My first sock's almost done; just a bit more of the foot to knit, then the toe to negotiate. I'm fairly pleased so far, although the picking up along the heel flap could be neater. I have to say that I'm now totally sold on knitting with two circs!
The book in the photo came from eBay and it's got some lovely designs inside. I already have the cover shawl Lotus Blossom Lace; a present knitted by Liz for my birthday last year.
It's knitted in a cashmere/lambswool yarn (Oh, no! Not purple again....) and when not being worn, lives in a vintage nightdress case embroidered with hyacinths.
