Love, love, love

Well - the Nightingale socks are proving to be a real test of me. I have now started on my 3rd sock - as, although the 2nd did go over my foot, it was very, very tight and I finally decided that it would drive me nuts. So I've gone up another needle size....

Meantime some wool that I ordered back in August finally arrived. It had been on backorder and apparently is only made in fairly small lots ... it is Madelinetosh Chunky in this gorgeous shade of Georgia O'Keefe. Not cheap but, as my sister says, if you are going to put a lot of work into something and it will last a long time you should get the best you can. And Webs do generous discounts if you order over certain price limits.  I am making a hoodie called Vivian. I am seriously in love with the colour.
