These pink socks are finished, I am now liking the shades.
Yesterday I wore my homemade pair, they are so comfortable and warm, these are the same yarn , but not a matching pair, which suits me.
Hand knitting from my friend Shelia
A gift from sign class ladies
Also for sign class, made by Mick, who bakes wonderful cakes.
Hubby ordered this ages ago, it will go in the garden in the summer, I love it
Hubby's sister, brother and BIL drove over from Wales to see us both, Su and Will came for a couple of hours, so we shared the very tasty cake and enjoyed a lovely time together.
I have totally finished the editing of my blog book 2017, details of how I make the book can be seen here, a post from last year. I have started importing pages into 2018, which I will print in November next year. I take so much joy from looking back through my books, curled in a chair with a hot drink in a huge mug.
I am doing more to my ripple blanket, I spend alot of time with hubby in the afternoon, him resting me with my crochet hook. I popped to our local wool shop and purchased a couple sets of knitting needles, I have rewound one of my hand died sock yarn, I have a shawl pattern, I will start it soon, simple design, just loads of stitches. But can you picture this, one big hank of yarn needs rolling into a ball, hubby can't use his arms, so no help from him. I sat with legs up on a stool, wool wrapped around my toes, feet wide apart, rewinding the yarn, almost fell of chair a couple of times, but yarn sorted ready to start knitting.
