Hello everyone. Where did September go?
I didn’t record any audio at Yarndale, as it was all a bit overwhelming to be honest. I really shouldn’t go to shows when I’m a bit tired and wired, as I buy way more stuff than I need or can process into anything else! It was lovely to meet up with fellow podcasters Jo from Shinybees and Aimee from Knit.Spin.Cake. For a full sharing of my goodies, please listen to Episode 12 of the Shinybees podcast.
In the near two months since I recorded last, I have finished just one sock, a test knit. Pathetic!
On the Needles and Hooks
During the second week of the holiday I cast on a pair of socks using the sock stripe yarn from The Knitting Goddess that I picked up at Fibre East. These are currently stalled not far from the cuff and susequently mislaid (eek!).
When I got back from holiday I decided to join in the Mystery Sock-A-Long on the APlayfulDay podcast group, but haven’t got far on those because I can’t seem to pick up the lace pattern easily (limited details here). These are in the same project bag as the stripey socks, ergo they too are missing. Then at the end of August I cast on a Chevron Pullover in Noro Kureyon as part of the Stitched Together podcast’s Craft-Library-a-long. Completed the sleeves within a fortnight but have now slowed down due to limited bandwidth.
On the coach back form Yarndale last week I started crocheting an Iris scarf in NDS Dazzle HT as part of a kit I bought but this photo was taken once it crashed to a halt over the pale greeny-blue top left. This has now been removed!
Last night I also picked up the Dorothy in Sublime merino DK that I bought with my prize winnings form Thame Show.
