Forget-Me-Not

No, I'm not going anywhere - (apart from a couple of days in Paris the week after next) -it's the colour of my latest beret.

For this one I plied together a sky-blue Shetland fibre and a creamy-white merino. I do love the combination - it reminds of Limousin summer skies...

Sorry the pictures are not too great - it's hard to take photos indoors and the flash gives a rather harsh result.  I just couldn't wait for the daylight!

That's how I'm thinking of this pair of socks, for my SIL, Marcus.  He has size 11 feet! I'm thinking this will be his last pair...

So far I've only just finished the first one.

Lovely beret, beautifully spun yarn and I love the colour 'forget-me-not'.

I too know the frustration of knitting extra large socks.......you have my sympathy. x

I love the colour of your beret, so soft and very flattering to wear i imagine.

Your big sock is fantastic! Well done for persevering with such a mammoth footwear project :) I'm sure your SIL will love them x
