Good morning, how is your week going? I had a very lazy Sunday, watching films with the family and I also cast on a pair of socks from Coop Knits Socks by Rachel Coopey.
These socks are called Pennycress, I love the delicate, swirly lace pattern, it's so pretty. I'm using Skein Queen, Blissful Duro 4ply sock yarn, it's 75% superwash BFL and 25% Nylon, this yarn has now been discontinued.
There are ten beautiful designs, this is my first pair from the book, eventually, I will knit each design, they are all cuff down but I prefer working toe-up. This pattern was quite easy to convert, it is a 8 row pattern so rather than starting from row 1, I work backwards and start with row 8.
I'm taking part in Gilly's, Yarn Along, where you show what you are knitting and the current book you are reading. I've have just started The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, I love watching Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries on TV but I have never read one of her books. I'm only a few chapters in but I already know that I'm going to enjoy this book, she has a great style of writing. Don't you love the illustration on the dust jacket, this is a reproduction of the first published edition. Check out what others have been up to this week, here.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
