Unwittingly I must have boarded the slow train when I cast on these Railway Children-inspired socks as they took me an age to make - nothing to do with Kay Jones' clear pattern or Skein Queen's beautiful blue wool, simply my own lack of steam. Glad to have drawn into the station at last!
Three Chimneys Socks, inspired by the Waterbury family's Yorkshire home in E. Nesbit's novel.
Skein Queen 'Crush' (merino/nylon) in Soft Cornflower.
I couldn't mention a slow train without posting this much-loved, poignant Flanders & Swann song.
