A quick post today, as I'm off to do some more Christmas shopping in a bit, hopefully this will be the last trip. I haven't done a lot of knitting as my little finger has been hurting where I'm constantly bending it, so I've had to learn how to hold my yarn a different way, it's taken a while to get the hang of it but I think I've got it now, I just hope my tension will be o.k.
I'm still on the first Rosebud Sock and have nearly finished turning the heel. The Rowan Fine Art sock yarn is so nice to work with and I love the narrow stripes on the foot.
I'm still reading Knit the Season but I'm also reading Inventing the Christmas Tree by Bernd Brunner, an history of the Christmas tree. I told you I love everything about Christmas but it is a lovely little book. If you pop over to Ginny's blog which is called Small Things, you can see what everyone else is knitting and reading this week.
My festive red yarn has arrived from Tangled Yarn, it's Malabrigo Sock in Ravelry Red, a luxurious 4 ply, pure merino. I think I've changed my mind about knitting a pair of socks with it though, I quite fancy making a pretty lace beret with it. Watch this space!!!!!
Also check out Tami's blog, where you'll see more WIP's, it's a great place for finding new patterns.
Thanks for stopping by.
Gorgeous! I loveeeeeeeeee that red!!!!!
That will be a lovely, red beret. The picot edge is so pretty. What a wonderful shawl this will be. Rosebud is such a proper name for that sock.
Lovely projects and your Henslowe Shawl is gorgeous!
The red yarn is such a pretty colour! xx
Great projects, and your photos are vintage-swoon worthy! I'll have to check out that christmas tree book!
your knitting is so lovely, a red beret sounds beautiuful! hope your finger feels better! love that little book too :)
The sock is looking great. I can't wait to see what you do with the Malabrigo yarn. Great colorway :-)
You're like a steamtrain, Deb, you keep creating one fine project after the other! I can already envisage you in that red beret, will look superb on you! Ira x

Your sock looks amazing. I love the color. Good luck shopping.
Gorgeous yarn... I hope your little finger will get better soon... and Good luck with the shopping... hugs...x
That is such a lovely red! I think a beret will look great!
Love the red yarn - it'll be gorgeous either top or bottom... hat or socks!
Hope you had a good shopping day too,
ooo that red is gorgeous. I think you're right not to use it for socks, it's so beautiful it would be a shame to hide it away in shoes. A beret sounds perfect
Looks like you're working on some lovely things. Have a great weekend!
Deb I am always impressed with the amount of work you do and it is all fabulous even though you have a sore finger. Have a wonderful week and hopefully some time to yourself. Always look forward to your blog Debs, big hugs
I've got the same problem going with my little fingers (both). Just trying to slog through and finish the hat I am knitting for my son. Hope yours feels better soon.
I always love to see what you are working on..
I love the socks the stripes are lovely. You are right about the red too good to hidden away in shoes, a beret sounds perfect!
You are always so productive. I love the socks and that red yarn is simply wonderful and would make a fabulous hat. xoxo
