>I’ve been playing with some of the fantastic yarn that I received for Christmas & cast on with the Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe for the Yarn Over Cable socks from Sensational Knitted Socks on Christmas day.

I have 100g of this DK yarn so chose a toe up pattern to make sure that I got as much sock out of it as possible. I’ve never done short row toes or heels before so it was an education & a fair bit of tinking took place but I’ve got the hang of it now.

The first sock was completed in 3 days but I had to put the yarn aside whilst I finally finished my obligations for the Afghan Square swap. The squares are all blocking now & will be sent by airmail tomorrow – apologises for the delay to those who will receive them soon.

So the second sock was cast on this evening & below you can see my progress:

My arms are protesting at all this knitting but I’m enjoying myself. I go back to work on Wednesday so the pace is sure to slow down soon
