Hey presto - socks finished

Well my first socks went pretty smoothly. It was a toe-up pattern with a pointy toe.
Second socks will be with a flatter toe using a Turkish cast-on - something new.
And using another Schoppel Wolle (Admiral Ombre) from Vintage Purls

between socks

I had started on the next child's sweater and thought I had better finish that before the big socks or it might never happen and just clutter up my already cluttered-up living space.
So there it goes - same as the first one - but for someone in Australia so not likely they will end up in the same place in the same sweater.
And then onto the socks - these are knitted 'toe-up' and on a circular needle - using the Magic Loop method. The wool is Schoppel Wolle - Admiral Tweed Bunt bought from the very handy, local Vintage Purls

And now for something completely different!

Yes - it's a sock. A mini sock to be precise. I went to a workshop yesterday and learnt the basics of sock knitting by making this one. Now for something bigger....
