With the cold comes the knitting

As the days get colder and wetter, I’m more inclined towards indoor activities. Nowhere has this been more obvious than in my knitting.

I’m nearly done with the falling leaves socks, and not before time, as all the leaves are turning now. I have been taking them with me to knit night, but will have to find something else to take next week if this continues!

This is a gift, and though it doesn’t look like much now, it is a truly magical garment. It is knit all in one piece, and then put together with 2 seams. Once it has been received I shall post you a picture of the finished piece!

I had so much fun making this, that I may need to make a second one in different colours! Or perhaps just create a matching set for this one …

I have also been working on this piece;

Those pointy bits there meant that I am on the home stretch! It took me quite some time to figure out the pattern. There was LOTS of cursing, and before I attacked it with a flame thrower, it did spend a bit of time in time-out. But I’m on the way now!

What projects have you been working on?
