Can you believe how fast this month has gone by? This was a super busy month for me, I’ve actually been knitting like a madwoman! Can you believe I’ve finished 2 and half pairs of socks? Yes! I have finished my beautiful Aquagirl socks (actually not mine, they are Tracy’s!) From left to right, the patterns I used are Sock it to me! by Patons, Mercury socks by Kim Drotar and Glynis by Cookie A.
I’ve also been crocheting fingerless gloves (Charmed gauntlets by Nerdish Delights) and a shawl (Blurre by Addydae Designs) to keep me warm.
And of course I’ve been doing some cross stitching as well, albeit not as much as I would have wanted (it’s actually quite hard to stitch with cold fingers). I’ve only just finished the May SAL from Helene et Mahelia, in June, shame on me!
One of my main goals for July will be to catch up on my SAL and to decorate my project bag, and because I like multitasking, I’m actually going to stitch the SAL on my bag! Talk about genius! I also have plans to finish a beautiful crochet top from Oceans Originals, I have been delayed slightly as I ran out of yarn (I’m sorry Kelley I’m getting on to that asap!) And of course, I can see more socks in my future, now that I’ve started there is no stopping me!!
I wish you all a super productive month! I hope it’s productive for me too 😊
Hello wonderful readers!
I’m super happy today, because I’ve finished my first sock! I probably should have started with an easier pattern for my first pair, but I just fell in love with the details. The pattern is from the book “Sock Innovation” and, like the title says, it is the Glynis design.
It’s also getting quite cool here after the time torrential rains from last week, so I’m quite pleased with how warm this sock is! Now, to knit the second one!
TGIF! I hope you guys had a great week, mine was positively exhausting!
You may remember that I got some lovely yarn from Amsterdam in July and that my wonderful husband got me a really cool book to knit socks for my birthday.
So I have finally decided to give it a go and I’ve found it quite fun so far.
The hardest part was to get the round knitting going on my circular needles. I have knitted in the round before but only on double pointed needles, so this was a bit of a challenge at first.
So far I’ve done the cuff for sock #1 and 2 rounds of the leg pattern (out of 9 repeats), so I still have a fair bit to go 🙂
My goal is to finish at least one sock before the end of the month, we will see how I go with that!
Have a great weekend
