And we spent a few minutes reading about and talking about the archangel Michael during breakfast this morning. I actually think it's kind of nice to have the festival on a different day because it seems to allow for more discussion without the distraction of anticipatory excitement.
As for my WIPs, I completed Finn's socks a few nights ago. Socks and slippers seem to thrill him so his excitement over the socks completion was so cute to watch.
You can see a better picture of the actual color of the socks here. I really like the white flecking in this colorway. I made these socks a 1/2 inch bigger each in the leg and foot to accomodate for growth so they're a little bigger than the last pair.
Doesn't he look sweetly proud of his new mama-made socks?
And I started another pair of socks, for the hubby this time. I really to finish up a few things and stop starting new projects for now!
What are you working on right now?
Love the pride he shows in his mama-made wear. I am working on a Christmas gift for a dear friend who has relocated to Ontario and needs a lap blanket for the upcoming winter.ReplyDelete
Happy Michaelmas to you Joy!ReplyDelete
I adore the blue socks and the colour of the yarn in the last photo is beautiful! I am still busy on my Aestlight Shawl and dyeing up Alpaca pencil roving.
Happy Michaelmas! Those socks that you made for Finn look wonderful. I want to attempt my first pair of socks sometime this winter.ReplyDelete
Happy Michaelmas!! I love the socks, I never tried knitting socks I wonder why...ReplyDelete
I'm finishing up a cardigan but I'm very afraid that I will run out of yarn. I bought it some time ago in France and I have no plans of going in the near future..oh well I can always frog it ;o)
Shirt for myself! Happy Michaelmas!ReplyDelete
