Sock a Month Knitalong 3

Will I finish in time?

That's the big question this month. This is all I've achieved in sock knitting this month!!!

Not impressive is it?! I cast these on when I caught the train from Cornwall to London just ove a week ago and knitted most of the foot on the train. Then while I was in Norway last week I did a bit of knitting on this while in hospital visiting my Grandfather (he's had a stroke) and managed to turn the heel and start the cuff. That's about as far as I've got.
the yarn is Posh Yarn's Eva 4ply (silk/cashmere) in Alchemy (I think) and it's lovely to knit with. Tend to use mainly plain colours as I like doing lace and cable patterns.

These are my own generic toe up sock pattern whihc I was planning to use for a toe up sock tutorial on my website in the near future. But there has been so many family things going on lately. My grandfather in Norway having a stroke and last night my Grandma fell and broke her femur. I've just come back from a week in Norway and it looks like I may have to go again. It's not easy living abroad. And ofcourse I've got my girls to look after here.

I've done some other knitting though. Started another shawl - my own design. A shawl from Victorian Lace Today and a shrug/wrap - my own design. But I need to get back into socks. Pics of my other wips are on my blog.
I've also got plans for some fair isle socks using traditional Norwegian designs. But I've got to finish these socks first. Although I may start the new socks first............... I'm so not disciplined!!!
