Cool Trainer Socks
Ta da. Here they are. The cool Regia Cotton surf sock now has a twin and they are setting down as very happy pair. I adapted a basic cuff down DPN pattern and am really pleased with them as they're the best fitting socks I've made. More pairs will follow......in time :)
And although I've had a bit of trouble with summer tops recently what with running out of yarn and arm ache due to too many stitches and knitting with cotton, here is another pic to prove I am actually making things. It's the back of Shingle from Cotton Tape Collection. A lovely nice simple knit and a joy to knit with. Whether we actually get a summer in order to wear summer clothes remains to be seen. I am desperately fighting the urge to get out some Big Wool and knit a jumper.......
Today is a very auspicious day in the Rowan knitting world. It is of course the day the new Autumn/Winter collection is released. It's now all on the website for the world to view. Me, I can't wait till the magazine comes through the door and have to say it is very irresponsible of my postie to go on holiday now and leave me with a temp. Maybe tomorrow?
