Bad Again

Well, I didn't mean to leave it so long between posts again. I was ill towards the end of last week and pretty much stayed off the computer. In fact for about three days I pretty much stayed horizontal. Bad for communication but good for knitting.

Today will be about socks but I have also finished the Hidcote Garden Shawl. It is so gorgeous and I will post photos soon.

I finished my Blueberry Waffle socks. Still love 'em!

I also knit the fastest pair of socks EVAH! The yarn is Fyberspates 100% Blue Faced Leicester and is DK. I cast on the first sock after lunch on Sunday and cast off the second sock before lunch the following day. Just simple stocking stitch but they look great and fit fine. I used 3.5mm needles.

I then started Denmark from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road. Once again its DK wool, Wendy Emu 100% superwash wool and I finished the first sock on the day I started it and cast on for the second. Then I was seduced away from socks by the Hidcote shawl. I'm on the foot of the second sock so they will be finished by the end of the weekend.

Once I finish Denmark I will have achieved the goal I set for myself of two pairs of socks a month for Summer of Socks 2007. :-) I'm going to try to squeeze out another pair before the official end date of 21st September because I like to be an over-achiever!
