Do you think the Green flowers a bit bright?!

Busy doing nothing

I sometimes wonder where the time goes!

Cookie was lovely, my mind is still reeling.

You can see pictures here and here.

Cookie A

On Saturday I am venturing to deepest darkest Chelsea for a Workshop at Socktopus. This isn’t just any workshop its a Sock Design Workshop with Cookie A.

So in readiness I have been digging out cupboards, bookcases and drawers.

Came up with 2 stitch guides, neither of which have inspired me! One appears to have every stitch pattern in that I have already knit in a sock and the other just doesn’t do anything for me, doomed.

Managed to narrow my yarn choice down to 6, we only have 3 hours knitting!

Knit a practice piece but after 1.5″ of twisted rib on 2.25mm lost quite alot of interest.

 However I have decided on a bag…….it might distract people from my lack of inspiration.

Very much looking forward to Saturday and producing something.

Red Toes Day

As for the last Comic Relief day I managed to get a pair of Red socks finished.

I have knit a few more examples from the same book but more on that another day.

Please, if you can and if you want to of course, visit here and tip a few pence into the pot.

 You could win a FAB blanket with noses on (clean ones of course!).

I was eyeing up the Cherry Bakewell cake but have a feeling thats not in the Raffle, shame.

Diet goes on.

Have a Red day and a Happy relaxing weekend.

Its got to be worth a £ or two.

Don’t you just love those noses.
