I have abandoned the other sock for the time being. It will probably be a sock for me at a later date. I have also decided that I just can't get on with the 2mm needles, I work much better on 2.5mm. I've started another sock in the same rib pattern as I did for Tony's socks, in Forest Walker from Curious Yarns
I'm also working on a few other secret things, but I can't tell you about them as the recipients could possibly read this, so this isn't the only knitting/crochet I've managed this weekend! Another exciting thing is this, the first flower on my Passiflora on the back fence. So amazing. Now I know where my green and purple obsession stems from
And lastly, I got my envelope with details of my secret holiday in from Tony this weekend. Yipeeee. Of course, I have no self restraint and opened the envelope almost straight away. I can reveal that for our 4 year anniversary I will be sleeping here in a castle. More importantly in a turret of a castle, I love turrets and round rooms and round windows. I used to dream of living in a turret when I was a little girl! Such a brilliant present. Thank you Tiger! We are spending 2 nights here and then have a week elsewhere... but that is still a secret at the moment. We also get to see our friends John and Sarah and their little boy Sam. He is the one who the Train Track slipover was for, I would like to make something else to take with me so have been looking for inspiration. I am thinking the jumper below from Miss Bea Dressing up. I'll take a look at the cotton angora I bought and see if there are any suitable colours!Good mindless knitting for the trip to Hebden Bridge this weekend me thinks!
