I'm using one of the yarn club colourways from Flamboyance Yarns, this one is called "The Rocks and the Water" which is very good description for the colours I think.
As you can probably tell from the photos the socks will be for Mr Soaring Sheep. He's been a very appreciative "knitted socks receiver" so I thought I'd make him another pair. At the moment I'm working my way up the leg. I've used my preferred toe up pattern over 64 stitches with a gusset heel and have the garter stitch section going over 20 stitches
I'm enjoying having a mindless knitting pattern on the go for those times when your hands need to be busy but your brain isn't able to concentrate on anything complicated. It's meditative and soothing.
I'm linking in with Nicole's Keep Calm Craft On link up today. I'm feeling very low on energy at the moment, a combination of the clocks going forward, end of term grumps from the children and various other stresses. I'm looking forward to the Easter holidays starting and being able to relax and chill out with my family :-) Hopefully we'll get some sunshine and have some nice days out. Have a good week everyone
