1. Here it is all nice and dry…super squishy

     
  2. Ready for Halloween knitting! I’ve treated myself to a few things this month and now I need to reign in the spending again. Back to being frugal and enjoying the things I have!

     
  3. Been a while since I tackled tencel.

     
  4. Plied

     
  5. Just finished spinning these singles, the fibre is Southdown and the colourway is Seaglass

     
  6. My mum made this knitting project bag today out of fabric we chose together, and I love it! It’s bright pink on the inside!

    I am not a great sewer, although I hope to get better when I have time to practice. I found the tutorial HERE so this is what she used. Being a perfectionist the serging for the lining wasn’t to her taste, so she is making a binding to cover it!

     
  7. First skein of the corriedale x Icelandic fleece, needs to have a bath still.

     
  8. I find this immensely satisfying!

     
  9. Finally knitting a pair of Broken Seed Stitch socks…these have been in my queue for years!

     
  10. At my mums house, started spinning a bit of the corriedale x Icelandic fleece, absolutely lovely!

     
  11. Decided to ply it…166.5m

    This will be a gift for my mum

     
  12. My yarns for embarking on my first colourwork socks.

    The white is Opal, and the hot colours is Fortissima Mexico which I have used before and was very happy with. They have the same fibre content and almost exactly the same yardage.

    I haven’t quite decided on a pattern, I want something not too brain frying, but impressive!

     
  13. These are some very fragile singles that broke several times when winding onto the niddy noddy which is a shame, beautifully soft though…debating plying it with some thread for stability.

     
  14. Look at that line up of fibres!!

     
  15. One pair of finished Hermione’s Everyday socks with my first Fleegle Heel which fits like a dream!


    The yarn is from Countess Ablaze on her Viscount of Spark base, the colour is Positioned Himself to be Nero’s Favourite.

    You can find my project on Ravelry HERE.

    Edit to add… 12 pairs now completed this year! Operation Sock Drawer is well and truly in progress!
