Normal knitting service has resumed. I think my knit-free holiday did me good.
This little project has been pending for months. Ever since a dear friend asked me to knit her a tea cosy in fact. I got a baaaad case of Knitter's Block with this one.
Luckily, her fast approaching birthday kicked my knitting mojo into gear.
Then there was the Stashbasket and Moogsmum June sock to attend to. At one point I doubted my ability to even cast these on as it all felt like too much effort.
Then I realised, this was meant to be fun!
Believe me, these Rhodie Gus socks are an absolute joy to knit. Deceptively simple but with enough going on to keep a knitter interested. Mine are also rather large thanks to going up a needle size. I'm happy with this though, as I like to allow for a little shrinkage.
I did cables!!
Naturally, I now have an overwhelming urge to cast on a brand new project.
Unnaturally, I've made the somewhat uncharacteristic decision to finish some current WIPs.
So, as far as I'm concerned, the remainder of the month is to be know as Just-finish-it June.
Anyone care to join me?
