finished socks,shawl and socks on needles, destash knitting needles

Finished Mr Mog's socks in the rainbow yarn from Maylin:) Yarn is gorgeous to knit with and very soft on the hands. Thank you Maylin:)

Started another pair in socks that rock jewel of the nile . Looking ok but a confession, I don't particularily like STR, too harsh on the hands for me.
and started a shawl in the fire mohair from Jane
loving these:)

Destashing lots of needles , straights, dpns and circs making space. Anyone interested message me for more details, I have way more than I'll ever use let alone if (when) I decide to purchase the knitpicks so time to let some go. Mr Mog had a clear out of the house a little for me today getting rid of stuff we don't use and sorting out stuff we do. Does everyone else find things just get messed up if you aren't careful?
Gorgeous day here today but I'm in absolute agony. Woke up this morning barely able to turn or move my neck. Pills not much use. I was fine when I woke earlier for loo visit so whether I slept wrong or what I don't know. It hurts breathing in and moving much.
Mr Mog busy putting new plants in garden that we brought back from Wales and that we have just picked up at garden centre. Trying to make front hedging harder to get through. Folks tend to cut across garden rather than use path and it pees me off. Hopefully this will stop some of it.

I'm interested in your destash needles if you are willing to mail to Finland. Your sheep needle case is so cute! I hope your neck is better.

Sorry to hear you are suffering - do you think the weather affects your pain levels? I have recently started taking Sulphur tablets which seem to help.
Love Mr Mog's rainbow socks! Better make him hitch his trews up high so they show!!!

Sorry to hear you're poorly Amber - I do hope you get better soon and I'm sending positive mental vibes in your direction! Love the rainbow socks too! Re the blue hands, if Mum hand remembered to give me some gloves I'd have been OK - for future reference food bags are not a good sustitute! LOL!

Berberis in that hedge out front should work fabulously to prevent lazy people short-cutting. Nice and sharp and many people are allergic to it.

Hope you're feeling better.

Hope your neck is well soon. You've become quite a sock knitter! Nice socks the rainbows and I'm not that keen on str too...:-)

I am just starting to catch up on blogs again. I hope that you are feeling better by now and back to your usual knitting strength.
I am getting back slowly. It's so hard to find other things to do when you are, and want to be, a knitter and health gets in the way of the urges.
