I finally got to start my (Rav link) Elizabeth Montague socks from Kate Davies’ Bluestocking club today! So far the pattern is very well written. They socks are toe-up, which is my preference anyway. It starts with a cast-on I haven’t used before – the winding cast-on. It was very well explained in the pattern,… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Elizabeth Montague
Since I finished DH’s socks earlier this week, I’ve had just one project on the needles, which is almost unheard of. It’s the Bonbori wrap, which is consequently moving along pretty nicely. I’ll be starting my first Bluestock socks tomorrow, then probably the June Confident Knitting project on Tuesday, so Bonbori will go back to… Continue reading One WIP Weekend

This tray is marigolds and forget-me-nots for the flower bed next to the short walkway up to our front door. The marigolds even have buds starting already! And this is just a mess of other flowers for… Continue reading Agriculture Report

It is a great pattern and fun to knit 🙂 The pattern is by Janette Budge, and the yarn is Jamieson & Smith yarn – if anyone is curious I can… Continue reading FO Friday – Variance Hat
Stocked up on blue sock yarn and ready for the Bluestockings club to start tomorrow!
Turned the heels on DH’s socks! Now it’s just stockinette for a while and then a bit of ribbing, and done! I don’t know how much is going to get done on these this week, as I’ve decided to focus on my Fair Isle hat for the Confident Knitting club so I can get that… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
