Down to 1 WIP - temporarily

Today, in fact about 5 minutes ago I finished my 3rd Time Lucky Socks, these are knit using the Anniversary Socks pattern by Nancy Bush.   This was the third pattern I tried for this yarn, I tried one with travelling stitches, one with cable and finally decided to try simple lace.   Simple lace was the perfect choice for this yarn.   It's a handspun Merino/Silk blend that I overspun and then plied tightly to make it wear well.
I love them!  For the moment it means the only thing left on my needles is the Central Park Hoodie.   In a few minutes though there'll be another pair of socks for Thomas in some Opal yarn I found.   It's the type that does the fake fair-isle but it should work well for him being fairly hard wearing.   Also once my needles arrive I'll get started on some hexi-puffs too to send off to Holland Yarn Company for their Beekeepers Quilt that they'll be auctioning off to support a local charity.
