Knitting for a change.

I saw this book and I couldn't resist it.  I wasn't 100% last week and when I don't feel well I chose to  knit as it needs less concentration. My fingers just do it without me having to look at it.. so I always think its relaxing.
 
This looks so good to do, each square is a different pattern, and as it squares you can do one every now and then, altho' I shall probably try to knit one every other week..
But I haven't started even one square yet because I had this gorgeous sock wool and it was calling to me!
 
I also have a red stripy pair nearly completed too.  I love knitting socks!

One of the young women  in church on sunday, admired my scarf, which was one of my crochet ones and so we started talking about crocheting and knitting.. so it looks like I will be taking one of our Wednesday meetings with me teaching those who want,....  how to crochet!
The sun has been glorious here today, more and more snowdrops are popping up, with some crocus and wild primroses in flower.. its was like spring.

Happy Days...

Super pair of socks, I too find knitting easier when I am not feeling so good.

Its always nice to pass on skills to others, maybe you could set up a crafting group near to you.

I would love to be able to knit quicker,,, but I suppose slow and steady gets there too! Brilliant socks.

Beautiful socks and your book of blocks looks great. You will be able to make a beautiful blanket with your squares.
