I'm making some progress on the Aran socks I'm knitting for my sock pal. Here's a photo of how far I've gotten to date.
The picture doesn't do the colour justice. It's actually a much richer green. But at least you can see the texture and the Aran stitches.
I'm making these socks with 100% Aran wool that I picked up while I was on Inish Oirr last August. I was there learning the secrets of Aran knitting from a resident of the Aran Islands. It was an extremely cool experience!
I hope my sock buddy likes them!
And for some gratuitous cutitude, here's a photo of Reuben and my cousin, Sean, from Christmas. I think the dog's the cuter of the two but you decide for yourselves!
Have a great weekend, M
