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.

I love the sock-in-progress and completely agree about 'violet' instead of 'roses' as truer to the colour of the yarn.

What did you ever decide about the dpns? Oh, and don't forget to offer us a tour of your new home :o)
