needed. The first pair of socks I made were Waving not Drowning , using yarn from WildFireFibres. I love the colours - they look so pretty! I make no apologies for the 'Yarn Harlot-esque' photo. The beach really was that empty, and the sea was warm. The colours reminded me of bougainvillea, so I took some 'arty' photos of the flowers growing near our balcony. These socks will always remind me of hot, sunny days in Greece, and I will wear them on cold, grey winter days to keep me smiling!
The wonderfully snuggly 'Haven' scarf was also on my holiday knitlist, using Rowan Cocoon yarn. Just the name makes me feel all warm and cosy. I came up with what I thought was a rather witty name - a 'Kos-y' scarf, since it was going to be knitted on the island of Kos. ( I know, I'm easily amused!) I only managed 3 pattern repeats as it was a bit too warm to knit with, and also wasn't as portable! I can't wait to get it finished, as it's so cold and gloomy here on the north Norfolk coast. I'll post a picture when it looks more impressive!
