Stash and Moebius

Quick report as socks to finish and Chinese to order!

Just arrived back the class was brilliant especially as there were only 2 of us. Nic is a brilliant teacher and Stash is sooooooooooo Dangerous.

Needless to say Koigu, Malabrigo and Fleece Artist were involved. Pictures tomorrow.

Thank you Nic.


Lucky, Lucky, Lucky.

A touch of Aran, Float.

Some Luscious Lace, Murmur.

Slight Problem

Can I introduce you to my latest challenge, knitted in Colinette Jitterbug colour Castagna. The pattern is Cafe Curtains which has proved fast to knit, uses less yarn than others AND has taught me how to knit short row heels and toes.

Do you get the feeling somethings not quite right?

I loved the colour until, on the second sock, this appeared.

I trust you can see the huge black/green lump.

What to do?
Its 27th March
These are obviously part of my March quota.
The pool will be hidden by shoes/boots.

Carry on and ignore it, thats what I am going to do.

Hello world!

Welcome to This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!

Sundara Yarn

Don’t you just love the colour of this, well maybe not for those who don’t like pink!

I have had my eye on this ladys yarn for sometime but they sell out quick. I jumped at the chance when this one was issued to celebrate the first birthday. Should have it sometime in April.

Ebay and Replacements

Managed to clear a few unwanted items on Ebay and found a few more to try this week, Can’t bring myself to sell any Posh Yarn though. Its amazing how you collect things that aren’t really what you want or how your tastes change.

Now for a small stash replacement exercise which is much more my taste.

Lornas Laces Shepherd Sport in Black Purl , so soft and a lovely colour = Ella for me. Brittany Birch Crochet hook for this years education. Huge Addi Circular needle for the Moebius class.
AND this just hopped into my shopping cart, got to make the most of postage. Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock in Lakeview.

So many patterns

I love this Argosy Wrap. Have knit one Argosy scarf and am starting another this weekend.

I think before I splash out on the yarn for this I will try and sneak a visit to Coldspring Mill to see if they have any Noro Bargains. Do you think my husband will notice a slight detour, possibly not if Bettys in Ilkley or Harry Ramsdens in Guiseley (The original with chandeliers-unless theyve remodelled it since I was last there) are used as bribes.
