As part of the six sock kal I've just finished a pair of CIC socks (and it only took a couple of hours, oh, if only all knitting was this quick!)
They're knitted in Jaeger Matchmaker DK, in cream. I'll probably dye these though, I have a problem with white or cream socks (reminds me too much of the seventies, along with those awful plastic knee length pull on boots that I had!)
*And* the birthday socks for John M. Just got to sew in the ends after Chris has tried them on. I'm good at casting off toe-up socks, not too tight, not too loose, but I still like confirmation that they'll fit!
Boring ribbed ones. Not even a striped pattern to alleviate the boredom!
Toe up, with the eclectic heel. I've only ever tried this heel with toe-ups, that little gusset gives the extra bit of space needed to accommodate the heel and instep.
I've also worn my cloverleaf socks, here's a piccy to prove it. But IGNORE the white leg shown. I look like I've got some weird skin disease! Awkward photo pose, pointed and clicked! I'm surprised that I got my foot into the frame!
I've been slowly knitting away on the peacock feathers shawl - I'm 6 rows off starting the border! It's painful now. Each row seems to take forever, I can really only knit it in daylight (i.e. w/ends) and I'd rather be starting new projects! I've sort of promised to finish this before I do any more lace or shawl knitting. With christmas round the corner (yeah, I'm obsessed with it!) this might make me get a move on.
Nearly finished the capelet from Rowan! Just need some ribbon (or do I do I-cord?). This was meant for me, to warm my shoulders, but it's so bloody short that it's purely decorative, I think. I'll probably put it in the reserve pile for unexpected presents.
I've just done a 'preview' on this post, to check the links and photos and it's much shorter than I thought! Either I waffle on or post more often. How on earth do other bloggers manage to fill their blogs? I don't do housework, I get in and knit, but I don't have enough to post about! Maybe I'll start doing wip photos.
