Its so cold here that I'm just wanting to sit and knit - I suppose I should make the most of it for as soon as the new puppy arrives with us the knitting will be taking a back seat!
I started making some socks yesterday - Hedgerow pattern by Jane Cochran. the stitches are really easy - just knit and purl and very effective.
The yarn is from my favourite hand-dyer Vintage Purls from the South Island here in NZ. All of the colours she dyes are fabulous! This one is called 'Blushing Beauty' but reminds me of the colours when Raspberry Ripple ice cream melts. Mmmm!
