We've been away for the weekend & I packed some long abandoned projects to keep me busy. One has already been finished & my Baby Ribbon blanket above is near completion as I'm working the border. Each round is taking over 20 minutes so progress isn't fast.
I've concluded that I have too many projects on the go and am trying to do something about it....
Pattern: David's Toe Up Sock Cookbook for the structure & maths with Diagonal Lace as the pattern. The construction of the two patterns is the same but I wanted the reassurance of the formula from the first. Yarn: 2 skeins of Koigu KPM 115711 Time: March 22nd - May 4th 2009 Needles:2 x 2.25mm 60cm Knit Picks (or KnitPro as they're now known) circular needles. Technique: Two at a time toe up with a Turkish cast on & a very stretch cast off. .
see how well they fit my feet!

and finally the blocked shot:

The colour is a bit dark in the last photo & more accurate in the others.
I'm pleased that I've finally made a pair of socks with this yarn that I'm satisfied with. I've already cast on another pair but will be frogging them later as the toes need another plain row between increases so in the meantime I cast on for a quick project last night.....
We've had our first caravan holiday of the year and am now heading home. DH and I relaxed whilst DD typically found loads of reasons to strop. My purple koigu socks are finished and I'm about to swatch for my next pair whilst DH takes us home.
