It's another ferociously hot day here in the UK and very humid again, so it's a day for enjoying the sunshine from the coolness of the inside of our house. The older part of the house has walls that are about two foot thick, and made of stone, so it really does keep the heat out, and in during the winter. At the moment I'm sitting in my bedroom which has windows on both sides of the room, so there's a cross draft as well, so it's reasonably bearable. I've just been outside to hang out the washing; the heat should dry it quickly, but the humidity will probably mean that it will take all day.
So, as you can imagine, I wore the socks purely for the photograph and then whipped them off again quickly. It's the first time I've knitted with four needles, so as I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself. I'm slightly mystified why the pattern looks so different on each sock, but there you go. They've even turned out much the same size! I need to learn a different way of casting on as the tops are a little snug, but I shall certainly have another go soon.
