Socks!

one pair of me made socks. Done in drops big fable. Which is nice cos it’s designed for socks but bulkier around Aran weight so they knit up much quicker

Cheaply made circular needles

Posted By on February 17, 2015

Im getting mighty fed up with this. As you may recall i had a cable snap not long into my double knit blanket. Another needle snapped barely a coupke of rows into a sock.

This was not a cheap needle.

Yarn porn

Posted By on January 5, 2015

Now many of us have heard the phrase food porn as watching cooking shows never fails to make you think I could just eat that.

Well. Part of me is proud the other half severely disappointed, as you see, I got one of those scraps bags from world of wool. It was free if you spent 50 quid or something. And in it was this. Sadly this was all there was.

What may not show well on the photo is the gold sparkles. So I have no idea what fibre etc this is but it is super pretty and I managed to ply it up looser than my usual efforts so it really does look so so nice.

Happy new years and resolutions

Posted By on January 1, 2015

I dont really do resolutions, but i do like to think of things I will try and do more or less of to make me and the year better.

Firstly this year I am determined not to buy any much yarn this year.

Second, I want to make a pair of socks out of sock yarn, a pair, not the singles I seem to make out of random yarns. So, to set this in motion. I started some so that it can nag me

Happy christmas

Entrelac crochet is now all the rage?

Posted By on December 20, 2014

So, its been a long while since i posted. Im sorry, just havent done much crafting recently. Time has just slipped by.

One thing I have noticed is that the everyone seems to be doing entrelac now, yet when i did it it was all quiet.

So, one of my first entrelacs from August 2012, this was the simple in the round method, but still, seems I was about two years ahead of everyone else!
