Today I thought I'd show you a pair of socks I made for Mr Soaring Sheep's birthday back in September. He's not too bothered about pretty patterns, he just loves the bright colours, so when I saw this colourway (Macaw) for sale at Lamington Lass yarns I knew it would be perfect for him. As well as fun for me to knit lol
Unfortunately it's gloomy and drizzling outside so you'll have to make do with indoor photos. I think the socks have turned out rather nicely and Mr Soaring Sheep certainly seems pleased with them.
As usual I did a fish lips kiss heel which fits both our feet nicely and is straight forward to knit.
My current WIP is this set of Two At A Time socks. I'm using a free pattern on ravelry called Tendril die Socke and the yarn is from Five Moons Yarns
It's hard to see in the photos but the pattern is a k2p2 rib that shifts one stitch every other row which gives a nice spiral effect. I'm not 100% sure if the yarn works with the pattern and I find TAAT socks a bit tedious to knit because it feels like they're going super slowly. I shall persist though as purple is my favourite colour and purple socks will keep my feet happy lol
Last but not least I have a photo of my fluffy pup Pippin. He's 14 months old now and a bit of a teenager at times. I go to an all day training class with him once a month and he's definitely making progress. I fear I'm his biggest handicap lol
I've no idea what his ears were doing in this photo but he still looks cute. And as an aside he's the only English Shepherd in the UK with ears like this. I think it's because he's so nosy and doesn't want to miss out on anything ;-)
