A pair of knitted socks

 
 
The knitted socks are now finished and they are now a matching pair. I decided to start the second sock again having got half way through it and I am glad that I did as I am very  pleased with them.
 

Do you remember the knitted Celtic blanket that we made at the knitting club, well it has been raffled off this week raising £428 which is brilliant. The lucky winners were an old couple who cried when they knew they had won!

Here is another card that I have made this week, it is for a retirement,

knitted sock

 
Hello everyone,
Well this is the start of my socks, they are made with sirdar crofter fair Isle effect Dk which I was kindly given by a friend at the knitting club. This is a brilliant yarn, as you can see the pattern is done for you. The only mistake that I have made is that the second sock starts off with a different colour, I should have noted where in the yarn I started to knit the first sock. I will remember this for next time but for the moment I have decided to leave it and carry on as there will be only me wearing them!

Winter knitting

 
I have been doing a little bit of knitting to keep out the cold, nice practical gloves and a hat with matching scarf. The weather is very cold and windy so they are much needed
 
 
 
 

 
This is another little card made with the studley die. The background is embossed which doesn't show very clearly.
