I'm not entirely convinced I've got the pattern right (my 'make 1' stitches don't make the shape they do in the picture in the book!) but I've settled into a rhythm now and the waves are turning out just fine, so I'm going to leave it as it is.
I actually knitted a tension square for the first time ever for this project. I bought double knitting wool when the pattern called for something else, and I have no idea what size my needles are, so it seemed sensible. I suppose I could have just given the socks to someone with bigger or smaller feet if they didn't fit, but I selfishly wanted them all for myself.
It's a good job I did the tension square - it should have been four inches and ended up measuring six. So I'm knitting the largest children's size and hoping it works out.
We also took a car full of garden waste to the tip yesterday, so I might pop to the garden centre later for plants to brighten the place up and make it look nice to sell.
And I spent a glorious half hour swimming in an almost empty pool, which was so much fun I might go back and do it again tomorrow (and stay a bit longer, and go in the sauna too). When I came out there were two ducks sitting on the roof of the building opposite.
And on that note, I'm off out in the sunshine myself for a bike ride. Not sure you'd catch a duck on a bike, but I bet it would have a go if its feet could reach the pedals.
