Socks & ornies

Woohoo ... my socks are finished and they fit!!! Not quite as neat as i would have liked but not bad for a first attempt, i will definately be making some more of these. They look really cool on my feet and are so soft. The knitter at the stitchy club was real impressed that i managed to sort out the mistake on the pattern myself. DD has asked me to knit her a pair so looks like another trip to the wool shop very soon.

I wanted to stitch something a little different for Clares Miss-Tree for the church display. Stephie kindly lent me this book with the Little Miss characters in. It was really nice to stitch something so bright and colourful.

  11. Love your socks Julie. I knitted some socks years ago when I was a teen ager. I remember using 4 needles. My sister in law was knitting argyle socks so I had to try.
    I still don't think I have caught up with you on Beatrix.
