I'm still debating which stash project I'm going to start next - there's yarn set aside for 4 jumpers, 2 patterns decided upon but still needs some narrowing down before I'll be happy to cast on yet. 'Melon' is still calling me from 'Victorian Lace Today' and would be a great way to really christen my Boyes needles but it will probably take need more concentration than my brain is possible capable of right now! So just for the ease of it and to keep those fingers knitting I've cast on for (and knitted the first of) some Horcrux socks from the Six Socks Knitalong. I've got until the end of the month to finish them by but I've no worries about that as sock 2 is on the heel already and flying along! It's a comfy sock as well - very elastic and I'm sure there will be no Nora Batty sagging here!
In amongst all the madness of Birthday Parties (which was really more of a get together than a party and went really well!) and new bathrooms (also going well but still chaos!) I've also been getting some spinning done. Again I've not been able to get a really good photo of this, try as I did I could not get a really good close up unblurred shot. But you should be able to get the idea from what you can see which should end up as completely OTT socks. I'm spinning the colours in the same order each time but I'm not really convinced I'll end up with blocks of colour as there's been no real attempt to have equal sections. So there should be a bit of a mix of colours which I hope won't be too bad on the eyes! As soon as its plyed I will show you the results (unless truly horrible!)
I've been meaning to post for ages now but things do seem to have been hectic lately and by the end of the day my head has not been up to sitting in front of the computer so I apologise for the huge essay and heap of photos I'm inflicting on you all. I really couldn't leave without sharing these glimpses of Spring which I've seen over the last couple of weeks.
And of course some bluebells - it's been such a fantastic year for them so far and I just love the way they've tinted so many hillsides blue.
Anyway back to the knitting, thanks for the continuing support and all your comments even though I'm being a slow blogger - I will try harder!!
