First Patronus sock is finished

Here is the rare Patronus, lurking in the exotic greenery of its native habitat...

Currently, there is only one of this endangered species, but maybe...just maybe...there will soon be a mate to join it...




Below, one sees it languishing on a branch, looking harmless, but in reality it is waiting to pounce...





It successfully ambushed its prey and has consumed a meal - the foot of a nearby homo sapiens. It fits perfectly. A second Patronus sock is on the needles; the first inch of ribbing is done.

Hi Katherine...it's nice to get to "know" you. Thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog. It's always good to hear from someone new. You are a lucky girl to live in such a beautiful country! I haven't had time yet to read much of yours but so far it looks to me that you are a "doing" kind of girl and that's my kind of person. I only knit a little so anything you have knitted is clever in my books.
By the sound of it you have wonderful friends who know how to make your birthday special.
much happiness to you,
Angela.

What Nicola did you morph into David Attenborough when writing that post? I guess you've the accent for it. ;-) Sock looks lovely.

Looking good Nicola!! Now you see how easy cables are (but pretend they are very hard so everyone is even more impressed ;o)

The sock is brilliant, oh Queen of Knitting! Samantha is right, cables are very impressive. High on the knitting "wow" factor.
