Some knitting (for a change) and a wedding...

Have been concentrating on knitting a pair of toe up socks in some sock yarn from The Yarn Yard (as well as knitting the final version of the Jacob: nearly finished it, will put it up with the pattern next week). This yarn was a present from Stash and has been sitting in mine for at least a year... The pattern is Wendy D Johnson's double eyelet rib sock and it really suits the yarn. I've turned the heel on the first sock, but this picture was taken earlier in the week. It's so portable - which is just as well because I went to a wedding last Friday and it was really easy to take this along in my bag and whip it out when the opportunity presented itself. Me, obsessed? nah, mate. Doesn't the bride look lovely? The wedding was held at Haldon Belvedere - you can see this building for miles around - in fact it's up such a high hill that we were worried the bride wouldn't make it - she was fabulously late (an hour!) - as she was being driven in an ancient Austin by our neighbour (who bought the car off of Ebay!). If you climb up to the top of the tower you can see in full circle - the sea, the moors, home! The event went on into the wee hours - good party. And in the evening she's a singer in the band - (Oh bladee, oh bladah, la la la la life goes on!) That's the bride on the mike (she sang three songs) and the groom on the keyboards - and they played the fastest version of 'Superstition' I've ever heard, amongst other things.

Adore the staircase shot (looks just like an ammonite, love it). Just how much sock knitting did you sneak in with all the loveliness and excitement around you?
