As you can see I'm working my way down the body but still have quite a long way to go. I'm enjoying the cabling. I found this free chart which looks wonderfully complicated but is very straight forward to knit providing you keep track of which row you're on. Hence the safety pin you can see which marks row 1 of the repeat.
The other project I want to show you today is my latest FO, a pair of rainbow socks
I knitted these socks from a double stranded sockblank that I bought from Mothy and the Squid on etsy. It was my first successful experience of knitting two socks at a time. I had tried before using two seperate balls of yarn and got in a bit of a tangle. I'm more experienced with sock knitting now though so I had a bit more success lol.
I literally knitted until the end of the yarn, I barely had enough left to sew in my ends. I think they're absolutely wonderful, I can't wait until I can wear them when the weather is cold.
I need to get on with some chores now. My eldest daughter is away on a school residential trip tomorrow so I need to get her bags sorted and packed ready to drop off with her at school first thing in the morning. She's very excited, I'm sure they won't get much sleep and will be utterly shattered when they get home but they'll have had a lot of fun too.
