Chocolate and violet socks update
Chris's socks are going very well. We have been on a working holiday for a week, staying with my younger sister. We are moving to be nearer my family soon and needed somewhere to live. We found somewhere with minimal trouble and I knitted aplenty. I left home without spare yarn and a needle so we had to improvise for the trying on session and use my mum's set of dpns for extra help. Usually, I just try the sock on but we saw a little while ago that that can make for broken needles so if I'm feeling nervous I'll thread all the stitches onto scrap yarn.
I realised I've been calling this colourway chocolates and roses but I think they are actually chocolates and violets which makes more sense. I showed both my brother out-laws and they were impressed. Noone said a man can't possibly wear that colour so sadly I think I will have to give these to my husband and not keep them for myself. The yarn is wonderful - at once crisp and squeaky and super soft.
We finished the week's holiday with a trip to the cinema to see Iron Man. It was brilliant fun and I had a strange inkling to stay to the end of the credits. I was ever so pleased that we were rewarded with a little treat which sets the scene for a sequel.
