Half aboard at Aldershot

The first Aldershot sock is done!

I really couldn't be more pleased with it. I love everything - the cables, the colour... the yarn...

I've mentioned before that I'm using our Jungle Cat. It's a merino/bamboo blend and it's so lovely to work with. It's soft and squooshy and the bamboo gives it just a touch of silkiness. It's so nice to knit with, and even nicer to wear.

I've just cast on for the second one, and I'm challenging myself to see if I can get the second one done by the end of the month.  A week to go (how did February fly by so fast???) but I think I can do it.

Anything you're hoping to wrap up before the month is out?

Looking good! I'm hoping to finish my Aisling shawl,but it's going to be a tight one. I'm in Sock Madness this year all going well so I really don't know if I'll pull it off.

Beautiful! And so Spring-like - YAY!! How many more do you have to do (I keep losing count and I'm impatient for your e-book to come out...).

Lovely sock. I am hoping to finish sewing binding on 2 minis and finish up a shawl and maybe the wrap I have been knitting on since 2016! I am stopping it at a poncho size, since I was only halfway through the wrap size!

Gorgeous pattern! The yarn allows the design to glow.

I have some sewing projects that I would like to finish this month.

February does seem to have flown by, and the only thing that I know I'll be finished with, is our taxes...lol!
