I think it’s fairly safe to say my love of socks is back. One foot done, and I’m finding it hard to put this sock down.
This is unusual for me since I almost never knit socks at home but this is a pattern that needs a little concentration so I’m knitting it at home – although I did manage a fair bit in the car on the way down to the coast. I think in some ways it’s the colour that’s keeping the magic alive for me at the moment. It’s such a striking purple. It’s hard not to be completely won over by it.
Wollmeise is amazing stuff, although I will confess to finding the yarn annoyingly splitty. Is that blasphemy? Never mind, it’s the only bad thing I can say about Wollmeise really.
For fun, here’s a shot of Alice in our new chicken coop. My Girls are coming at the end of the month so in the meantime, somebody else who is suitably small thinks it’s a fun house, not a chicken house.
Who’s going to tell her, when the chickens come, that the ladder isn’t for her?
