Thus this blog was born - musings and photos and knitting and pretty much anything I can think of gets chewed on over here.
So thanks to you all for your patience, comments and reading my words.
There is a competition on the way but not just yet.......
SPOILER ALERT - *****Vanessa you are not allowed to read any further til after next weekend!!!!!!
So knitting wise I am going to have a personal sock club for 2010, I think I have said this already. There are two piles one for me and one for S.V. Can you guess which pile is for whom. I am planning on a pair every 6 weeks and I know the piles add up to more but I like choice and I am not good with have to knits.
Here are the first socks of 2010 personal sock club underway , and for Sock Victim- a regia cotton yarn perfect for summer
Knitabulous yarn is my weakness at the moment and the club at the moment is fab I am part way through my first sock
this is the second instalment of the yarn - a 50/50 wool silk blend just perfect for a scarf or shawl.....
like this on my first shawl for 2010 - an Aestlight for my S.I.L.'s birthday
Then there is the test swatch for Viften - or Fan for the Easter show in knit picks - I am loving it, the purl is a slip stitch on the wrong side. A few more rows and I will block this for measuring.
And some finished projects -Part of my large Xmas socks scheme - these were for Mum and here she is kindly modelling them for me - Rav details here Lacy Rib socks from Wendy Knits
Some 'not evil crochet' Toshiko scarf from Morris and Sons in their yarn - a fun crochet
