Colour isn't brilliant but of course the camera is in China with beloved eldest child.
Can you guess what it is now??
A pair of trousers. I know what you're thinking, honestly I've been there myself but for over six months now I have had this burning desire to knit a pair of trousers. I know it's utter madness and I am seriously in danger of looking like an inmate of the local home for lost souls and the deranged but I just think they will be the most comfortable things in the world to wear. I just adore wearing both my skirts and so surely the trousers will be the same with spades.
These are as I said a cotton and bamboo blend which has a beautiful silky sheen, so soft and hangs with just enough weight to add movement. Unlike socks which cause me double angst with second sock syndrome there is none of that with these, I have already cast on for leg number two and even have a second pair of trews on needles in a different blend.
There's a long long list, probably longer than Santa's good children list of other projects that are way more urgent but these are healing me in ways that only uncomplicated knitting can. I just need not to think about what I'm doing right now although I do worry that perhaps at the end of it I might not be able to think again.
OK back to the other leg. Watch this space for the first showing of the finished project. I promise I will share here before I wear them outside.
