I've been doing a bit of sock knitting this week. I completed this pair of socks from the gorgeous S. who is my best friend's second oldest daughter (and therefore my goddaughter's little sister). They are a plain sock in a very non-plain yarn -- Popsicle Jitterbug from Colinette. This colourway belongs to people like little S who is one of the sunniest, brightest, coolest people around!
I've also been knitting my goddaughter some socks for her iPod Nano. I confess I don't really understand the purpose of socks for an iPod - but they are cute, easy to knit and she wanted some. Nothing else to say really!
Work on the Melon Scarf is progressing well - only about 8 repeats of the centre panel left. That means I really should start thinking about what edging I want to use.
In the meantime I will cast on this scrummy purple yarn from Cazza's sock club to make some Latte Lace socks. I particularly like the detail on the heel of this pattern. When I bought the pattern I planned on using some cocoa coloured yarn (also from Cazza), but the purple arrived and I just have to knit it up. (I have a strong love for purple.) I think she's just opened up another 3 month subscription which I expect I'll be signing up for! (Because you can never subscribe to too many sock yarn clubs.)
