First up Jacobeans the first socks in the Sock knitting Pentathalon. I used woolbale 8ply in green. These socks used 3 balls. Fit the Bloke perfectly.

This shawl is knitted from one skein of Feista rayon boukle.

I cast on 40st and then k1,yo, knit to end on every row. I had enough left to fringe and tassell each end. This is a gift.

And lastly, My Bullets in Sockwars111.

I used stash. 5ply wool crepe. Finished this morning and washing right now.

More Milly and some socks

Here is my happy girl with her first wheels. It didn't take her very long to get the hang of sitting and scooting on it. Or walking behind it. She is so proud of herself.

Here are the Questing socks that finally killed me. Rather The Bloke will enjoy wearing them.

Why do the socks knitted by others never actually fit me?

Finally some Pentathalon socks, Jacobeans in progress. Using some vintage woolbale wool that is not supposed to be machine washable but is.

So much done and to do.

The sound of silence......................... I wish. New strange fact about me, I have weak ankles. Here is the relevance.

I was walking with Milly in my arms and my ankle rolled. I went down and didn't get her out of the way enough. End result baby with cast on.

That was before Christmas, just. So here she is Xmas day Firstly with her pressies, and later pulling herself around with her cast.

It was taken off on the 3rd, 2weeks and 5 days from it happening.

On the 1st, I did it again to my left ankle. But worse, not carrying bub (thank goodness) but I stepped down off the feed cart and over i went. 90kilos on a turned left ankle. I swear that was the most painful thing yet! Not broken, I allmost wish it was. sigh..........................

Milly is really crawling quite fast now and pulling up on things.

Made up Xmas swaps and will post them on monday. Late. Bad bad swapper. That is why the ankle happened, KARMA.
