I've the next pair selected from the brown bags I made up a few weeks ago. Alas, the next pair is for my dad, and he has rather long feet. So while I made a cracking start I don't think I'll be able to pull a pair a week off my needles again until the socks are either for me or my sister.
And instead of casting them on right away, I'm going to knit on a blanket. Might start tomorrow instead :D

Alas, in true Belfast style, it rained on us. We went into Belfast Castle for some chips, cream scones and coffee, a little bit of knitting too. But then we decided to call it a day :(
So Nicky and I retired to my car to have our own WWKip where she finished 3 projects, finished 2 balls of yarn and I cast on a baby blanket (because I'm not allowed to knit socks)
I think next year I will skip the WWKip organising and turn up if one is planned. It always seems to rain on me...

So in the meantime, I'm working on my wips. There's the broken clapotis that Nicky fixed for me today so I'll be cracking onto that very shortly, the kiddy cardigan thing that may run out of yarn before completion, the olympic crochet blanket thats lost its corners and the eternal donegal blanket that is being taken to Donegal in July and worked on.
I'm hoping that in the next fortnight (before SOS10) starts I will finish at least 2 of the above. Yeah, back to the overachieving lark again, lol.

I'm getting geared up for SOS10 which starts in 15 days. I'm going to attempt 4pairs which will be the start of my christmas knitting with a pair thrown in for me. Just have to get this current pair finished first, lol.
