Socks, Sewing, & not much more

Hello again. There isn't a lot going on here these days - I'm still working on the Mystery Stole, have a pair of TomSocks on the needles, and am making way too many shawl pins.

Things that I've made over the past few weeks include a matching purse and wallet (no photos yet), four shawl pins (again with the no photos), and a pair of LoganSocks.

The socks are DK weight Colinette Cadenza, in the colour Castagna, worked on 2.75mm needles. This is my own pattern, toe up, with padding under the ball of the foot, under the heel, and at the back of the heel as well. I tried a different finish, and love it - purl a round, knit a round, three rounds of moss stitch, a knit round, a purl round, and cast off in the lace manner.

I will try to get a shot of the shawl pins over the next day or so, and post them soon.

I'm boring myself, so am going off to feed the critters. Sigh.
