The Christmas knitting is now well under way, helped along by the horrible weather at the weekend. I had been planning to get out in Peak District to blow some of the library cobwebs away, but after seeing the weather forecast decided hibernating with my knitting was a better idea.
So now is probably not a good time to fall head-over-heels in love with a brand new sock pattern. I’ve recently got back into stranded colour knitting, I enjoy it and it has the advantage of slowing me down which helps with the hand aches. When I saw these snowflake socks (from Interweave) on ravelry I had a Have To Have Them moment and bought the pattern, then rushed off to fill my virtual shopping basket with suitable yarn. Luckily sense prevailed and I left without clicking the ‘checkout’ button.
So back to the Christmas knitting without more distractions. Oh, unless you count a sudden urge to make my own stitch markers ….
