I might have forgotten to take any food - but I did remember to take some knitting with me to Wales. One FO (one of those silly funky fur type scarves) and nearly finished first February sock:
I finished it later that same weekend and I'm well into the second now - but I'll wait to get the camera out for the finished pair now, methinks. BTW, I've always used a large circular needle for my socks, and pulled a loop or two through. Noone showed me how to do this - it was just something that developed out of necessity. Imagine my surprise when I discover that this is what is known as the 'magic loop' technique. I'd always thought that this 'magic loop' thing was far more complicated.
