I couldn't find a pattern that is suitable for the tension I got from the Opal yarn and instead of the 2.5 mm needles recommended I decided on 2 mm. So I'm winging it with the help of these magazines. I've had the Knit & Style for ages and never gave the sock instructions a second glance and they turn out to be so good, distinct colours for different parts.
More sock yarn arrived via Mona (again) and in between her to-ing and fro-ing from the hospital, left the yarn for me to collect. The plain brown is for DH who has always insisted that sock knitting is too much trouble. But I shall prove him wrong.
Pek Wah and I share the same birthday and would call each other to wish ourselves a Happy Birthday every year. She suggested we no longer celebrate birthdays from now but the anniversary of our xxx (a favourable year like 30th?) birthday! That way we'd stay 30 forever. Now, isn't that much much better?
