I CAN knit socks!

Have a look at this! First sock done and second one cast on! And yes I CAN knit socks - it fits perfectly and everything.  Am I impressed with myself? Of course I Am

feeling brave and knitting socks on dpns

Ive finally taken the plunge and cast on a pair of socks, knitted on dpns (double pointed needles - 5 of them for the uninitiated).   Its my birthday tomorrow so I had some birthday money given to me, so splurged and bought a set of the lovely Knitpro wooden needles.  The yarn is colinette jitterbug in blue and is a joy to knit with.  The pattern is peacock rib socks and I got it from Ravelry.  Looking good so far I think!

a lovely day in the garden

Well with a lovely day today of around 24 degrees, and a grandfinal on the tv that I didnt want to watch (btw Collingwood won) I decided to spend it in the garden.  Pulled a heap of plants out, put in a few new ones and generally did a rearrange - and it looks pretty good now I think!
