A New Angle...

When I visited The Netherlands last September (man, that seems like ages ago!) one of my friends gave me three skeins of sock yarn that she in turn had received from another friend.
It is in fingering weight (one of the thinnest) which I have never knit with before. I have also never knitted with a self-striping yarn before and boy, it is fun! The anticipation of what color combo is coming next makes want to knit more and more. I'm still practicing the picking way of knitting and I thought another pair of socks with just plain knitting would do the trick. So far so good!  {smile}

  1. Die sokjes gaan mooi worden, met dat verloopgarentje !!
    Hier nog iemand voor wie het winteren nu wel stilletjes z'n einde mag vinden, ik snak naar groen in de tuin/blauw in de lucht !!

  2. Gorgeous view! I say keep the star up until the sun comes back!

  3. That is a nice view. Sometimes a small change of scenery makes so much difference. I love that sock yarn - I wish I could knit socks! x


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
