Ta Dah! Neon Beach Socks

The Neon Beach Socks are finished! I managed to knit up the toe in my lunch break at work on Thursday and they’ve now been washed, blocked and are ready to wear…   Yarn: Regia Fluormania in ‘Neon Beach’ (N.B – I only have one ball of this yarn range left now but don’t worry, it’s…

WIP Wednesday: Coming Along

Why is it that things never go to plan? I fully intended to have read at least two books since last week. But here we are, another week and  my reading is (still) behind and, once again, knitting progress has been quite considerable…

WIP Wednesday: The American Dream

Wow, three days into February already – I only noticed the date today! Somewhat predictably, I'm already quite behind in my annual reading challenge and have so far only read two books (I'm aiming for 75 this year). Although I'm really cross with myself over this, I can't exactly say I've been feeling myself. My Doctor today…

Chance of Snow Cardigan

I thought I'd surprise you all today and – shock, horror! – discuss knitting something other than socks.  This neglected beauty is set to be a cardigan, which I started way back in September. As that turned out to be such a, err, eventful month involving overseas travel and job loss, I put it aside and haven't…

Small Things: #4

The temperature here in London seems to have risen, and, thank goodness, it is now comparatively comfortable to walk to work.  I suspect it will get cooler again soon, but I’m hoping we won’t see any snow this year. If we ever get any here in the UK, it usually arrives in February so I guess there’s…

WIP Wednesday: Neon Beach Socks

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I've plunged right back into another sock project and they're quite the contrast to my Holiday Socks! There's also a bit of a difference this time, in that I've come up with the slipped stitch pattern myself. It's super easy to remember (great car/movie knitting) I look forward to writing…

Ta Dah! Holiday Socks

Wow, well this is a bit of a first – I've completed two pairs of socks finished in less than two weeks!  These socks were started whilst I lounged across my parents sofa on Christmas Eve. Somewhat predictably then, I've named them Holiday Socks.

Small Things: #3

This Small Things post is still all about staying cosy and comfortable at home. Over the weekend, quite a few areas of UK saw snowfall and there has been a drastic drop in temperature that everyone seems to be feeling.Where I live, in SW London, we escaped anything settling. There were a few flakes on the roofs but…

Ta Dah! Crackle Socks

I was hoping to post this last night, but unfortunately I had a bit of an accident in the Kitchen where I managed to take a slice out of the ring finger of my right hand. Due to the number tiny blood vessels we have in our fingers, I then had to spend most of the…

WIP Wednesday: Routine

Happy hump day. Or not, as the case may be.  It seems to be getting colder each day here in London, so I am still firmly in hibernation mode. Things at work are still manic, and I'm still suffering from severe fatigue due to anaemia, so it really doesn't bother me at all that my nights…
