Not only did I not feel like posting here for a while, I also didn't knit a lot during summer. But I think I am back to both again.
Here are some socks in progress. I love having variety to choose from when picking up the needles ;-)
I remember being absolutely enthousiastic when starting them and I had thought taking part in another knit along would keep me knitting, but as I know now, it didn't help any. No problem, I can still enjoy knitting and wearing them on my own.
So here's the Tränendes Herz (bleeding heart) socks that I started as a kal. As ours in the back yard is a white variety I finally knew what to use that cream white yarn for.
Next are the Norfolk Rambler socks that I found in the back of the drawer and that I had completely forgotten about...
And - even one sock is already finished - plain stockinette toe ups for me, blueberries'n'cream.

Thank you for your lovely comments on our newest addition to the pack!
Here he is playing with his "nanny" Myrtille in the back yard. He makes a lot of progress in overcoming his fears. In the first days he would have run back into the house when he had heard any sound outside or seen a neighbour. Now he listens or watches for a bit then continues playing. It is good for him to have those fearless "sisters" around :-)
Thanks for visiting!

This little guy has been staying with us for about ten days now. He started off as a foster dog but we had aready considered keeping him if he would "fit" in the pack even before we sent the email to ask if he was still available.
I built a hard shell around my heart to save me from too much heartache if he would be adopted. But it was soon clear that he is a keeper and we both fell in love with him.
He is about four months now and he didn't have a great start into the world, was very shy in the beginning and afraid of people, sounds and "things" outside. But he gets more trusting and confident day by day.
More about him will follow soon!
Thanks for visiting!
