Oh yes there has been knitting.

I love making mittens. This is my own pattern (the one I always use) but this time I jazzed it up with some Fair Isle stylie patterning - very simple but what I wanted was the warmth and fuzziness of the angora yarn to fluff up the other yarn and add warmth to the insides - it worked.
These are my Eyelet Twig socks - again my own design. The lace runs in 3 panels down the cuff and one down the foot. The top is moss st and this is used again just prior to the toe shaping. The heel flap is knitted in a twisted rib with gs border. I used Opal dye your own and coloured it with Kool Aid.
