Socks and sunshine

We’ve had some crazy weather in London lately. It was hot and sunny enough to sunbathe out on my balcony a couple of weeks ago, so I spent as much time outside as possible!

Then the past few days we’ve had April showers with hail, thunder and lightning! I wanted to get through some of my stash so I decided to try and make my first pair of socks. I made them on a circular because DPN’s just don’t agree with me!

I really didn’t expect them to turn out so well, or to be finished so quickly! I think it took me 5 days in total. I used the Take Five pattern. It’s really simple, but when stretched out almost looks like mini cables.

I also planted some courgettes and carrots on Easter Sunday.

I’m looking forward to seeing the first shoots come up!
