I am really getting the hang of knitting for myself now. This week I have cast on this project:
It is the 'Little Leaf Lace Scarf' by Sivia Harding. I am using Opal sock wool in the Neon colourway so that it will be nice and vibrant against my black Winter coat. The needles are Addi Lace circulars and I love the slight 'nobble' at the end which helps with doing the psso bits.
On the sock knitting front I have finished the 1st sock in Regia Mirage Earth. I decided to do 30 rows of rib and 40 rows of st.st down to the ankle for extra grip and cosiness.
I spent 3 days in the wilderness known as second sock syndrome, but pulled myself together today and have made a start on the next one : )
Edited to add: My lovely ducky stitchmarker is from Yarnimals
The lovely Sprite has made me loads of stitchmarkers including sheep, pigs, and 4 custom-made cats. I also have horses and elephant markers from her : )
