Proving that it is never too late to finish a project, I have just finished my second sock of a pair which I started nearly one and a half years ago. I was really excited about the pattern at the time but just lost momentum… However I picked them up again as I have been getting the bus into college as the weather has been so wet and they make the ideal portable project.


The pattern is called Queen of Cups and can be found at the wonderful website here. I bought in the  Filatura Di Crosa 100% merino wool when I was visiting Venice in the depths of summer, and found Lellabella – a small knitting shop run by two very well dressed Italians.
