Getting ready for autumn

With the nights starting to draw in, and a hint of autumn in the air some mornings, I am longing to say goodbye to this dismal summer and get the socks out again to ward off the chill of winter. Working my way through a few more pairs of socks before I really do have to put away the sandals for the year. Mind you, I can't say they have seen much use - it's been more a case of wearing them in defiance, rather than through a need to keep my feet cool!

Here's the first of a pair in the Regia Kaffe Fassett line, lovely yarn to knit with and a quick sock to finish. I think there's something about the wider-striped yarns, you are concentrating so hard on finishing each stripe and looking ahead to see what colour's coming next that the whole sock goes by in a bit of a flash!

I finally got around to finishing shmoo's socks, and while I personally find them lacking, he seems to like them.

Nice! Denim-friendly too!
