couldnt help myself!

I couldnt help myself - Ive just finished these socks (ravelry link to a nice ribbed sock).  They turned out quite well although the colouring wasnt what I thought it was going to be.
A lovely lady who reads and comments on my blog quite often - Lyn - commented that she always has a pair of socks on the needles so of course I couldnt go against that advise - thanks Lyn!!!!
So I cast on these socks which are serpentine socks and this time they are toe up for a bit of a change.  The yarn is knit picks stroll sport so they are thick ones and should be nice and warm for winter.
BUT....because I have got a little bit organised and actually have several projects all bagged up with yarn and pattern and needles I just had to pick one out of that lot and cast it on too!  This pattern is holden shawlette and Im using some "holy" wollmeise yarn for it. So I spose not too bad - one finish and two starts and sadly I almost started another project but I controlled myself (for now!)

Thanks for the mention on your blog! :-)

I certainly do always have a pair of socks on the needles - they are light, transportable and quick; and because I use self-striping yarn I no longer need a pattern!

I finished Holden several weeks ago but haven't blocked [ or blogged ] it yet

It's a lovely pattern and will be gorgeous in that Wollemeise.
I made a Kiri in Wollemeise a couple of years ago and it is so nice to wear.
