First pair of socks ever

Here are my Bacchus socks:




And I started a scarf in this lovely Lobster Pot bulky yarn - I've had it for a few years, and I have had no idea what to make with it. I'm not entirely sold on this scarf.



I might like to make it into these slippers, but it seems too nice to just pad around the house in. I just don't know. I guess I'll keep knitting it into a scarf.

Well, except that I think it's time to take a wee break from knitting, and focus a little more on finding more work, especially with a recession coming on, it seems like it might be a good idea.

Oh my, my first pair of socks are barely fit to be seen in public, so I'm doubly impressed with yours.

I love the bobble/tree element on the socks & the yellow colour.

Heck! You don't do things by halves do you! Bacchus is a serious pattern for a first sock. They look superb of course.

btw where the bobbles a pita?
