Sock Along, Week 3

Ah, the heel is complete.  Thankfully when wearing my socks you won't see it!  One side looks fine, the other side, mmmmmmmm better to not comment !

Great Gatsby Wedding

I attended a Great Gatsby wedding shoot yesterday and here is one of the hundreds of photos I snapped.  I generally don't review my photos taken at a shoot for a few days, I find I critique them better if I leave them sit for a while (so the momentum, or excitement, has waned a little).

The lace on the dress and the parasol was magnificent, not sure if it was hand or machine made, but in any event the bride looked stunning.

Sock Along, Week 2

My sock is progressing well and I am still up-to-date, which is a bonus.  I am really enjoying the cables/ pattern and think it looks very effective.

Next clue is our heel, I always find this a little cumbersome using one needle but I manage to do it.

Irish Crochet Mat

Another finished project - slowly getting through them all.  Here is an Irish Crochet mat.  The roses are very easy to make and I find them interesting because they are dimensional.

Sock Knit-Along

I am participating in another sock knit-along at Knit Purl Hunter http://knitpurlhunter.com/kal/.  We get a weekly clue to knit toe up socks.  I purchased some sock yarn today - I don't think I really need more yarn - Naturally Waikiwi which is Merinoo/Nylon/Alpaca/Possum in a lovely purple shade (do I really need another pair of purple socks, or anything purple really; just because it is my favourite colour!)
Here are my socks at the end of week 1, the toe is now complete.
