Yes, I do still knit. It’s just these days, I tend to knit at work and spin at home, and my camera lives at home … well you know how it goes.

So here’s some of what is currently on the needles…

The Looza sock: I’m using Trekking Bamboo, which is quite interesting to knit with - a bit hairy but softens up a lot. The pattern is from Knitting Vintage Socks but without the lacy cuff.


New socks for me: Sorry, the photos are hopeless because it’s dingy weather here, but it’s coming along nicely trust me :-) The yarn is from Cairi’s Knitting Goodies on Etsy, I loooove her colours and am desperately resisting joining the sock club (not to mention the lace club) (my stash is full my stash is full my stash is full…)


I am also steadily working away at the Purple Cable Extravaganza (close set cables every 4th round for 8″ - whose idea was that anyway?) but it’s at work so no pics today.

And a finished object!

The Seaside Socks which I forgot to photograph before sending them off. The pattern will be available soon from Angel Yarns. (please note arty seashell shaped sock with accompanying beach pebbles ;-))


I have deadlines, and I do want to get to the shop today to hang out with the crowd, so I must go and treadle a bit more.

    Lovely socks!

    Etsy was designed to bankrupt us all…I am often lured there from some blog or another, but my stash is full too…well, I may squeeze a bit more in there…;)

    Ooh, very nice socks. I do so want some of Cairi’s yummy looking yarn….but have to knit more stash before I’m allowed to join either of her clubs!! She has promised to do them again if they do well….so hopefully we can sign up next time, right?! :-)

    I don’t understand this “my stash is full.” I need some help with this one.
