Works in Progress

I haven't posted any finished projects recently as I've been knitting away on Tempting a pattern from It's a summer sweater knit in the round and it's done in 2x2 ribbing. So it's pretty easy knitting but it's turning out very nicely. I'm using Sublime merino silk cashmere aran and it's lovely to knit with and looks pretty when knit up. I have visions of myself wearing this on a cool summers evening while drinking a nice pint outside McGanns in Doolin...

I'm also knitting my first pair of socks. I'm using a Universal Toe Up sock pattern again from Knitty. I think Knitty is the best free pattern site on the net. Lots of lovely easy to follow patterns graded by difficulty. The socks are in regia self striping yarn and are turning out quite well. I'm almost at the heel of my first sock. Hopefully I'll manage to knit both of the socks and not suffer from the dreaded second sock syndrome. I'm still not convinced about sock knitting. They are a lot of fun to knit and pretty portable. I do wonder though are hand knit socks that much nicer to wear? I'll have to wait to find out I suppose.
