I am going back on Friday to help do the kitchen, there is painting going on tomorrow and I have my visitors coming.
The boot socks are finished and more are wanted, another 2 pairs, later on. I have cast on a new pair but they are for knit and natter, I will share once they are finished.
I used the new heel construction and it was highly rated by the recipient. I should have taken a closeup, I will do soon the next pair.
Tina, from Loobylouyarns was at knit and natter yesterday, she brought me some wonderful homespun, Merino and Silk, in a peacock colour. It is eye candy of the 'nth degree. I wish that she had a sweaters worth.
Any way, after coming home and cleaning up and changing I set the swift and winder up.
The yarn is greener in the flesh, but just look at the shine, it is a shame that you can not feel the softness.
I have cast on a simple 1 row reversible pattern. There is a nice lot of texture but no so much that the yarn slides into obscurity.
There is a deal of Alpaca fleece being washed at the moment so I am hoping for a sweaters worth in the not too distant future.
When I did my Sunday shop I was just in time to pickup a stack of RTC veg, courgettes, mushrooms, peppers, celery and carrots. As well as cooking a roast I cooked for the freezer. I now have a pile of chilli, chunky pasta sauce and curry packed away. Once the garden days start I will be able to eat without worrying about cooking.
Now I really need to get back to the scarf, it will be a gift for a birthday next month.
Tea wouldn't go amiss either.
