I am Tail Feathered out - on Tuesday when the stitchy girls came over I felt like doing something different so I found my knitting bag. In there was one finished and one half-finished sock. The second sock is now complete and the socks have gone home with Jennifer.
I bought the sock wool 3 or 4 years ago and started knitting immediately, so the unfinished sock has been hanging around for quite some time.
This is the first star block sewn together. So many great Moda fabrics in that stack - Chocolat, Roman Holiday, Shangri-La, Poetry, Vienna Nights. I have finished two and another two are set up on the design sheet. Bec called it my "big adventure" - I think that's a great name. I wish I was brave enough to put all the squares into a bag and just sew them together as I pulled them with regardless of which colour goes where.
Back to Tail Feathers tomorrow night.
The birthday boy blowing out his candles last Sunday. Jenni made the cake for him - buttercake covered in chocolate ganache and crushed hazelnuts - v e r y nice. A view of inside the cake:
John's favourite colour combination is blue and green.
