A not so quick Toddy

Finished, after a little bit of wrangling with the fit.

As I have mentioned many times I am a tight knitter so after 2 false starts with these I finally accepted that 3mm needles were the only option. Wasn’t too keen because this won’t make these the hardest wearing socks, but you know how many pairs I have in stock so that shouldn’t be a problem here.

Pattern: Marlene by Cookie A

Yarn: The Yarn Yard Toddy, if you haven’t tried it yet do. I see this as an addiction.

Colour: Limes, delicious.


  Excuse the photo, we are in slight disarray at the moment this was the cleanest surface.

Next sock project.

Socktopus Sock Club

Yarn: Toddy

There’s a trend developing here.


 A Little Night Music was brilliant, especially with the sound of the Underground in the background. We managed to make an earlier train home and had a lovely day on the Island on Saturday.

Roll on August.

Just dropping by to show you my latest spinning for the Tour de Fleece.

Yarn Yarn Merino Silk (Fibre Club)

Colour: I want to call it “Voodoo”!

I managed to relieve a fellow Raveller of this, can’t wait to join the Fibre club myself.

 Another busy start to the weekend, here tomorrow night then out to lunch on Saturday. We may get a few hours sleep.

Himself is working Sunday so I think I’ll be spinning, that’s the bonus of decorating. Not worth cleaning!

Enjoy your weekend.

P.S. I have a few socks to show you.

Picasa Collages!



There are peas in pods in our Veg box, or rather there were. Yummy.

Enjoy your weekend.

Auntie Wainwrights? (Last of the Summer Wine)

I’m still here but we are currently living in one room due to decorating. So it looks a little like Aunty Wainwrights and means I have had to put things out of danger. Things like spinning wheels, not very useful when you have signed up for the Tour de Fleece!

Here’s a taster photo of whats been going on recently.
