I have finished the Opal Flamingo socks for my dear friend, I have made socks for all my friends over the time except for her so I felt it only fair to knit her some. She is a real pink girl so I think they will suit her nicely, I hope she likes them.
I have also taken on the POMATOMUS SOCKS as you well know I have a love/hate relationship with lace knitting so we will see how I go with them. It is a lovely pattern and so far so good, with only a couple of minor stuff ups so far, nothing that a round of unpicking hasn't fixed. The yarn I am using is a beautiful hand dyed one that I received from the lovely BECKY when we were taking part in secret pal 5, I have been saving it for a special project and I thought the colours would suit 'HIPPO' as he shall be called from now on, perfectly. Becky has been having computer problems so I haven't heard from her in a while, I do miss you if you happen to read this post.
I also couldn't resist starting something else, I seem to have been knitting a lot of socks lately, so I wanted to do something totally different and have chosen this delightful little fellow out of Simply Knittings Christmas gifts extra that came with the November issue.
I know it is a long way till next Christmas but he is the sort of thing I would like on display in my lounge room permanently, not to mention that he does bare a striking resemblance to my DH (I do hope he doesn't read this).
