New Socks on the Needle

Today I am mostly knitting socks.

In between a leisurely lunch with Debra and cutting the lawn, and then another glass of wine....

Want to see them? For the first time, I'm using NORO Kureyon sock wool and, despite lots of people saying they don't like it (too harsh; too thin; too twisty etc) I absolutely love it! The colours are fantastic. Now I feel it was worth (almost) the just-short-of-ten-pounds I paid for it. (Yes - just one ball).

This is a picture I took this morning:

...and now I'm just starting the heel flap:

..the colours are really extraordinary...
