Believe it or not, I don't just sit and knit socks. Before Christmas I did some creative work and designed a protective garment for a very young artist as a Christmas gift.
I used a little girl's dress pattern but as this is supposed to be an apron with sleeves, the back covers just the shoulders. The material is PU coated so the little guy will remain dry even when he uses watercolours.
Then I have been working on the Splendids again:
As I was itching to see what the suggested sashings would look like, I tried them on a new block:
And I crabbed some more blocks to see how they work together. It seems that my shadow grey is very close to a solid light blue I have used for the blocks and therefore a darker colour would have looked better.
This is what I bought and cut so this it is going to be.
Naturally I have been knitting too, so ten new pairs of baby socks are ready to be delivered.
My very pale blue 100% wool is almost used up, but no end of the project is in sight:
My sister P who is not a knitter, wanted to participate in this national project and bought four big balls of sock wool in blue and white for me to knit on her behalf. This means about 20 or more pairs of new socks. Luckily the Eurosport channel offers so much snooker, tennis and cycling that I will have a cozy time with Mr. K by my side and a knitting in my hands.
