Here’s a quick update on my crafty goings on from last week.
First my mother bought some stunning hand painted sock wool. It came in skeins so I spent a good half hour balling it with the help of T.
I now have a lot of socks to be making. I do plan on doing a post on all the socks that I have knitted so far but here’s the list of future socks that I am making; in order. Socks for me (half done), socks for T, socks for my grandmother, 2 pairs of socks for my mother, socks for me again. I already have all the sock wool enticing me to carry on. In fact it is so enticing I have totally abandoned my blanket that you can see pictured below. I even took that blanket on Honeymoon with my to work on. Crocheters gonna crochet!
I’ll do a post on that blanket too sometime when it is eventually finished. It is done using a random pattern that T generated for me.
Then there is the sock that I am working on for me, here you can see Salty and I cuddled together working on the sock. It is the same wool as I used for my mother-in-law’s socks because I just loved the colour so much.
Then the other day dear Salty decided to get involved. Usually she is only interested in my actual wool. Acrylic yarn doesn’t seem to interested her as much. However balls of yarn that roll clearly are fun to play with. She didn’t just tap it around, from what I found she seems to have picked it up and run around with it which leads me to believe that the fun was in annoying me not in the actual ball. 😛
Finally I had an urgent order for a scarf for father’s day, I received the order on Saturday night at 11…. and I managed to have it done by 2pm on Sunday, and I even still cleaned the kitchen first and did some grocery shopping in that time too. I think it took me between 3 and 4 hours. I am pretty impressed with myself because although it may take me that amount of time usually I don’t usually work that hard and fast for that long. Usually I pace myself and do other things as well otherwise I risk getting a stiff back / shoulder.
Well that’s it for last week.
