Sharing – But only if the internet connection lasts!!!

2015-04-18 09.42.17

There seems to be so much going on at the moment that I feel like I’ll fall behind if I don’t begin sharing some of it with you and there’s too much to put in a Facebook post, so please excuse the disjointed nature of this post. ย It’s probably a truer indication of how my mind works – on a good day that isย ๐Ÿ˜

(The balloon flower was gifted to me by one of my young students, Miriam, yesterday morning and it set the tone for a lovely day.

The sun was shining and I finally managed to get round to photographing these lovely blankets that Jackie Dunn whipped up for the Chernobyl Children’s Trust. ย Aren’t they just fab?

As are the scarf and 7 hats that she also made ๐Ÿ’•

Some of you might have already noticed that I’ve finished my 3rd pair of socks this week. ย I had literally been dragging my heels over knitting them because they’re not really my colours and was planning on using them as boot socks. ย However, I’m prepared to swallow my words and admit to rather liking them.

Just so you know, I’ve knitted them in Heart & Sole sock yarn from Sirdar in shade 107 (Hip Hop) with 2.5mm needles and they’re really comfy ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m on a total sock knitting binge and am actually making two separate pairs at the moment, one is a 6ply pair just to see what they’ll be like (I’ll be sure to let you know). ย The second pair are flying up, so much so that I’d reached the gusset part earlier today, but we were off to see Fast & Furious 7 and I needed knittingย ๐Ÿ˜• ย So I decided to risk it and try to work my decreases in the dark movie theatre, what’s the worse that could happen?

I’m dead chuffed with my cinema knitting. ย Not only did I manage to work my k2tog decreases neatly and without dropping a stitch.

2015-04-19 17.47.18I also completed my ssk’s too and 5 rows of the leg, despite being thoroughly engrossed in the antics of Dom, Brian, Letti, Hobbs and the rest of the team.

Happy Knitting!

  1. I need to pop down and get some of that wool it’s amazing!
    Do you mind if I ask what sick pattern you are using?

    • Hi Gemma, I use a basic sock pattern that I have here in the shop that I can give you. I usually make a 60 stitch sock for myself with a standard turned heel and a French toe, rather than a grafted one. When you’re in I’ll talk to you more about them ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Excellent thank you for the reply! I might try to drop in Friday morning โ˜บ๏ธ
