Righto. I found out about the yarn harlots knitting olympics and so have joined.
I have finally decedided to knit socks. Not just any socks, noooo, these are Black socks for my darling.
They will be knitted toe-up, sherman heel/toes, 3/2 rib until the yarn runs out. Or I will have to join yarn in and knit for 25cm for the leg. I feel I will have to increase along the foot as his instep is 11" round and the ball of his foot is 9" . His ankle is 11" but his calf increases to 16". Seriously BIG calves.
Hey seriously muscly bloke here, once a weightlifter and rugby player. So you get the image. mMMM.
So my Knitting Olympic Challenge is to knit him 2 or more pairs of BLACK as sin socks and he will love me and hug me and love me etc.......
Looking forward to cool days not like yesterday 44degs!! I hate hot weather. More to come on Thursday. Bugger.

Here are some socks I just finished for my 3yo son. They are different, not that he cares. To him they are mummy socks for ME. I thought the two balls of yarn were the same pattern, but as is obvious, they weren't. I will knit the mates for these socks later.
Here is a back view of my little darling. Notice the semi parched lawn. This is with the washing water going on it.
This cardi is knitted in handspun alpaca. Natural colours. I started this when I was PREGNANT with this child.
I finished the knitting it two days ago.
If I wanted to be mean I could make him wear it this winter. But I won't. It will go into the "gifts" basket.
But first of course I do have to find some appropriate buttons.
What do you think? Eh.
I did loose the pattern so I have adlibbed the front closure between the cables.
