It’s Friday and I appear to have survived my first week back at work. I’ve brought you up to date with my holiday activities and received some lovely comments. A special mention to Andre for saying that FL was so good-looking in that photo, he “made Sean Connery seem like a troll in comparison”!?! He (FL, not Sean) is still chuckling at that one! It is a bigger joke when you know how FL speaks... yeah, he DOES sound a lot like the man himself!

So – the sleeveless woollie? Well, there seems to be general agreement that Loppem, the Back to School Vest and Maude are the front-runners. I already have the yarn for Loppem, which I could use to knit the B2SV… but the more I think about it, the more I realise I fancy a more tweedy yarn for that design, one of the Cascade Heathers perhaps? So Loppem is back in pole position. I also have the yarn for Maude, so really the only decision left is which one to knit first. Casting on soon - wait and see!
Socks? Have you seen the new Loumms pattern Court Line? Emma designed it for her father’s 60th birthday, and it has all the characteristics of a good man-sock: not too plain, not too fancy, somewhat ribby, somewhat geometric. I will be casting on soon in Malabrigo Persia! I still need to finish my second December sock, Mulled Wine, but I am feeling relaxed about this.
This week I have been working on another hat – Windward, again by Woolly Wormhead. FO to follow!
Have a good weekend!
