Knitting Update
I know, I know – probably poor Marina’s fallen over in shock. 😉 I finally finished my plain old socks! The yarn is Wisdom Yarns, Marathon Socks – Boston (color 212), knit on 2mm needles. I love this colorway! Stripey blue, purple, and black – life is good.

  1. Wait, why do I have to destash again? I always thought my stash was too small…um, don’t ask my husbands opinion.

    Great colorway on those socks. Why is it we blow through patterned socks and drag our feet (no pun intended) with plain ol socks.

  2. Wow, Marina is going to fall over, what with the amount of FOs we’ve been showing off! Nice…I love blues/purples.

    Aw, May really does looked a bit stunned that she’s not the center of attention in that first shot!

  3. Here’s where I pretend to know what you mean by “colourway” (gotta add the U, ya know…):

    Oooh! What a great colourway! I love colourways! Colourways for Prez!

  4. Just discovered your blog – love your cats and your knitting! I’ve got two orange ones that are rather similar to yours. The socks are wonderful!
