Ok so I promised progress and there's not much! Mainly because I frogged about 25 rows last night and switched from Claudia Handpainted to Mama E's Pick Up Sticks Signature for the varigated yarn. The whole time I was knitting I was thinking I don't really like this - I want more contrast but I kept knitting until around 8 pm last night when I tore it all out to start again. The stitch work is simple but detailed and the Pink Dot Claudia Yarn had lots of pink in it so you couldn't really see the detail. It says in the pattern to choose either a yarn that contrasts or blends - I guess it just depends on the look you want. But....if I'm going to do all this slipping stitches and yarn forward, back, over and sideways you can be sure I want to see it.
Today it's absolutely freezing here and so it's a great day for knitting - I have some parcels to get out and then it's back to this sock.
