Did I Mention I Love To Knit?…


Vintage Sock Knitalong Done at last! Yes, I actually did complete these out of guilt – they were so close to finished, I figured “Just Do It”. I used Fearless Fibers sock yarn again. The colour varigations are really complex but still subtle enough to use in the really intricate Nancy Bush patterns – I love it! These are my first socks with Knitpicks new(ish) dpns and they are wonderful! They’ve sized them in metric – thank you! and they are slick and light. I’ve already ordered more…

Then it was on to the good stuff…

Sunshine Tank & KB Design

Chevron Scarf & Gansey
My “Sunshine Tank” is just past the second set of decreases, there is a little bit of increasing in stockingette and then the lace bodice – hopefully I’ll be on to that by this evening. I’m playing with my beautiful Merlin The Cat handspun in a new KB Design sock. I am so in love with this yarn! The pattern is OK too :)! My Scout Swag / Fleece Artist Chevron Scarf (Last Minute Knitted Gifts) is my new commute project and I’ve managed about 30cm in the last 2 days. Poor Gansey is a bit neglected, but I am OK with that, truly.

I have been feeling the itch to try my hand at what was my favourite craft when I was a teen, wait for it…. Yup! My name is Karin and I crochet. Not in a very long time, but I came across a crochet KAL for the “Pseudo Kimono” and I was a smitten kitten.

Your Fashionable MamaLook Away, Look Away!!
Yes, it’s a “not your Mama…” book – don’t scoff – I am the Mama, and there are some cute, useful and wearable items in here. You may scoff at my practice yarn – I skulked over to the craft section at Zeller’s on my lunch break and picked up something to play with until I get my gauge back. Yes, I am most definitely a yarn snob and only a little ashamed :)…

I was blessed by the yarn faeries this week (aka my postie). It seemed like all my August kits arrived at once and an extra-special packet from Pippi Kneesocks too.

This was my contribution to the “Kick Ass Best Friends” group on Flickr (thanks Scout). Me and my BFF Sue. We met when we were 8 & 9 – and this is us at my wedding – I’m the one in the hat :)! I’ll try and post a “Now” picture soon – we haven’t changed a bit, ha-ha!

Aw-w-w-w...
