A few days ago, I started some sock knitting - just for something to do while camping up in Fife, as I hadn't taken anything with me.
I bought Coop knits sock wool in two colours, and Jawool in a mustardy colour, and borrowed some needles (thankyou Katherine). I'm using the Artesano Wuru free sock pattern, which starts at the toe - find it here!
To start with, I had to learn how to do a closed toe cast on (there's plenty of advice on this from Mr Google). My sock toes, heels and cuffs will be mustard-colour, with two-colour, two-row stripes in between.
Above, I've just started knitting the blue stripes after the toe!
And below, is a beautiful red campion which was growing by our tent - June is "30 days wild" month, run by the British Wildlife Trusts. They challenge you to do something wild every day in June! Sign up here.
Sock update soon,
