Moving on

 Socks finished! These ones had a flatter line at the toe whereas the first pair had a pointy toe.
I think the flatter line works better for me.
The good thing about finishing a project is that you get to start on another one! And the next is
Glad by Sarah Hatton. It was in the Rowan 39 magazine. It is a short wrap cardigan and made using Rowan Kidsilk Haze - which is a little slow to knit but is soooooo soft I can't wait to wear it..

 Well I have been away for a few weeks - mostly for a photog. workshop in Montana but also managed to get to Vancouver, Seattle, Portland and Yosemite. I took the socks with me but didn't get too much done - I've made more progress since getting back and catching up on my TV viewing.

The letters below I made as part of a "Pay it Forward" craft challenge - they started out as white and I painted, decoupaged and varnished (around 25 coats) them. The varnish has been curing in my absence and now they are ready to post. Going to Auckland, Washington DC and Mali !
