A little more knitting....

Despite the radio silence I have been knitting....
First up, a sock. IB Footsie in The Yarn Yard Clan, an old club colourway which I have been saving up.

Loving the twisted stitches; the second one is ready for the heel so should be finished sometime soon.
I took a little time out from sock knitting to make a mini T-Rex for my godson....

I then got sidetracked by this gorgeous pattern by ├ůsa Tricosa - Atalanta Sideways
Knit in Mirasol Tupa yarn, it is a merino/silk DK weight. I only had two skeins so knew it would make quite a small shawl...

But I think it works.

And it is gorgeously soft!

Now, to finish that sock...

Purple AND orange! You really are a child of the 70's aren't you?!
I hadn't seen that sock pattern before - must queue! And I have to admit stalking that shawl after I saw your photos popping up at ravelry!
And I haven't even mentioned t-rex! Most cool!
