finished socks



today was definitely a day to stay inside - drizzle or heavier rain pretty much all day kept even the dogs inside most of the time! it felt more like a wet late autumn day than a day in the middle of august:( I used the time to knit some of the bias tape - but after a while it became so boring, that I exchanged it for the second sock in opal yarn. the leg part is a waffle pattern, 2 rounds of knit, 2 of 2 knit, 2 purl - the rest was a basic no-thinking-required sock. by accident I discovered that on a german tv channel there was a "Miss Marple" night running - so I finished the second sock during "Murder most foul":)) I just love Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple - slightly excentric - but of course, being a knitter herself, she cannot do wrong for me! none of the other actors who played Miss Marple even managed to come close....
I also did quite a lot of my needlepoint - finished part two, started part three, but discovered a counting mistake halfway through and had to undo part of the stitching:(( after that I wasn't in the mood to keep going. tomorrow seems to be the same weatherwise, so maybe I can catch up and finish part three!

What a joy - knitting and watching Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple. My knitting and tv watching was Mountain, a new BBC series. Similar to Coast. Last night Mountain featured the Cairngorms in Scotland. Just whets my appetite for another trip to Scotland.

ah, scotland - I haven't been there for years, and I do like it so much! there was a short bit about the isle of skye on german tv recently - and I could have packed my bags that second....

Hallo Bettina,
Schottland ist auch eines meiner Traumländer, besonders die Westküste. Ah, neulich hatte ich Nostalgie und musste an den herrlichen Ausblick von Iona zur Insel Mull etc. denken. Das war so was Schönes ..... Nostalgie. Wir hatten ganz tolles Wetter und ein herrlich blaues Meer ringsherum. Gruß Juliana

I love Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple too. Your socks are lovely. Wish I could knit as fast as you.
