Winter over soon I hope

We just had a little snow but now it has stopped. I wish spring was around the corner but I don't think so, unfortunately. As I have told I have been knitting some socks this winter and I have been asked if I would show them somehow, so here is a picture.I got carried away because of these new yarns where the colour changes and makes some sort of patterns. On 3 of them I combined with a solid colour simply because I think the patterns would look strange on the heal of the sock - that is just the way I am, lol. And it is probably also because that is the way my mother used to do it too.
The purple-pink one is partially a yarn with bamboo and the first time I have uesd that, it was very nice to knit with.
In a little while I want to try get back to do some tatting I just got my Guild magazine today and there are a couple of smaller things in it that I might give a try and see if it works at last. So I hope in the near future to have some tatting again here at my blog.

Hi Susanne,
Guess what...I've been knitting, nothing as fancy as you though. I've knitted to rolled brim hats, a scarf, a neck warmer and working on a piece with seed stitch (not sure what's it going to be yet). All I have knitted with so far is the very bulky yarns, plan on trying bulky or worsted weight soon though. Take care. Love your socks!!!! :O)
