I don't know where the days are going at the moment! Every time I look up it is Thursday or Friday!
The early part of the week just seems to disappear into a big jumble of stuff that I find hard to recall, all
my well laid plans and things I want to cross off my to-do list seem to get pushed to the back of the week and I actually have very little to show for how I spend my day.
I think I spend a lot of time day dreaming. Imagining how things could look, or things I could make, or things I could plant, or just procrastinating. Think I will do something about all this dreaming, not sure what though!!
Anyhoo, I have managed to finish one sock! Half way there! Yay! It wasn't as hard to negotiate the heel and shaping as I was anticipating, so that was a good thing. I just followed the pattern to the letter.
I am using the sock pattern from 'The gentle art of knitting' by Jane Brocket, such a great book!
Must keep soldiering on to the second one and not say I am finished till I have a pair of socks.
I quite like the way the pattern has come out with this wool. I think it is that German sock wool brand Opal, they do lovely things with self striping yarn.
..........also been making some little hats for the cooler weather, the crochet hook is so much quicker than the needles! These are for babies and I have made them in lovely soft merino so they are nice and cosy for those cute little bald heads. I got on a bit of a roll with these, so many lovely stripey combos to make up! I like this classic shape too, I think it really suits simple striping.
Think these will go towards my on the never- never market stall, slowly collecting some things to sell. Maybe some in my little shop too, I have some more combos to try out yet!!
What have you been up to lately?
See you later!
