I've also started a pair of socks for my friend Charlotte. I re-knitted a pair for her recently, and she loved them, so these will be for her birthday in February. Just a plain vanilla pair, in a Trekking yarn. I love the purples and blues, and am interested to see how the colours will work out.
Crochet is high on the agenda this year, so I was delighted to see that on the Phoenix Knitting Forums, there's a 'crochet-along' just starting to make an Attic24 -inspired Ripple blanket. So far, all I've done is my test piece, to check out the pattern, and I amazed myself by ending up in the right place at the right time, with the right number of stitches!
I'm off to get on with a bit of hooky business now. Pop back soon. It'll be my 100th post and there'll be something yarny on offer for one lucky reader! Byeeeee! (Atchoooooooo!!!)
