Knitting all day long!

Although I am getting on really well with my shawl/scarf my youngest GS phoned yesterday with his good news.

2 A*s and an A in his 'A' level results so will be off to study law at Nottingham UNI..but…
my hand knitted socks I've knitted for him are going into holes. 
He loves to wear them when he gets in from college, so I have to knit some posthaste!! 

Fortunately I had some sock wool, so I could get started right away.
So no excuses I have to knit, knit, and knit all day long.
I wish!!
I do love how my shawl is working out, I am onto the stripe section and have started using the ruby colour, it is gorgeous and I love the way it looks; but I do like to knit socks too and don't need a pattern I have knitted so many! Do you know any items so well you don't need a pattern?

Congratulations to your GS, all his hard work has been rewarded with great grades. I am in awe of your sock knitting skills, they are indeed amazing.

Your grandson sounds very knit-worthy!

Love the shawl! The ruby color is going to look awesome!

Well done to that young man, wishing him success as he enters university life. He'll love those new socks.
