Well begun is almost done........

.......I hope!
First sock of the three pairs I have to have made within the next two weeks:

Really easy pattern which was gifted to me by Lucie several months ago and used often since. Anyone wants a copy then let me know. Yarn used is Regia self striping sock yarn, you didn't think I knitted all those stripes in did you?
And as a break in the monotony of going round and round on DPN's a couple more quick crochet granny squares to add to the throw. Was hoping it would be a nice cover up for snuggling on the sofa with a newborn but think the completed throw might take some time yet ;-)

Ooooh I love stripey socks ;)
That's going to be a lovely bright and cheerful granny throw when it's finished. You're so clever. I Get myself in right tangle whenever I try and knit and crochet is just a complete mystery to me!

I need to stop reading your blog - I keep coming up with more things to try - Mum loves the stripy sock wool (she was peeking over my shoulder earlier) and has nearly talked me into trying to make some. I sat and did 3 granny squares last night, getting quicker each time as memory came back (it must be nearly 20 years since I last did one!)
