Happy New Year!!!!

Oh dear! It's been a long time again! But I haven't been idle. I finally managed to knit these socks, with the Tofutsies yarn I was so kindly given ages ago. It knitted up really nicely, lovely and soft, in this pattern, Tidal Wave, from South West Trading. The next picture is more of a close up of the pattern, but not particularly clear.

Thanks again Shannon in New Mexico for this lovely yarn.

I haven't been idle again though. But I have been remiss in giving the things away before I took photographs to put here. I knitted another baby cardigan, similar to the one I did last year, but in different colours. I have another one to do for another baby, but haven't yet decided what to do.
I've done some things for a friend whose daughter is going to be a maid in the local Gala court in June. I knitted a cashmere shawl in the Faceted Gems pattern I did a while ago, and said never again, and not for anybody else. But it was easier this time, having done it before. It turned out well, but I didn't take pictures! I've also made the dress. It's a lacy top with with plain white satin skirt. It's got a cross over ribbon detail on the back. Depending on how it looks, I might knit the shawl again. I'm not sure it's long enough. So maybe I'll remember the photos.

The parents of the kids involved in the Gala Day are expected to raise funds for it. So I offered to knit kids socks with my leftover bits. This is the first one, but I can't do my usual and have exactly matching socks, as there isn't enough yarn. I hope it doesn't put people off buying them!
