After the euphoria of the last few days that saw my pattern released (up to 168 favourites!!!) it's high time I got back to business.
My Spiral Boot Socks are progressing nicely. I've finished the first one:
I'm pleased enough with it. It's a little tight at the top, but I'd rather that than for it to fall down! Plus I'm sure it'll stretch a little bit when washed and worn.
The second one is going at a great pace too:
I'm about half way up the leg. These should be finished by the end of the week. Then I need to decide what to knit next. I really can't decide. There's nothing that's grabbing me by the scruff of the neck and yelling "KNIT ME NOW". I think I'll have to do some Rav browsing.
My attention was brought to this pattern: Dr. G's Memory Vest . This is a really lovely vest that requires a donation to Alzheimers research to receive the pattern. What a great idea. I wish I'd thought of something like this for Dads vest. Hmm. Maybe I'll try and design a womans cardigan for Mam and have that donate to the Irish Alzheimers society, seeing as how she's the one with the awful disease.
In other news, I was back in work today. Boo. I really miss Twitter when in work! But my day was brightened when hubby brought this home for me to cheer me up. Look!
It's a widdle lamb! That's chocolate! Aww. Cutest chocolate ever. Poor thing, he's long dead now though. He got nibbled with a cup of tea a few minutes ago. He didn't die in vain, I made sure I enjoyed every bit and made sheepy sounds while I devoured him!
