Goodness, it's been rather a long time since my last post! I usually average about one per month but this time it is nearer two months. Owing, if I'm honest, to a combination of life and apathy. A few things have happened: L and J came to stay for a few days, which was wonderful; I met my friend, S, at Dyrham Park for a catch up; R and I have been out and about in Bridget, and a bit of autumnal knitting may have occurred along the way too! It doesn't sound much when I write it all down but the time has definitely gone somewhere!
Here then are the photos from my camera clearing session:
I attended a workshop at a local farm to learn how to make Emily Foden's 'Persephone Mittens'. Even though the pattern was a little tricky to understand in places, I could probably have worked it out on my own but the workshop was more of a social gathering with a yummy lunch included. I need to get them finished; they have been on the back burner whilst I worked on my Hallowe'en socks.
The mug in the photo is the one that I bought in the Leach Pottery in St. Ives. I love it!
Talking of Hallowe'en socks, here they are. They are made with Stranded Dyeworks 'Fright Night' yarn which had been languishing in my stash for a while.
I also made L a pair of birthday socks with the yarn left over from my spiral wrist warmers. I had to add a mini-skein for the toes and cuffs. It is just the one mini-skein but the colour changed as I knitted making for an interesting end result. I don't think L will mind though.
