I've taken them as an opportunity to practice knitting with different colours and shapes. Below you can see a selection of my designs - I'll be posting pictures shortly of them individually.I cast on about 20 stitches, knitted a rectangle in k1 row p1 row until it was the desired length then finished it with 5 or 6 rows of k1 p1 rib for the sock edging. I then crocheted a chain of about 30 stitches as a handy loop to pull it out of the bottom of my handbag!
I'll pay more attention next time I make one and post the pattern properly soon.
I've been away from the PC lately due to the weather. It's been really cold and snowy and out water supply has frozen up. As a result it's been too cold to sit typing. I've been under a blanket knitting another blanket - I'll post pictures once it's finished (I'm currently joining knitted squares and I've still got to do the edging).
