I've had very little time to knit this week. Sigh. So the only thing I have to show is a sock. A nice sock but a sock that was cast on in SEPTEMBER and is still without a mate. Sigh again. I cast this on so I would have a portable project to take to the airport to meet my friend when she visited from Australia. The yarn is Opal Rainbow.
I'm still working on a couple of projects for Kerrie but work on those has also ground almost to a halt. They are my priority though so will get done first. One I can't show you but the other is the Lightweight Mountain Peaks shawl (yes, still!). I'm on the edging for the shawl and it is looking stunning! I haven't taken a pic recently so nothing to see I'm afraid. Maybe next week...

While my friend Meg was visiting from Australia she took a fancy to my French Market Bag. So, being the good friend I am, I said I'd knit her one. This involved a little drive to Bristol to go to Get Knitted for the yarn. Shame about that! I was very good and only bought some more different sized cables for my Knit Picks Options set.
Meg chose Cascade 220 Handpaints yarn in colour #9921. I knit it exactly according to the pattern but wish I'd made the handles a bit longer. Ah well, they'll stretch with use. In the picture above the bag is filled with yummy Hip Knits yarns. And, no, Meg did not get the yarn. Hey, I'm not that selfless a friend!
