WIP Wednesday- giant socks edition

So, err, hi again! *waves awkwardly!* Radio silence for over a month! Wow. So much stuff has gone on here since then! I am now working for the University of Bristol, and have somewhere to live. The commute is somewhat annoying (have you seen how hilly Bristol is??? Scary.), but apart from that, life is pretty good. I’m still getting the hang of working life and everything, so I haven’t been doing much else. Although I have found a new knitting group that meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month (I’m writing this yesterday, on Tuesday), and a bike volunteering project starting next Tuesday to go to, so I’m starting to do more things.

I have still been working on Christmas presents, in particular a pair of very nice patterned socks, which I (naturally) paired with a far too busy yarn for the pattern.

Ahh well, it all looks good. My friend is a very happy Hufflepuff, so naturally I found the closest yarn to yellow and brown I could find. And then because she has giant feet (note to self: only befriend people with small feet from now on, they’re much easier to knit socks for!) I did the ribbing in blue (because I am totally a ravenclaw).

If I’d been thinking properly, I would’ve done the toes and heel in blue as well, but I didn’t think about that. So far one sock is done, and I’ve just finished past the heel on the second sock. Why do large socks have to take so long to knit?????
