These will be the world war 11 socks.
The wool is Kingcole ZigZag and the colour is Camouflage, 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon. I thought that it was a perfect match for the pattern.
It has grown by two pattern repeats since this photo and now measures 36 cm. 7 more to do, I will plough through that in front of the telly later, and do a bit more on the sock.
The pattern is from a Peter Gregory book and I quite like all the patterns in there, good job that I have a stash of Aran wool in natural. Better than battleship grey. It is really called Graphite and is in Stylecraft Special Aran, 100% acrylic. I am no yarn snob and this is a joy to work with, smooth and not splitty at all.
Dinner is in the oven, an easy peasy dish, Mary Berry,s roast potato and sausage supper. Green peppers, red onions, lots of garlic and a good handful of thyme ( I don't chop the leaves just throw it all in, they fall off the stems anyway).
Last night was pasta with a spicy sauce, a bit too spicy as I underestimated the strength of my chillies. I made a chopped salad and scattered some over the top along with a squirt of cucumber and mint dressing and cured the burn.
I am so glad that you can not smell my dinner, it is amazing, I am rumbling and grumbling. I just popped into the kitchen and gave it all a bit of a stir round, I can barely wait.
Ben has had a bath and is sprawled over his cushions snoring away.
I am off now to get some mushrooms ready as a side dish and ten whip Ben out for a little walk.
