FO: Hither & Thither Socks

I suddenly realised the other day that I hadn't done an FO post for my socks. They got completed a day or two after the last round up post, and I took a few pictures, but not many, and then evidently completely forgot to write them up. Ah well. The regular round up will be… Continue reading FO: Hither & Thither Socks

FO: Curses Socks

Another finished pair of socks! But you'll know if you've been keeping up with the round up posts lately that I've had several WIP pairs of socks, so it's about time some of them got paired off, and this month it was the turn of the first of two test knits that I have done… Continue reading FO: Curses Socks

Monthly round up – April

Hi, and happy May! How have you been? Its been a good month - the sun has started showing up at long last, and I've had some decent crafting time, so I got an FO in the form of my Rainbow Stripy Socks. What's been going on? Its been a good month here in Yorkshire… Continue reading Monthly round up – April

FO: Rainbow stripy socks

Another FO! I'm on a roll at the moment... These ones have been a loooong time coming though - I started them back in December as some cheerfully coloured socks to see me through the winter, and normally I would have them knocked out in a few weeks, but a couple of test knits have… Continue reading FO: Rainbow stripy socks

Monthly round up – March

Hello! How have you been? Hope you've had a good month since my last round up. I've had an eventful few weeks, both from a crafting point of view and life in general. About which, more in a bit! Since my last round up, miraculously I've managed to post two blogs - one rounding up… Continue reading Monthly round up – March

Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018

Well look at this, I'm actually writing a blog post when I said I would. Miracles will never cease! So, Edinburgh Yarn Festival happened. Boy did it happen. And I think we're all suffering the post-EYF blues now (what? It's a thing, trust me), so I'm reliving in the hope it reminds me of the… Continue reading Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018

Monthly round up – January & February

It happened again. I even had a reminder set on my calendar for 1st Feb to do the January round up, and I've been ignoring it for almost a month, so I may as well do two together. Whatever. I have one small FO this month, although as you'll see I have another one pretty… Continue reading Monthly round up – January & February

Monthly round up – November & December, plus a few FOs

Yes, I know. What can I say? It's been Christmas, and I'm a crafter and a musician, which automatically means that I'm ridiculously busy, and it takes me a week of sleeping after it's all over to recover before I can even contemplate any kind of brain activity. I went back to work today after… Continue reading Monthly round up – November & December, plus a few FOs

FO: Tour De Sock 2017 Stage Four – Mosaic Marbles

I got these finished just after I had published my last monthly round up post, but it's taken a few days to get some half decent pictures of them (thanks, Autumn in Yorkshire!) and get them written up. These are the Tour De Sock Stage Four pattern, Mosaic Marbles by Kirsten Hall, knitted from West… Continue reading FO: Tour De Sock 2017 Stage Four – Mosaic Marbles

Yarndale, and monthly round up – September

I started writing this a week ago, got distracted, and only just got back to finish the Yarndale section now. I know, I know. So some of the WIPs have moved on a bit, but I figured I'd leave them for next time. I know, I know, I said I'd do a Yarndale post, and… Continue reading Yarndale, and monthly round up – September

FO: Tour De Sock Stage Three – Indecisions

Hurray, I finished something!! And about flipping time too! These are the Tour De Sock Stage Three pattern, Indecisions by Adrienne Fong. The yarn is Owl About Yarn Cuddly Owl Sock in colourway Fuchsia Obsidian, which fell into my cart when I was getting something else - I saw it and it had to come… Continue reading FO: Tour De Sock Stage Three – Indecisions

Monthly round up – August

I'm a bit more on time this month than last month! Hurray! Mind you, I still haven't had any FOs in that time... Ugh. Anyway, more of that in a minute. So how have you been? Autumn seems to be creeping in on us - the minute it turned to September it feels as though… Continue reading Monthly round up – August
