Yes it's that time again (apologies, I missed last week - visitors from UK again). You can find all about WOYWW here and how to play along.
So, does the title make you think of socks? No? Well it does me, but maybe that's because that's all I have been doing. I'll show my desk first because that is why you are here and if you can be bothered to read to the bottom you will see some finished socks and the start of some new ones.
Well what a mess! To be fair (as I share this space with visitors) I haven't really been here at my desk for over ten days.
Tea cosy (no further crocheted) and in front of that a finished cosy sock for Smallest (a slight twist on the original ones as the red and cream is switched - his request). Many circular needles and balls of wool. A pattern, a snake still being knitted but not much further on. My knitting bag, sewing box, scissors, tape measure, cellotape, remote, IPad (mid blogging) and lamp. I think that's it. Now I have to tidy it up because it is bugging me!
Now for the things I finished.
Finally, I finished my Temperance Sock. Lattice pattern with right and left twists and knitted in a Regina Angora Merino - very soft. This was a toe-up sock using the magic cast on and a short row heel (wrap and turn stitches) using two circular needles.
I made a Cosy sock for Smallest for Christmas. Originally he didn't one which is why I made him Leftover Leo. When he tried this one he said "ooooh it's lovely can I keep it on?". Then he said "I would like another one exactly the same". Bless. Easily pleased.
Now Grandad has asked for a pair exactly the same but bigger obviously. Next job. Plus the next sock in my Sockalicious group is for a Christmas Stocking - should be interesting as it's using a Fair Isle pattern!!!
Hope to get round lots of you as I am all by myself with just a pile of washing for company.
