sketchbooks and socks

I'm trying to use a sketchbook again so I started it with one of my favourite pictures. I took it in an artists studio at spike island a few years ago, the plane was just sitting on a bookshelf in there... anyway, next step, do some drawing.

Remember those socks I made at christmas? I had some yarn (some? yeah... alot!) leftover - I think when I brought it I was going to make mittens or something then changed my mind - so I knitted myself a pair too. They are very cosy! It's half-term this week so I'm looking forward to catching up with friends and knitting. The knitting plans: finish bag, finish cardigan and start tartan wrap. Possibly start some baby pieces as a ridiculous amount of friends are expecting!
