so… I had to put a halt to the knitting for a while as I was starting to use it as a fairly unhealthy form of escapism. Not as unhealthy as a smack-habit I suppose but not ‘rock solid’ ne’er the less…
HOWEVER – I am now feeling a little more stable and was able to FINISH PHILLIP’S SOCKS!
Look aren’t they beauties? Now Pippy has much skinnier legs and bigger feet than me so the fact that they look tight in the legs and baggy in the feet is how they are supposed to be OK?
I gave them to him on Friday and we are suffering a bit of a cold snap this weekend so I hope their completion is as timely as it seems.
The impetus for this step is that all my favourite socks seem to be full of holes and dying and I have needles and a bumper basket of glorified string so I have now started a pair for ME!
Hooray for me, I say.
