yummy socks

Anyone who's been following my knitting knows that not much has been happening lately.  I started these socks quite a while ago and have done nothing on them for ages.  The yarn is Yummy Yarn, 115 gm, from Granny Square on King Street, Newtown, Morris and Son's newish store here, just a walk away for me. The colour is more aqua and less turquoise than shows here.  The fabric feel great, the yarn is pleasant to work with but I'm not  enamoured of the way they have been dyed.  I am not a fan of pooling and to me, these border on pooling.

As my personal journey draws to a close of this current stage with the auction tomorrow, I suddenly felt the urge to have a finished object to match!  I dug these out this morning and finished the second leg and turned the heel.  Really, there's not that much more to do to them.

They've been a good thing to do today.  I don't feel nervous in the same was as a few days ago where i had a lump of lead in my stomach and couldn't get warm, but currently there are lots  of butterflies flying around there.

I've been sitting just plodding away on these.  Stitch after stitch, row after row.  It's  been quite calming.

I see the pooling, kind of ziggy zaggy pooling. I don;t mind a little pooling myself but I can see how it could be annoying. The colour is lovely though.
I hope everything goes well, and that your stitches keep you calm in the face of the auction 'storm'.
