Sometimes when you are feeling a little flat, all it takes to brighten your day is a beautiful bright yarn and a project that is just for you - with no deadlines, no expectations - just you and the yarn. For me, I find it especially important in winter as the cold and the dark makes everything a bit more of a chore.
My "ray of sunshine" project at the moment is my Scrambled Egg Socks - a name given to the project by my lovely husband which will suit the socks very well. The design is a very simple, straightforward free pattern called "Nice Ribbed Sock" by Glenna C aka The Crazy Knitting Lady - who writes a really informative knitting blog. The yarn is Jodulbug Creations - 4ply merino in Nasturtium.
I am hoping it all works out as I have already found about a dozen other socks I would like to knit!
