After much flicking through books and browsing on Ravelry I finally decided on a pattern for the canary posh yarn. Thanks for all of the suggestions.
I wanted something with cables and here we have Whitby from Nancy Bush's "Knitting on the Road". I haven't knit anything from this book before, so I feel like I am using something old from my stash, just my book stash not my yarn stash!
It is exactly what I wanted, fits like a dream and is a really easy pattern to memorise. This is a picture taken on the train to London this morning. Yes the man next to me did think I was odd.
Here we have progress as of tonight. One (or maybe two) more repeats and then onto the toe. I love socks on 3mm needles! Unfortunately I don't think the pair will be finished in time for the Ravelry fun day at the Crafty Cottage in Warwick on Saturday, not unless I skip work tomorrow!
