Horay, look at all the lovely lovely goodies Louise sent me for winning her blogiversary prize.
I was very excited as I never win prizes. I'm sure the chocolate won't stay untouched for long! Thanks Louise.
Now onto the WIP for the week, my version of the spiral socks. I can't decide if these are hideous or really cool. What do you think? Just the toe (in turquoise) to go on these.
A close up of the spiral pattern, I'm hoping they will be a bit more even when blocked.
Now for a pair of socks I am very happy with, my Cranford Socks.
Started: 1st April
Finished: 13th April
Pattern: My own sock pattern. The lace repeat is based of those in Jane Lithgow's Cranford Mitts.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Turquoise
Comments: A really simple horseshoe lace repeat over 60 stitches. I love them. Natalie at the Yarn Yard is dyeing me some merino and I'm going to make a pair from that with contrasting heels and toes. Let me know if you would like the pattern and I'll talk to Jane about writing it up (as it is her idea I've stolen!)
