My focus has been on weaving and on renovating my home loom. I was going to tell you about that, but really everything is half way done and I realised I've finished two knitting projects that I have barely written about. The reason for my comparative silence is that they are simple projects I've been taking out with me and knitting with friends and just chugging happily away on. No fuss, no drama:
  
The first one is Hermione's Everyday Socks.  I knit these for my father, he's going back into hospital for a stomach operation at the end of the month. There is not much I can do to help him, but I can make him more socks.
 
The second is a hat for Shoni. Remember the huge hat I made?  Well, sometime last week I put my sock aside and knit a hat that is significantly smaller for Shoni. I thought I was seeing him on the weekend, so I wanted to get it done. I really like the way it turned out. I'm not quite sure when I'm going to give it to him - I think I'll be seeing him the week after next. I hope to get some photos with him wearing it, until then, thanks to Leon for modelling both hat and socks for me.
