Waterfalls and Rockin' Socks

Tony and I had a fabulously relaxing holiday here.... The owners were lovely, we had home made cake and bread along with a bottle of champagne on arrival. We did venture outside, did a little walking and even some ice cream eating at a Jersey Ice Cream Farm despite the cold. We also watched organic flour being traditionally milled and ate scones at The WatermillBut most of the time was spent in our own mill relaxing and doing a bit of crochet:The baby blanket has progressed a little since this photo. All 25 squares are done and crocheted together. It is just waiting for a border... and the baby hasn't arrived yet (s/he is a week late tomorrow) so I'm doing ok!
And I found time for a bit of knitting too:
One of Tony's Birthday Socks was finished for his birthday. The other is still in progress. I love the Socks that Rock. I want every single skein on their website. It is the daddy of all sock yarn.
