Have you seen the new Knitty?
Oh the socks... I am in love and lust with them.
Check these out:
I have found my airplane knitting I think. Now all I need to do is pick a yarn for them.
If you feel inclined to help me decide which pattern and yarn, please post a comment to let me know which one you think I should knit. Here's a link to my stash on Ravelry for the yarn: linky. Bear in mind that I will be using bamboo needles (customs and all that) so nothing too sticky on the bamboo.
These are to get me over and back on a flight from Dublin - Newark - Orlando so a good few hours knitting involved!
This will be fun, having others pick for me!
In other news, I have finished the crosshatch socks for my daughter. Pics will follow as I am in work. I didn't think I was going to have enough yarn, but I finished them with a teeny bit left. Talk about getting value for money out of a skein!
I have started the second Druid Mitten, only on the cuff so far.
I am plodding along on the Pi tablecloth, up to 288 stitches now. Not a work of art, but it's growing on me and I think for a first lace project it's fine.
I've begun my Christmas knitting! How depressing when you think about it. I have cast on for a pair of socks for my Dad from Sensational Knitted Socks. The pattern name escapes me now, I'll post it next time with the pics.
I'm off out after work tonight to meet a friend and her husband that I haven't seen in ages for a few drinks. Can't wait to catch up on all the gossip!
Have a good weekend!
