Celebrating my creative life in the Yorkshire Dales!!
Tuesday, 14 February 2012
Well last nights crochet group at our favourite real ale establishment turned out to be knit and natter for two, unfortunately the crochet crew all had different sorts of lurggies and they were sorely missed . Rachel and I ended up having a sock themed evening , Rachel was finishing her second pair of socks and me starting my first ever pair .
Rachel was full of handy tips and we both did a lot of concentrating as Rachel commented it's wasn't much of a knit and natter but a knit and concentrate. Rachels socks are exquisite , she is finishing them off and she doesn't mind me sharing them with you .
Rachel busy away !!
You can just make out the detail at the top of the sock , a smoking type pattern with beads , well I hope I'm this good by the time I get onto my second pair ( best crack on with the first pair ! ) .Even though we were small in number it was a good evening ! Also sorry about the quality of these pics it was a very dingy pub.
Today I've had my second Ta da moment of the week. I've finished my Sammy Scarf pattern today , not sure if I'm going to keep it or give it to one of my nieces.
While I'm on the subject of finishing jobs , yesterday I finished my candied peel experiment from a few days ago . What a result one big jar of beautifully candied peel which i can't stop nibbling at .
Any way I can hear my sock yarn calling me , I'm really enjoying the little needles and fine yarn !! Ta ta for now .
