Red Eyes...

the name of my new socks.


 Sure they're all done. They even had passed their first wearing test last night.




Very comfortable and toasty on these chilly nights.



These socks were made using patterns from the 'Socks a la Carte' book and Bendigo Woollen Mills 4 ply luxury pure wool. Lovely.
I combined the Oh Baby cuff pattern with Eyes on You leg pattern and the short row heel with the round toe making for a very quick sock. I am not certain that the short row heel is a good choice for my thick ankle but the round toe is more comfortable than the toe arrangement I used on the previous socks, and  I didn't get all tangled doing Kitchener grafting!
I will be making more combinations from this book as there is enough information there for me to make a lot of socks that are not the same while practising a variety of techniques.

One more picture of the Go Anywhere Bag - after a couple of outings - including getting wet on the way back from the shops yesterday.
Here it is sitting on my kitchen chair - that is how tall it is. 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend spent in your favourite place.

Your socks look great but when it comes to knitting, I have no idea what you are talking about. That bag definitely looks like it can hold lots of stuff, projects, whatever you need to carry. Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Tammy

And that bag is darling.
