Surprises

Sometimes I am unsure if I like what I am knitting. This is usually the case when it comes to sock club kits. Maybe the yarn isn't quite within my colour comfort zone. The pattern might not be what I would usually select.


The May STR kit is a little like that for me. I didn't love it. I didn't hate it. I knit it just the same. Part of my reasoning for being in this sock club is to push myself and I think I've been doing that.






So needless to say, I was a little surprised to find that I like them. The colour and pattern somehow work better when I'm wearing them. Must be me.






P2 was also surprised.


And finally, I am delighted to say that the Edmonton Knitters Lace a Long has begun and I love the pattern so far.






Surprised again.

P2 is just lovely.

Sometimes as you say the socks look better on your feet, as these ones.

I am looking forward to seeing more of the Lace a Long.

Love the colour of the shawl. Was P2 trying to eat the camera?
