What have I been up to lately? Knitting-wise, I've started the second sock for K in Lorna's Laces Flames, but most of my time has been devoted to the Sock Scrap Stole. It's a stole/wrap/thingy in a feather and fan pattern using all of the little balls of leftover sock yarn. I wanted a project which would use up these remnants and be something I could wear/use, and also look at all of the different yarns and remember the socks I've knitted and who I've knit them for. Sort of a knitted patchwork for the obsessive sock knitter. Cause the socks I knit are special to me - I've knitted them for myself (something of a triumph, because I tend to give away most of the things I knit), or for people I care about.
Also we've been watching Wire in the Blood. Robson Green. Phwoaaar. Ahem. Brilliant, brilliant series. We've been absolutely hooked since the first episode, and we've just finished watching series four. But we didn't want it to end! Anyone know if they've made/going to make series five? Sam?
Good thing for the day: It's a public holiday here tomorrow. Wooooo!
Bad thing for the day: Winter approaches. It's time to go to work and it's still dark outside.
