A Shiny Diversion

Ever been distracted by all things shiny? Of course you have :D I made this whilst I was supposed to be finishing off 'The Sock'.....I also cast on a bit of lace too.
I had this magpie moment when I found the kiltpin, whilst rummaging around in my box of bits looking for a sewing needle. The hematite winked at me from the bottom of said box too and that was it. I was occupied with something else lol.

I will finish the sock before September 30th....just need things to stop shining at me ;)

I have cast on for number two...I was considering doing the crosses in turquoise for the second sock...a deliberate left and right, what do you think? matching or complete insane proper odd socks made to measure!

A Fairisle First.

I started Anni's new september pattern for this months Sockamania challenge.

Image Hosted by was way too tight and I frogged it this morning. I really like this pattern though and I have started it again using the same colours, hopefully a lot more slacker this time round.

I'm still chuffed with myself though :D

This, That And An Award Aswell!

Firstly I would like to Thank CJ for nominating me for the schmoozer!...

"Schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection. Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogsphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship".
(I copied this off CJ, who copied it off of someone else first lol)

I'm quite chuffed but have to go through blogland now to find someone who hasn't got one already....maybe there could be another button made for schmoozer2 or something ;)
I'll get on to it soonish though I promise.

Next up are the last 2 items made from Joys lovely collinette yarns (I have now knitted or crocheted up the lot!)

The beanie is crocheted using giotto and prism (I think)...with a couple of embellishments, yet to be decided upon.

The scarf was made using colinette mohair in damson velvet colourway. I love the subtle shading in this colour and it's sooooo warm and not at all itchy (well not for me anyway)

Lastly...I've been working on this

I have made it up but basically it's just a stitch pattern called 'fern lace'done on 4.5mm needles...then a bit of rib, a needle change (4mm) and the rest is basically a tank top lol It has a sort of thermal vest look about it..think 'Damart' you get the idea.

I'm off to try a fairisle sock....maybe ;)
