Sock, sheep and jumper

I have started on my competition sock.............however, after turning the heel I encountered a serious problem. The top of the sock is knitted in 2 colours and I have carried the yarn across the back of the work TOO TIGHTLY!! The whole of the top of the sock has bunched up and you would never get a few toes through it let alone a leg! I am going to knit the second one much more loosely and then frog the first one and do it again. Apart from that the design looks great, I'm pleased with that at least.

The posh yarn shop has now listed my sheep stitch markers on their website here....
They are selling them in twos.

I sent a photo of my jumper to Amanda at the Natural Dye Studio where I purchased the yarn, and she has asked if she can add it to the customer gallery. Of course I said yes!

And finally I made a card for my niece this morning, with a cute clown on it.

Happy New Year or Blwyddyn Newydd Dda (Welsh) to ya.

Is it bad that I still have a hangover on Jan 2 or just a sign I had a good times on NYE.

Oh, that's so disappointing about the sock! And yet so educational. ;) Congrats on the listing at Stash and Natural Dye Studio! It's wonderful!

ps: Did my email get through to you? I'm not sure if it is working properly.
