Socks on

Here’s the Hedera socks on the toes. Pattern slightly modified to accommodate the ridiculous length of my toes. I didn’t much fancy lace in the parts that would rub, so the stocking stitch part is maybe a bit odd-looking. I don’t care, cos they are dead comfy.

I am soooo pleased with these; my second ever pair of socks. Sock count now = 5.

Which socks to do next? I am fancying Jaywalker, maybe. I think I want to knit up some of the yarn that I got from Violet Green – but really that should require a very special pattern. Oh, the decisions!

I want to cast on straightaway. Suggestions in the comments, please. I have 1 skein Stroud Wool Socrates, 1 skein Stroud Wool Supersock, 3 balls of Opal, more of the Cashsoft, and 3 skeins of Hipknits Cashmere sock yarn on its way, plus the Orkney Angora bits and pieces. Stash pics for Ravelry users here. Pick me a yarn,a nd suggest a pattern, because it’s too difficult for me to choose.

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
