And if you're one of the new followers here wondering what "One a Day" is, you can see the details in this post, maybe you'd like to join in? I'll be popping over to Carole's blog to see the other OaD projects later, but now it's time for lunch... which looks remarkably like wooden sandwiches and plastic carrots (from Little Miss' Baker's Shop).
The lovely Tickety-boo (aka Gilly) - now my sock guru - was kind enough to get me started by recommending the book above as well as sending me this heel-turning tutorial which prepared me for what I expected to be the hardest bit. Once I had the pattern it all made complete sense and was much much easier than I expected. Sure, this is a simple pattern, but now I feel confident to make more intricate patterns and to try a different heel type - which is good as there is now a knitting request queue forming in my house.

♥review of Unravel 2011. I had just started knitting and went on a whim as it's not that far away in Farnham Maltings - it blew my mind! So many yarns, wonderful knits, buttons and notions galore. The great news is that the 2012 tickets are now for sale. If you can get there, it's well worth it. For me, it was much better than the Knitting and Stitching Show in Alexandra Palace - it's a yarny's dream. Tickets are booked and I can't wait!
For now, here are two of this week's FOs (as usual I'm linking in with Tami's FO Fridays). Firstly a little birthday pressie for D - not the greatest picture as it's actually BLACK! - I'll try for an action shot at the weekend as it's too dark now.
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend
