Finished projects and new/old ones

I finished my socks this weekend. They are the lovely, free Jane's Hedgerow Socks pattern knit in Madeline Tosh sock, the Tomato colorway. They are the first pair of socks I have actually finished in a long time and I am enjoying them so much, I can't wait to knit more socks.

I think they go nicely with some hand-me-down clogs from a friend (thanks Michelle!)  

And I am still enjoying my window star, but from the outside,  

It is warm and sunny today and I set up my knitting and writing spot on our front porch for the first time this year. Hooray for warmer temps.

I am working on finishing up a new design, it will be a free knitting pattern and I hope to put it up for grabs this week. Here's a photo of the first draft, a big hint!
