Some socks, a thong and some knitting….

Can anyone guess what this is I’m making? I’m sure there’s a few of you knitters out there that have had a go at this conundrum! I am using some Rowan wool/cotton that I got in a bargain bucket in that shop in Devon, it is a joy to knit with and has a springy drape about it.

This Thong was made just as a bit of fun really and the most amazing thing is that my daughter Ali was knitting this same pattern at the same time I was and we hadn’t even conversed on the subject! I made them out of some Rowan Cotton Glace but I guess pure silk would have been better. I think these would just look good as a bedroom decoration really, I don’t think I would want to wear them! This is destined as a gift …..
I finished these socks on the way back from Devon on Tuesday, I am very proud of them. The stitches are so tiny, especially now I have washed them and the yarn has filled out. I used three strands of summer socks yarn that I got from Hong Kong, in the online description it says 80%wool and 20%acrylic, but I think the yarn is cotton, it didn’t behave at all like wool does when it is wet. These sock are destined for someone special, I’ll tell you who when I have given them to her.
