Back from the 'Dam

Most mornings were spent like this... knitting on deck in the sun. I didn't seem to progress that far, but hey, I was on holiday....
Here is my entrelac bag I'm making for a friends 30th Birthday. Inspired by jumpers my mum made in the 80's, she has even found the pattern for one of them, which I'll scan in and show you soon. The Noro Kureyon works really well with the entrelac squares. I can't wait to see it felted. I've used two balls so far and have one more. I'm thinking bamboo handles for it at the moment but not sure how to fix them in after the felting... hmmm.
Here is the progress on the Fair Isle Free Argyle socks. Such Yummy yarn and a cool pattern. I'm a bit further on from here now. I've turned the heel and am on my first all pattern row.
I also started on some basic 4x2 ribbed socks for Tony, but I've only got the top ribbing to show so far and that's a bit boring. Will be good 6am mindless train knitting this week however!
