Knitted Finished Objects

As promised, some of my recent FO's. I'm currently laid up with a damaged knee and so have time to upload some pictures, read some blogs and catch up on some blog posting. Short scarf and hand warmers for a gift. Just have to get a brooch fixing for the flower on the scarf so it can be closed over. Yarn used is Rowan Cashsoft 4ply.

Comfy lounge socks for a gift, also knit with Rowan Cashsoft 4ply.

Socks for the man in my life. Knitted two pairs but the other pair is being washed already, although only given as a birthday gift 2 days ago. Appreciation!

And last up my Annis scarf/shawl. I knit this about 6 weeks ago and while it was difficult to get the pattern going, I'm really thrilled with the result. The pattern was from Knitty and the yarn I used is Manos Lace which is really soft and lovely to wear.
Today I knit a couple of hats for the Innocent Big Knit. I have just over 20 little hats knit now and when I'm done I'll take a photo.

I'm still here

I just realise that I haven't been blogging lately. I think I've been too lazy to bother, which isn't good enough. I love, love reading other blogs and would like to think that someone out there is reading mine, but if there are no updates, noone will bother. These are some photos of La Defense area of Paris which for some reason I absolutely love. We stayed overnight here before we attended a wedding in Tours and just had a great evening wandering around after all the traffic hassle of our drive. La Grand Arche from Nanterre side


Thumbs Up! One of the many sculptures in that are. Really modern, great buildings and really great views.
Some knitting content next posting, hopefully.
