This is some beautiful wool that I bought for myself last year.
BJ was in hospital & I got to go for a walk into town when Stuart came up to visit for a few hours. I nearly didn't get this one. I left the shop but turned back to get it after all. It is gorgeous. 50% alpaca. What's not to love right?
Definitely will be a little bit of luxury on my feet in
Can you believe it? I even tried a new pattern. Fish Scales & Fairy Tales Socks. (I think I picked them because I liked the name!) They are not my regular super duper mindless sock pattern. I did have to think about this one a bit more & ummm... actually have another pair of socks going at the same time which were my mindless knitting moments. I hadn't done that before with two pairs going at the same time but it is useful. Rainy days & movies where all the lights had to be out were definitely the mindless sock knitting time. That was Monday! And Sunday! And Saturday!
