I got a bit fed up with the sock thing. I think I really need to find a solution to my wide-foot issue before I can knit socks with "real" sock yarn. None of the patterns seems to be big enough for my foot, and the one I did cast on - 4 times! - was just giving me the pip. I decided I was knitting it for knitting's sake really, so it is no more. I also decided that the yarn was far too pretty to put on my clodhoppers, so I checked out Ravelry and found something a little more suitable. I have cast on the Omo Scarf and this is my progress so far:
I'm really happy with how this is turning out. It's a nice easy lace pattern and it looks really good, although my photo probably doesn't do it justice. I have discovered that I have a problem with counting though, so I'm hoping this project will help to rectify that! Not sure how long this will turn out. I'm going to just keep on knitting until I run out of yarn. I may need to cast on something else to break up the monotony a bit though. Although I do like the repetition of this and it's making for good tv watching knitting.
