Flitting

I've been flitting from project to project this week.
I finished the first Oolong sock on Monday. I am in love.

In love with the pattern - so stretchy, so lovely and so easy to remember. I am most certainly in love with the yarn- Hazel Knits Artisan Sock from Socktopus. Beautiful colour, sproigy, not too heavy. Gorgeous. I haven't cast on for number two yet, I'm saving that pleasure until I have finished a few other (more urgent) WIPs.
Like the current baby blanket:

I've got most of the middles done. I spent last Sunday working out combinations and permutations for my hexagon. I knew my A-Level maths would come in useful at some point!
I've also started on my UK Swap Winter Warmers project, Wickery by Woolly Wormhead.

In Pure Wool Aran. This is knit on smaller needles to get gauge, so the cables are a bit tough on my hands, but it is a great commuting project.
P.S. Don't forget you still have 5 days to enter the draw to win blogiversary prizes. If you can't afford to donate at the moment, but would like one of the books. Please leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do :o)

I just love the socks - and the use of the word 'sproigy' - great! I just wish I had your patience to make all those blankets :o)

Your blankets are just gorgeous. The socks are a fab colour, Hazel knits is a lovely yarn isn't it.

Ooo Oolong! And yet another gorgeous blanket! Is that New Lanark Aran for the hat?

All very nice projects! I do like that blanket, especially.
