While I was unemployed during the week just gone I (naturally) knitted quite a lot. So much in fact that I managed to produce a whole pair of socks (my third pair). This means I am getting quicker at knitting socks: I was knitting my first pair of socks while I was on holiday in Croatia after my exams and it took me the whole week to finish one, I finished the other one during the week I got home. My second pair or socks were for my boyfriend who has giant feet so they took ages to knit but for different reasons. In the photo my most recent pair are the bluer pair on the right. My first ever pair are the other ones.
I still have what seems to be a fair amount of yarn left over in both colours so I think I won't give up on (or take a break from) the sock knitting just yet. I think I will try my hand at some of the Summer Sock Collection from Spun magazine. I hope I will be able to do the classic trainer sock type design but if it looks like I will be running out of yarn I will hopefully be able to turn them into the pedicure flashing variety also featured...
