FOA*FOA*FOA *Finished object alert*

I can’t believe I actually finished my Business Casual socks (pattern) in time for the KAL that has been hosted at the Celtic Cast On. Just in time. Where are the times when I had enough knitting time to take part in two sock KALs at once and there was even time to knit on something else. Now I just manage to squeeze in enough time to get a pair of super short socks off the needles in two months…
No, I don’t whine, 'cause I do know where the time has gone. Things change, that’s how it is and I accept it. Am even happy with it!
Back to my Business Casual socks – as the yarn is rather thin I made them short, just two pattern repeats before I started the heel flap. I love how they came out, and I love the soft warm grey colour of this yarn. But to be honest, the yarn split like hell and it was no fun to do all those crossed  stitches. But that’s history, the socks are done, the yarn is used up, the socks will make me happy in the coming weeks as it is still cold in our neck of the woods, around 0°C, a few snow flakes coming down now and then, and a cold cold wind that makes everything worse. And the next fall/winter will come for sure.
Check some of the other socks from the KAL over at Kelly’s blog, there are some great colourways. Some people even knit more than one pair…

You can click on the photos to enlarge them but I promise to take better pics as soon as a few sun rays will hit our backyard while I am at home :-)

Welcome Spring

Welcome back to our northern hemisphere, sun.
If just the rain would get a bit warmer I would already be happy!!!
I seem to have lost all my mojos lately-knitting, blogging, blog reading, taking pictures... Right now I am fighting off a cold which doesn't make things better. It was good though being able to spend most of four days in bed/on the sofa sleeping!
I am so looking forward to the change to summer time on march 31st and having an extra hour of daylight in the evening after coming home from work, and to the two extra days off work on the easter weekend!
Time spent with my loved ones is good time :-)

Thanks for visiting!
