Goodies from a blog friend:) 1st Solid sock finished
We didn't come home empty handed either:)
3 skeins of yarn for me to dye
A basket to keep my yarn in as I knit, avoids it travelling round the room like it normally does. Made by Ursula.
A skein of Laal Bear hand dyed yarn, just look at those colours.
A wee selection of other yarns for me to play with:) Just look at all this treasure. I'm going to add the eyelash yarns in with mohair for shawls. The pumpkin colour and the moss green will also be shawls I think.
Thank you so much Ursula and Phil for a great day and some lovely yarns.
Then we come to this. This is my first sock for the Solid sock KAL on Ravelry. Each month there is a different colour suggestion and it has to be solid or shaded yarn no variegation. I'm going to try and dye each subsequent month's yarn but this first one I purchased as I wasn't sure how much time I'd have and how well I'd be to dye some. Oh and then there is the small matter of the current weather we are having, think rain, rain and more rain and you wouldn't be far off.
This yarn is from Ripples Crafts and the colour is Irn Bru after the Scottish drink from Barrs. It is a great yarn to knit with, very soft and a good twist on it.
Oh and notice the proper eye of peacock heel I've done. My very first.
Mr Mog is creating a shed/lean to where the greenhouse stood. That hasn't been a great success this year and as he needs space to create we have decided to turn it into a lean to. This way he cans tore stuff in there leaving the shed a little emptier to allow him to get in and work. He is totally enjoying himself and although he is shattered it is a good feeling when he knows he has done something to make him that way and it isn't just the treatment.
