Stop-gap socks

First, thank-you, everyone, for your birthday wishes! They are very much appreciated.

Second, despite all my best efforts at the SnB last night, I still haven’t finished the front of Mark’s sweater. I was distracted by meeting some bloggers from the GTA Knitblog ring for the first time in the flesh: Elizabeth from Kitty Cafe, Sandra from Fibersantric, and Dani from Knit, Stitch, Click. It was great to meet you, gals, and I can happily state you’re all as fab in person as you are online!

However, since I don’t have a finished sweater piece to show you, I’ll instead give you a picture of the sock I’m currently working on:

It’s another one in the cotton/elastic blend, with an improvised cable pattern that sort of does what I wanted it to do… but I like the colours, and it’s good to have a sock on the go at all times, for knitting in lines and while waiting for people.

Oh, and I couldn’t resist taking a picture of Tigger while I was doing the sock photo-shoot — can you tell we’ve been letting our garden go to the weeds rather drastically? But Tigger just loves his jungle:

That’s all for now — I’ll keep plugging away on the brown sweater!

It was great to meet you in the flesh, too! I hope to get there again - logistical nightmare that it is.

Great colours on the sock. And it was very nice to meet you too.
