I hope you all had a lovely Summer (or Winter if you're on the other side of the world to me!), seems like such a long time ago now. We enjoyed two weeks in North Wales, staying in a proper house rather than a tent. Soo much nicer when it rains lol.
Now it's November, the weather here as turned cold and autumnal and I've been enjoying picking up my needles again.
I've finished 3 pairs of socks since I last blogged, two man sized vanilla ones and a pair for me which I'll show you in a bit. The man-size ones haven't been photographed yet, the ones for Mr Soaring Sheep have been well loved, keeping his feet warm and need a quick wash. The other pair went to my Dad for his birthday and I completely forgot to take photos of them, what a bad blogger!
These are my finished socks though, terrible light I'm afraid. I need to find some better photography spots!
This pretty pattern is by Louise Tilbrook and is called "Bleaberry Tarn". I love how the twisted stitches really make the cable pop. I used a fish lips kiss heel 'cos I like it lol.
The yarn is from Stranded Dyeworks, I love Amy's use of colour and I'm lusting after most of the colourways in her shop! On a bit of a yarn diet at the moment though so will resist a while longer. This colourway is called "Ocean Rainbow"
So pretty :-)
I'm sort of trying to clear my needles at the moment. I've got a cabled cardigan for my eldest daughter that I haven't touched in weeks so instead of working on it I've been knitting more socks instead! I've promised once I've finished this pair I'll get back to the cardigan, especially now it's getting cooler and my daughter insists upon growing out of her other sweaters!
As you can see there isn't much more to go, maybe around 30 rows plus 20 for the cuff? Always good to have a new pair of socks. The yarn is called "Berry Splash" and is by Devon Sun Yarns
And last but not least, all this sock knitting means I have leftovers to go into my scrappy blanket. It's getting to be a nice size now, I'll be very cosy knitting this over the Winter lol.
Hopefully I'll be back soon with some new projects to share rather than disappearing off again! Thanks for visiting my blog and have a look on Keep Calm Craft On and Yarn Along for more crafty posts :-)
