Time flies

Where has the past few months gone? It zipped along and all of a sudden it was December and now the New Year has broken and I have not yet caught up.

I am going to try and be a more faithful blogger this year. My lazy habits might be difficult to break so I promise nothing and offer no resolutions but I shall to keep this bit of my world a little more up to date than last year.

As this is the first day of the new year (just, it's almost the second) I present my first post and with it my current work in progress.
Ta Da!!!
From finished things

This is the Masonic Lodge sock pattern by Emma Haigh aka Erqsome knits and it's available as either a free Ravelry download or on her website.

The yarn is Trekking XXL in colour way 177 which I think looks a bit like a messed up German flag. This is the first time I've used Trekking and by the small gods is it hard on the hands. It feels like iron and I'm just hoping that it softens a bit once washed. So far I've done a complete sock and am now just before the heel flap on the second so I'm getting there.

I had a mad idea that I was going to knit a sock a week but I think that could be a bit ambitious so might limit it to a pair of socks every month but we shall see, I never know when my interest will be piqued and I'm off on a bout of knitting.
