Insouciance

There's plenty of knitting happening at the House of Paisley. These socks used up the leftovers from three other pairs of socks. Sock recipe is the Discovery Sock from Cat Bordhi's "Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters" which I'm enjoying a great deal more than I anticipated.
Also on the go is a handspun cardigan (just the sleeves to go), self-striping train-knitting socks, and some secret December-birthday knitting.
I'm getting quite excited as my bathroom is to be renovated (ie: completely gutted and replaced) at the end of September. I've lived with my tired, beyond-redemption-as-retro 1960s pink tiles for long enough. Hopefully all goes well without too many catastrophes and I will be able to post before and after pics in my October blog post (since I seem to be averaging just the one post a month at the moment).
