This is place for me to natter and a lot of it is about knitting.

Plain but pretty.
Plain socks, pretty yarn. My plain ole vanilla sock pattern in a UK 5, knit on two 2.75mm circular needles. I used an afterthought heel and I love how the yarn goes swirly on the heel.
The yarn is Misti Alpaca which is a blend of 50% alpaca, 30% merino wool, 10% silk and 10% nylon. The colourway is called Mirriam and is quite autumnal. The yarn is very soft and I just adore the colours.
