Some more things to show you.....

I have been taking a break from swapping lately, as I found it was beginning to feel a bit like a chore making and sending fbs rather than enjoying it, and because of that I wasn't enjoying my letter writing either - basically it all got too much. So I decided to take a break until I feel up to starting again. It means that my friends and swappers will have to wait a little for my replies - but those who read my blog will know that I haven't forgotten them, I am just trying to feel like myself again.

In the meantime I have made another pair of socks (!) and finished those during Leah's nap yesterday afternoon. I was pleased with the yarn, not bad for a find in Austria!



it's quite hard to photograph anything with the way the weather has been lately, so as soon as I saw the sun this morning I whipped my camera out and took some photos.


Not too bad, eh?


I had to cast on another pair straight away as I was dying to use this yarn - Araucania Ranco Multy - and it is lush! I have 12 more rows to do before the heel......

I love those socks, the colours are great - you make it look so easy! I might have a go at making some socks myself by starting on your toddler basket weave socks :O)

Wow, you're on a roll with socks. They both look so pretty. Do you wear them a lot? I find the socks I knit just end up sitting in a drawer, so I'm trying not to make too many!

Wonderful socks and at this time of year they must really feel warm and snug.
