So as the end of the month approaches my Polly Jean socks sit untouched those heels have put them off the 'go to' project list and I am being silly so they MUST get finished this weekend as a new pattern awaits for next month and it looks like fun!

But also I need to fess up to a bout of startitis (I know I didn't NEED any more project but I wanted them), I loved the nutkin socks that Allison is doing and whilst in Chester on Sunday I found a new wool shop in the Rows (RKM wools) and they had lots of lovely sock yarn so of course some had to come home with us plus 2 skeins of Debbie Bliss pure silk. So I have cast on the socks and a shawl with some lovely NDS baby alpaca, cashmere and silk - so soft to knit with!

The other good news is that finally we hope to get a couple of days over in Norfolk, we decided to give the car a long running in stint and go over for the Bank holiday weekend, I have missed my favourite place so much so fingers crossed that old 'Bessie' makes it there and back!

Hopefully some pictures of 'finished socks' soon!

Ha ha! Sorry about the Nutkins! They are lovely though, especially the top hem .... I'll post some pictures soon. Let me know what you do with the skeins of pure silk. I have three I bought on a whim and don't know what to do with!! A muzzle seems like a good idea at the moment .....
