Often known as What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks, I was very busy at work and also a bit under the weather, nothing at all serious, just feeling a bit blah.  Nowhere near as blah as Julia must have been feeling I would guess, hope you’re well rested and on the mend now.

I have a desk but it has things on it that I can’t show you at this time, so I’ll do a quick catch up of my knitting!


At the front, the yellow socks are finished and represent pair No6 for this year.  On the right is a simple textured pattern called Hermione’s Everyday Socks, based on the character in the HP series of books and films, there’s an entire range of patterns for the HP characters, places, plants and heaven knows what else, I might knit some more.  The second one of this is underway at work during lunch breaks. In the middle is a new sock, a Mystery Knit-Along, the pattern was split into four and a new clue (the next section) is released on four consecutive Sundays, it’s turned out to be very pretty and fun to knit.  One that hasn’t been fun to knit though is lurking over on the left.  I started it in April and it’s based on old, traditional Gansey patterns, and to be frank, it bored the pants off me.  I can’t see it having a partner any time soon to be honest, but I do intend to finish it sometime!

Here’s a close up of a couple of them.

This one because although it may be simple, it does wonders for the cheap, self striping yarn I bought when I first started knitting socks a couple of years ago.


And this one because I love the colour, love the yarn (it has Alpaca in it), I love the twisted rib at the top, and you can’t see it well at the moment, but it’s a really pretty pattern.

Chin, chin.  Must knit now!
