Anemone socks

It is wet and cold here today but I am happy: the fire is glowing and I have hand-knitted socks on my feet!  These socks were finished in June and are the Anemone pattern by a New Zealand designer, Wei S. Leong.  The yarn is Knitsch 100% merino sock yarn which is from New Zealand merino and hand-dyed in New Zealand too.  These are my favourite hand-knitted socks so far because I got the fit just right!

Lovely things:
I have received my second package for the Happy-go-knitty 4 ply shawl club.   This time the yarn I received is a gorgeous plummy colour and I'm making good progress, just working on the lace border.  I have been visiting the Retro fair occasionally and I found some lovely handmade project bags (you can see the spotty one with my knitting) and a cute little shelf.  I am hoping to get this painted and then find a home for it.

Thanks for stopping by here and for your comments, I always appreciate them.  Wendy xx
