More Ice Queen done! And a new sock

Peruviana is my January Sock of the Month. The yarn is superwash wool, alpaca and nylon - nice to work with and comes in a good range of slightly variegated colours. It, like Paddington Bear, comes from darkest Peru.

Lace and cables and a garter stitch short row heel.

Started (and finished) a black Ice Queen for a friend (who shall remain nameless for now- at least until I have a chance to give it to her) . Yarn is Madil Kid Seta and is I swear - in spite of doubters (Yarn Harlot would be one of them) - is the same yarn as the much more expensive Rowan Kid Silk Haze.

This beauty took just under 1 ball.

Door Cam shot (note the Weeping Nootka False Cypress on the left - envying Ice Queen)

A Bit 0' Detail:

And the lying on the beach shot (OK so you need a lot of imagination to turn that oak floor into sand but it is January and not too much beach up here in the frozen north)

Darning and blocking are all that are needed and this will be gifted to .....
