The Week

  • Amelia and Grace are home after 2 nights with Chris' parents. It was so quiet around here without them and we got a bit done but it is fantastic to have them home again.
  • I stopped procrastinating and have started writing up some patterns
  • I am trying again with the magic loop sock thing. I nearly have one cuff done. It managed to get so tangled last night and I felt like I was knitting with an octopus.
  • The weather has turned cold so it was pea and ham soup for dinner (I love soup weather).
  • Cut into some fabric and started a new quilt

Let me know if the magic loop method is easy to do. I am going to try to knit 2 socks on a circular needle. I hope I have read the book correctly as it seems simple enough, hope it works. Enjoy your soup!

hahha, knitting with an octopus! That made me laugh. :)

Oh, I hated the magic look method! I hope it goes better for you than it did for me! I'd stick with double point needles any day over that mess.

I miss soup weather! It was 90 here today. I'm a light cardigan weather kind of girl. Not so keen on the sweating. Our 3 kids are going to grandma's for about 10 days. I hope I get some work done! I've been thinking about doing some of those squares. I love the simplicity of the patchwork cross.

I'm exhausted Kate! I love soup weather too and at 99cents a kg for butternut pumpkin at Aldi the other day how can you go wrong?

Soup weather - nice. Looking forward to it. Love pea and ham and one of these days I will share my all time favourite pea and ham recipe...

My knitting is already on the backburner. Mum will be here in a couple of weeks and she will get me moving!

Love that fabric you have shown. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

We eat quite often pea and ham soup here in Finland! I like it very much!

Well Hello There!

It has been a while since my last visit and I had to stop and say hello! :o) The sock is coming along just beautifully and the colorway is amazing! I purchased two skeins of Malabrigo worsted weight today in a breathtaking blue, now I must find that special little something to knit. Good luck with your sock, I know it will turn out just wonderful!

Smiles....
