Hi guys :)
How do you like the blogs' new look and layout? I fancied a change :)
The socks on double pointed needles are going well! After a few hiccups with turning the heel (it got ripped out about 5 times!) it is finally beginning to take the shape of a sock! I must admit i am starting to get thoroughly sick of the colour brown!
I tried it on after turning the heel but as the needles are straight they wouldn't fit over the instep so i had to quickly transfer them to a long circular. It turns out knitting with DPN's is easier than it looks once you get into the rhythm of it :)
This is the view about 1 mile from the house, i often wander down there to get some peace on nice days
Taking a break
(RIP lovely sandals :( they finally gave up and snapped last week after 2 years of hard work. They were soooo comfy!)

This was on a walk with a few friends last week, we were plagued by flies so we had to pick some bracken and wave them around our heads to keep them at bay! It is a good job there weren't many people around, what a sight we must have looked haha :D I couldn't resist snapping a pic :)

I do enjoy these walks, i may complain about the length, but in such beautiful surroundings , i find i don't notice how long we have been walking.
Do you have a favourite place to walk? A favourite view? I would love to see it :)
