A Whole Lotta FOs.

 This River Stole (done on smaller needles, like streetsandyos did here) has been a staple this winter, (along with the jade coloured Ballon Scarf from Scarf Style, which I knitted the winter before). It’s incredibly warm – that’ll be the mohair – and even though I don’t normally wear much yellow or gold, it works really well with the reds, damsons, and turquoises that make up most of my wardrobe.Another firm favourite is my pair of Fetchings that I knitted in November.

 These (along with another pair that Liz knit me for Christmas), have been worn pretty much every single day of winter – either while running erands or when we’re out for our early morning walk. I lengthened the finger part, which keeps more of my fingers warm when it gets really cold. They are knit in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran – which has held up suprisingly well (given that mixed fibres tend to pill pretty quickly.)I’ve also been wearing the hat my friend Abby* designed. But until she desides if she’s going to get it published or not I can’t photograph it. 🙁

(* – hey Abby – look I’m pimping your upholstery blog!)

Also finished – but not shown till now – are a pair of DK weight socks that used up the left over yarn from Theo’s Jumper.

 They are knit toe up, on 4mm (I think) – and have become my house socks of choice. :)(I have a real soft spot for DK weight socks. They are usually pretty strong, nice and thick, for padding about the house, and knit up in no time. Plus I always have half DK balls around the place just waiting to be made into stripes. I can see myself making more variations on this pair – in fact I’m suprised I haven’t done so already.)

 I also knit these, from an Angora/Merino mix by Touch Yarns which I picked up at the Knitting and Stitching Show in London. (I’m currently using up the rest of the skein to try and squeeze out another pair of trainer socks. *fingers crossed.)

 These were knit using the yarn that my mother-in-law brought back from the US for me. The pattern was something I just concocted with the help of a stitch dictionary. Another pair of thicker house socks – much needed given that only the bedroom and stairs of our house are carpeted.So there you go! I did keep myself busy while I was away. (In fact there are more FOs that just need photoing.)

In other news, my secret project took a leap forwards this week, which was very exciting. *beams*
