Socks and lace

I have finished the Kai-Mei socks. Unfortunately they are not for me. The yarn is Tofutsies and I have to say its a lovely yarn to work with. It also feels good on the feet. I've made a couple of pairs of socks out of this yarn and I find they are ideal for those slightly cool days.

Its rather difficult to bring out the lovely sweeping design without a pair of feet in them!

I've succumbed to my KAL addiction yet again. This time it is another KAL from Knit & Knag designs called Silvester.

I've already completed 2 pattern repeats and I started on the third repeat last night. Talk about instant gratification - this is a really fast knit. The yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills 2 ply lace. No idea of the colourway because I found this yarn in the magical backroom at the Mill itself. I suspect it is one of their colour experiments. Its a marled yarn made up of a deep red and a gorgeous blue.

Those socks do look better with feet in them!

I could lent you my feet for the socks?

Sylvester looks very regal in that yarn, it is a great color choice! :)

I agree with T.

I happen to have some Tofutsies in my stash that I would happily send to you. It just sits there and I don't know if I will ever use it. PM me on Ravelry with your address.
Merry Christmas!

Oh J you are far too kind - thank you!

Tempting, that KAL... You shouldn't do that to me, I must finish my cardi! And my Klabouter shawl, and a few more things!
Did you know Moni (Klabouter)will start a special Christmas shawl KAL? Too many temptations in the knitting world.
