Why am I so easily diverted from what I should be doing? Procrastination has always been my middle name. With the 1940's weekend at Bantock House rapidly approaching, I should be finishing off a multitude of WW2 garments, most are just waiting to be pressed and sewn up. At least this childs pullover is finished. The yarn was a give away from Texere a while ago, very fine lambs wool which I used double. I couldn't get the right effect with locally bought modern yarns, and this seemed ancient enough.

Instead what have I been knitting? This..........

yes, it's Shelly Kang's Sock Yarn Blankie. The idea is to use up all those odds and ends left over from knitting socks. (But it is oh so tempting to buy yarn just for the blanket!) Any way this must go on the back burner for a while, although it does keep calling me. You have to have a bit of colour in your life.

The pullover looks great! And that blanket - very colourful. I haven't got anywhere near enough sock yarn oddments for my own yet, but what a great idea.
