The cross stitch finish is a design by Sandra Sullivan called Crows a Plenty. Stitched on 30 count linen using the lovely Gentle Arts threads,
Two pairs of socks came off the needles, a vanilla sock in self patterning yarn by Regia (bottom), and my first patterned sock, by which I mean I had to keep the pattern going down to the toe - Hermiones Everyday sock, a free pattern on Ravelry (top)
So, as a reward, I bought some more sock yarn to knit a pair of socks for DH. He chose West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply in the Blue Tit colourway. He likes long socks so plenty of TV knitting coming up!
And as a treat for all my hours of lovely slow stitching and knitting, I bought this beautiful project bag from Fondant Fibre which came with a pretty stitch marker, a bar of Knitter's soap in Mahogany, and a lemon lollipop!
I hope that you enjoy some slow stitching this weekend.
