My socks are finally finished, and I think Sockitis may have struck! I take back every bad thing I ever said about knitting socks. I honestly don't think I've ever been so pleased with a FO! I feel so proud of myself for making them. I can see a few fitting issues with them, but it's a learning curve.
I finished them on Sunday, and have been off work this week. One of my jobs was a huge clear out; so on Monday, after three runs to the dump and two charity shops, I treated myself to a trip to the LYS - Jean's Wool Shop on the Cregagh Road in Belfast. This is what I bought.
I had also ordered a book on Amazon called Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd. So I'm having a go at a 3x1 ribbed sock now. I love the how the colours change in this.
On the Beret front, I finished the spiral beret I was talking about in my last post. Here it is. I ended up using two balls for it, but only used a tiny bit of the second one.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, especially as I sort of made it up. But as the weather's getting better, it got put away with all the winter clothes this afternoon.
