The project I chose was one which had been languishing in hibernation for almost a year.
|Unblocked Wild Violet Flowers|
The pattern is the beautiful Wild Flowers by Kitman Figueroa, and is the same one as I knitted for my best friend's wedding shawl last year. The yarn and beads were ones that I had bought as a kit for another project but the pattern did not speak to me so I had put them aside until something better came along.
The Sunday socks fell behind a little during my lost time but you will be glad to know that I am caught up again and ready to start pair 6 today.
Here is pair 4
The yarn is an absolute delight to work with. It is Suilven by Ripples Crafts and is a mix of Merino, Yak and Silk. It beautifully soft to the touch and it reminded me of a very fine cord when knitting with it.
Socks on a Plane a free pattern by Laura Linneman. This is a very popular pattern in the Ravelry community with over 2000 pairs knitted and it is also the pattern I shall turn to today when I cast on pair 6. The yarn this time is Drops Fabel a great go to sock yarn at a fantastic price.
Time for me to take my leave and get the Sunday Sock on the needles.
