Now all the dress up days and various non important crafty things are out of the way.
Firstly, do you remember that yarn I dyed with Kool-Aid, silly red and blue stuff? As I’m now feeling a bit more confident about knitting socks, I had a go with this wool.
It doesn’t look too bad knitted up….does it?
(the cream yarn is natural Alpaca from Jaeger)
My copy of “No Sheep for you” has finally arrived, I though I’d been waiting ages but it was actually only 1 1/2 weeks!
I’m knitting “Intoxicating” which looks like great fun.
In these colours, all from my stash.
The peach/pink colour is Patons “Holiday” 50% Cotton, 50% Acrylic.
The cream is unlabelled, it’s definitely cotton!
The red (also unlabelled) is a cotton/acrylic blend.
So the main colour will be in the pink and alternating cream and red squares.
(I’m still knitting Big J slowly – I’m halfway up the body now, which is motivation enough to keep me going for a while longer!)
