Happy dancing

The only advantage of having enforced time off is that I'm getting more stitching and knitting done. I'm going to be off for at least another week and then I was supposed to be on holiday anyway so its going to be mid June before I'm back at work.

I finished Mirabilia's Miss Valentine at the weekend. I'm not really a girly girl but I love the pink of this design. The mill hill beads were a tight squeeze on the fabric though.



I've got Halloween fairy in progress too and I'm hoping to get it finished this week too.

Knitting wise, there are more socks in progress. I started a pair of Pomatomus socks earlier in the month and now the first sock is done. They are in Shepherd sock in the shade Tahoe. I bought the yarn from Hazy last year and as soon as I saw the Pomatomus pattern, I knew that I wanted to use this yarn to make them. The second sock is in the works.

I just happened across your blog today. I love your Miss Valentine! The sock looks so soft. I don't knit, I am envious.
I scrolled down a bit to look at your past posts and read about the pain in your heel. I am curious about it, because I have had pain in my heel for a while and it's getting worse. Would you mind emailing me about your experience? My email address is: c_l_warren@sbcglobal.net Thank you! Claudia
