A quick post to show my work in progress on a Lily of the Valley lace shawl which I started last night.

Knitting: Lacy Socks

lace sock

I’ve been quite slack with writing about details of my knitting projects so here is another one; I am knitting these lacy socks for my mum for a Christmas present.  I know that she wears bed socks so I thought that these would made a pretty pair for her – of course she my choose to wear them as day socks under her boots in the winter, by this is her choice.

I bought lots of 3 ply wool in cream when I found out I was pregnant and then never really used all that much (apart from to knit an alphabet blanket) so this is being knitted up using this wool that I have a plentiful supply of!  I also think that the lace work would look really pretty as a cuff on a jumper or cardigan (I tried it on my wrist before working the heel and it looked very impressive) so maybe I will get started on a nice jumper – although it will take a long time to complete due to the needle size I am using (2mm!)… watch this space…
