my 500th post today and in celebration I'm holding a little contest. goodies to be seen above for the winner.
1/ A 50gm skein of Lornas laces Shepherd sock approx 215 yards 80% superwash wool 20% nylon. Colour is Gold Hill.
2/ A 50gm skein of mohair boucle from the natural dye studio. Colour unknown as I've lost the label.
3/ pair of Addi 10mm needles with shiny tips.
4/ 4 stitch markers
What do you have to do? Very easy leave a comment on the blog with your favourite yarn recommendations.
Winner to be picked randomly by Mr Mog on Sunday.
On to other things now. I finished my rainbow sock last night and although I love the colours I don't like the regia sock yarn itself. It splits terribly which makes for slow knitting.
My firey socks BTW, 40 stitches on 2mm needles. can't remember how many rows except that heel was 20 stitches 20 rows, I basically just winged it and then winged the second while trying it against the other for size. Who'd have thought it hey? The moggie winging it on socks:)) Next pair of baby socks I'll try and write down what I do.
Mr Mog is now half way through his treatment and doing very well. I'm keeping him busy of course so no time to dwell on stuff.. He has finished the dolls house/garage for our grandsons birthday on Saturday and will no doubt be uploading pictures to his new blog shortly.
