It's been a long time since I wrote about my knitting. Mostly because
it took me ages to finish my current project, the Oa Sweater (which is
currently blocking) but also because I finished a pair of socks without
writing about and I didn't knit as much.
Somehow it still feels uncompleted so here they are...
I knit quite a bit of these beautiful socks while I was away in Feldis / GR on a yoga retreat. It was a great activity in between yoga classes and hikes in all kinds of weather. I really like how they look and I might use that pattern again.
While we were there we also had time for a hike up to the still snow covered mountains. It was fun going back to winter and taking photos even though we almost got lost at one point.

This is already the third time I knit this pattern. When I was on winter holidays I promised the second little girl that I would also make her a hat.
Due to missing needles and then the whole Oa it took far longer than usual to finish it. Nevertheless at least it's finished now and I am sure she will still like it next winter ;-). It's a bit too small for me but for her smaller head it should be perfect.
