Wet and wild

Wet and wild pretty much describes the year so far around here. I've been off work for the past week and I've spent most days indoors because the weather has been so awful. I had big plans for my week off - I was going to paint my living room and think about paint colours for my bedroom but post Christmas lethargy has set in. I have moved some furniture around and tidied out some stuff that I no longer need but thats pretty much it.

I did knit a pair of socks though.



I'm taking part in a Sock a month knit a long on Crafty threads 'n' yarns forum
and this pair is January's pair. They are knit in Posh Yarn's Lucia yarn in the shade Highland mist. The yarn has been in my stash for a while so its good to see it knitted up. I do have quite a bit of it leftover as I do with most of my sock yarn as I have quite small feet. I'm starting to have quite a collection of leftovers. I took a class with Kerrie Allman of Hipknits at Harrogate which was about knitting small flowers for decoration so I think some of it might end up being used up that way.

Stitching wise, I've started Noah's sub but there isn't really enough progress to see yet. I have also been stitching on some exchange things too, which I can't share either but look out for pictures of them next month once they reach their destinations.

Fun socks, they look comfy and warm. Over here we are getting ice and snow, so comfy and warm is really good. :)
