2023 Projects 007 Kathy Socks 002

Dear Readers

These are the second pair of socks I have knit for my aunty Kathy. I started knitting them in Cape Town while I was on holiday there and then I finished them back in Scotland. As she lives in South Africa I will have to wait until May to give them to her.

2023 Projects 005 Grey and Blue Scrappy Socks

Dear Readers,

This next project was actually started in January but as it was made with lots of sock scraps I didn’t want to take it with me to South Africa and potentially lose something. So it got set aside and I have only recently picked it up and finished them off.

New Tam O ‘Shanter

Dear Readers,

A few years ago I designed some Tam O ‘Shanters in memory of my Grandmother who passed away in 2019. One of them I called Margareet in Stripes and I wear it a lot. I love the way it fits and for a lot of occasions I love the cheery colourfulness. However I do find that some times I am looking for something more subtle, so I have decided to knit myself a new one in black.
