These socks using the wool I bought in Lucca, Italy a while ago. For some reason one came out zig zag and one stripey, strange because both batch numbers were identical, I have no objection to the same but different result
These Regia socks are for Mr FF, I wasn't sure if he actually wanted a pair as bright as this, all the others I've made for him have been in sensible single colours but he said they are the best ever. I gave them to him last night, as usual he hadn't noticed what I'd been knitting, and this morning he said again and without prompting how much he likes them.
And finally a little pair for Amelia from the pattern book I received from a friend in the States, thanks Barb. Knitted in exactly the same way as an adult pair, I hope Amelia likes hers socks much as her great uncle likes his.
The final spot of colour in my life at present is of course my bruise, it has now developed some interesting shades of purple and black, but its going to be fine so thank you all for your concern.
PS on Sunday Since there have been questions, the green jumper is Bobby by Louisa Harding from Rowan's Tadpoles & Tiddlers published 1995 and still available. It's a book worth having, I've used many of the patterns several times. And I'll try to give more pattern information in future, share the love.
