They're finished at last! These socks have taken almost three months, because they kept getting put aside for other things, particularly when they required too much brain power! However, they are done, and I think they're very pretty. The sun even came out this afternoon so that I could photograph them. The colours are quite true in the photos, which is always nice.

I thought that with the minimal knitting content today would be a good day to post pictures of our cats. I'm not sure they agreed...
At least you have something to look at besides half a striped sock!

Lucy - there are now two fronts and a back. This is the just about the perfect knit these days - the only thinking involved is some measurement and decreasing, and I've even managed to have to rip back a couple of times to get those right, but luckily it's a quick knit back!

Mango Moon Chakra. Simple garter stitch - knit in an evening. The yarn is spun from recycled fibres with glass beads hand-tied on.
Lucy knit from a Kaffe Fassett Regia 4-ply and some Opal in pink. I've now finished the back and am almost halfway up the left front. I've had to play around with the sizing on this pattern - it's very generously proportioned. When I first started I was knitting the size 1/2 but producing enough sweater for a six-year-old! It's cooperating nicely now and I love the colours in the sort-of-stripey yarn.
The Bubblegum socks are coming along as well - I'm halfway through the heel on the second socks, but right now Lucy is too much fun to stop - and such an easy knit for my tired brain these days!
