Something new to wear, though I have to tell the truth: I wore these around the house, and not out.
These are the Swirl Socks, made from Opal Uni Solid 4ply in what I am pretty sure is Apple Green. It is quite old. I used 2.5mm needles and 64 stitches and did my usual pattern: top down, heel flap and gusset. I made a swirly rib pattern.
Taking into account the Wind Chill Factor it was 2*C here this afternoon. In some places it was a Minus Temperature. Hello Spring!! More snow is forecast. Yes, that's right, Daylight Saving starts on Saturday. I am wearing my Swirl socks with my new shoes. I think they go together well.
We met the Big Labrador pup on our walk today at the dam. He spotted us at the gate, ran all the way across to us and then wouldn't go back when his dad whistled. I think he remembered I had treats in my pocket. I have no pictures because I was putting the leads on Peri and Gilly to encourage him to go back to his dad. Here are Peri Naughty and Lorelai Gilmore trying out some Synchronisation and Camouflage.
I am tired today, I haven't done much, watched some TV, finished my socks, sat on the couch under my little quilt- I'm not at Trivia either, which guarantees there will be questions about politics and knitting and possibly dogs too. I have the last ten or so pages of I Shall Wear Midnight to read, and The Seven Ages of Britain, The Age of Revolution I think, to watch and then off to bed with an extra quilt and hot water bottle.
