Week 22

Here’s the piccie!

Week 22

Not really that busy this week.

On Tuesday, I went to the dentist and had my crown replaced – I broke a tooth when I was a child and had a crown fitted. The crown served me well for years, but recently (as […]

This week….and last week too!

Tut, not very good at this weekly blogging thing, am I?

Anyway, week 20:

Week 20

On Monday, I went to Eastleigh with Alex to see Star Trek Into Darkness.

If you haven’t yet seen this; GO!!!

It is a fab film, they did a really good job of keeping […]

Oops, I got a bit behind!!

I forgot to post Week 5:

Week 5

Not loads going on, mostly bills. Unfortunately, I didn’t make the spin and natter at Jumble Jelly on Saturday; I just couldn’t afford all the petrol (it’s about 120 miles round trip!)

We popped over to the Island on Wednesday […]

But it’s a good ache!

I walked down into Romsey today. Kyle had informed me that he wanted Assassin’s Creed: Forsaken for Christmas, so I went to WHSmith to buy it, even though it cost me £2 more than it would’ve done if I’d bought it online tut.

I also posted off a parcel to SulkyCat […]

Pair 18

Into The Groove

I was recently asked to test knit a pair of socks and I finished them yesterday.

The pattern is called ‘Into The Groove’ and was written by Knittingtastic on twitter.

The yarn is ‘Hollowgast’ in Flockly by The Skein Queen.

A few FO’s

I have been woefully negligent about updating my blog lately and I have a few finished bits to show you.

Gale Socks

Here are Gale Socks – a nice knit, but I had to do a lot of fudging to make the damn things fit as the cables made them […]

Struggling

I must admit, I’m starting to struggle with this sock challenge.

Oh, don’t get me wrong! I am still loving socks and want to knit the 300+ in my queue, but I miss spinning…..and knitting lace shawls…….and big chunky sweaters!

I don’t have time to do ANY of these; […]

Pair 13

I knew these socks were going to be quick to make, especially when I decided to use a slightly thicker sock yarn to make them out of!

Farnkrautsocken

The pattern and the yarn went together a lot better than I initially thought it would and I think they look great!

[…]

Pair 12

I finished these a couple of days ago, but lack of enthusiasm about them meant I was blasé about posting about them!

Tara

There’s nothing wrong with them (exceept for being tight over the instep), it’s a nice pattern. The yarn is lovely too – I just don’t think they’re a good combination; the […]

Pair 11

Effervesce

Finished pair 11 last night, I liked these they were quick to knit which was a good thing as I didn’t think to try them on until I was almost down to the heel.

They’d knit up rather tight so I had to undo the lot and restart.
