And just like that, we are in October, I have no idea what happened to September, It seemed to be here and gone in the blink of an eye. There has been so much going on that I have not blogged about and to catch up in one post would be too much, I'll have to try and catch up over a few posts.
I did eventually finish my Whitmore sweater. You may remember me saying at the beginning of July that I only had the sleeves to knit, well they were done during July and it was washed and blocked while we had all that lovely warm weather.
I'm really happy with it and would love to knit another one sometime. We're not quite into jumper wearing weather at the moment, but I'm sure I'll get the wear it pretty soon.
I also finished two more pairs of socks.
These are knit in West Yorkshire Spinners, the colourway is Goldfinch with a contrast heels, toes and cuffs (also WYS). I didn't bother trying to match the pair, I think the saying for this among seasoned sock knitters is that they are sisters, not twins 😉
Incidentally, this was the first commercial sock yarn I ever purchased, quite a few years ago now, I saw Julie, (from Julie's stitchyknitter journal) knitting it at a meet up we both attended. I loved the colourway and bought it soon afterwards, even though I had no idea then how to knit socks!
