I realise this might be torture for all youse out there on yarn diets, but I've gone a little crazy on ebay of late:And there's a little more still to come!
Promised I'd knit the boy (DS) a pair of socks this year - and he's got biiiig feet (size 13 UK - and that's not a child's size 13 either!). The yarn without a ballband is 6ply - I've not knit socks in thicker yarn yet.
Now I've got to walk the dogs - I've been laid up in bed for the past couple of days with some bug that made me gently feverish - so they've not had a decent stroll and are going a bit stircrazy. The weather has improved too - remember the deluge last weekend?
Our gardens are long and thin, like allotments - and our neighbour's garden dips down at the bottom - this is a picture of his - ours is slightly higher so stayed dry (this time!). The stream took a detour through the field and along the footpath. Was up over my wellies in places.
