Today the sock got an outing. I decided to take my knitting to work and if it was sunny, sit in Civic Square and do a few rows at lunchtime. The sun moved pretty quickly though and there was a cold breeze so I was soon shivering in the shadows and it wasn't as idyllic as I'd hoped. I'm making progress on the sock though, and in the bright light you can really see the wide rib pattern which is exciting (I know I said I wasn't going to take photos of the sock every 5 minutes but clearly that idea didn't last very long).
Then after work I met Penny for a drink and it turns out we have matching bags! Her golden/mustard coloured one is newer and less stuffed full of crap than my blue one, but both are pretty cute.
