Snow soon?

There's already snow on Vancouver Island and in the North East of England, so I guess it's our turn next. They are forcasting snow for the weekend, so maybe I'll be able to take some photos of scarves and socks outside.

Finally, the light was a little better today than it has been the rest of the week and I was able to take some pictures of the Merino Twist socks I've just finished for my mother. The next thing is to get them sent off and then hope they arrive before the Christmas rush starts.

I loved working with the Merino Twist yarn. It's soft to the touch and knits up beautifully. The pattern was good too. Mock cables are much better than real ones for socks. When you are already knitting with 5-6 needles you don't need another thing to drop!!

  1. Snow! One of my favorites. Makes everything so magical and pure and makes knitting cozy socks and scarves even more comforting. Working with merino is so nice. Such a beautiful wool. I can't wait to see the pictures.
