Regarding DHs' Walking Socks he absolutely adores them. He loves the fact that I made & designed them just for him & was very amused by the comments about hiding the pics from other DH's!
His new pair are being steadily worked on but as I'm working on 2mm needles the progress is painfully slow:
Small Tiles toe up socks
The yarn is Lana Grossa Meilenweit Mega Boots Stretch which I bought whilst on holiday last year. The pattern is 'Small Tiles' from More Sensational Knitted Socks.
I've also found a partial solution to DDs' boredom & frustration caused by her broken foot:
Class sock from Sensational Knitted Socks
So far I've helped her with the cast on as she struggles with Long Tail, picked up the stitches on one side of the gusset & with rearranging the stitches on the needles. Since this photo was taken this morning she's finished the foot & started the toe decreases so next she'll be learning Kitchener Stitch! Not bad for an 11 year old
Finally I'm going to leave you with a new visitor to our garden:
We've been watching a pair of them for the last hour & think they're after the mice that are nesting in the undergrowth under the trees at the bottom of our garden.
I hope they don't keep us awake tonight!
