Sock Progress

My October Esther sock is coming along nicely, though I am finding knitting on two circulars rather tedious. IMO using DPNs is far and away faster, though using circulars does allow me to knit two at a time, so I will persevere. Just about to start on the heel now, so with a following wind, they should be all done by the end of the month.

The pattern is coming out very nicely, though you can’t see it very well in the picture. I’ve alternated the direction of the cables so that there is more of a knotwork feel to the pattern. I hadn’t intended to do this originally, but reached the second cable and thought it might be more fun to do it this way.

Like An Arrow?

More like an Exocet! Time has flown by at supersonic speed the last couple of months, largely because I have been so incredibly busy I suspect. So what have I been up to that has kept me so busy? Mainly finishing outfits for a faerie wedding – bride, groom and best man.

There always seems to be far more finishing that I expect – the frogging on the groom’s coat was all hand made and hand stitched on and as for hand finishing the hems on the full-skirted frock coats, well, I won’t even go there. It was all worth the effort though 🙂

In addition to all that, I have also been blogging for Violet Green, doing their April Sock Club, though I must admit that time rather got away from me and the final sock pics didn’t quite get there in April 🙁

Time is pressing once more and I have plenty more to do, but I will post again soon 🙂
