Busy - with piccies!

Well, first of all I now have my new laptop - hurrah! It is nearly the same as my old (erm, only 14 months old, but didn't survive being dropped) one, but lighter. But, in the meantime I hae been doing some crafting - the first of which I will show to you, thus;

They are 'Embossed Leaves' socks by Mona Schmidt, in the lovely, gorgeous book 'Favorite Socks' 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave and I've done them in Patons Fairytale Dreamtime 4ply, 100% wool.

I just love how the pattern, that is so easy, is so effective and pretty! After I 'd done the first one, I just wanted to frame it!

But, as I was showing off to my daughter, she has bagged this pair. Oh, I spoil those kids!

Oooh, lovely socks! The colour is divine, and the stitch pattern V pretty. Gosh, and you even made a pair! So many people seem to get stuck after the first one - Single Sock Syndrome, I believe it's called. Well done Kaz! (((hugs)) D.

well, I'm now doing the second sock, Dianne, but I know what you mean. I just want to get onto something else in the book, now! Lovely to hear from you, xx

Thanks, FK, I'm just up to the heel flap on the 2nd one, but went to the cinema last night. Should have taken my knitting!
