Socks Are DONE!!

This is one thing to tick of my must do list. Completed, ends tied in, ready to wash and wear. DH seems happy with, I think he is just glad that there are 2 of them. Like lots of other people, it is easy to not want to get the 2nd sock done. As these were done in worsted weight they were finished a lot quicker than I expected.

I was gifted some lovely patonyle in Bue for Christmas in July. My treat once I have completed my must do's is to cast on socks for me.

The socks is not all I have done, I have also finished another couple of sqaures for my Cable and Lace throw, there will be no sneeky pics for this one, but I will get shots up once it is all finished.

How are you going on your WIP list? Is it bigger than Ben Hur?

My Crafting Goals so far....

I have a few wips (works in progress) on the needles and hooks. So my crafting goals mostly are to do with clearing out the old, so I can come in with the New!

1. Finish the Cable and Lace Throw, for my Crochet Workshop in April. If you are interested in coming to the workshop or any of the other workshops offered by Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre Artisit, Check out this link. Photo's coming soon.

2. Tims Socks, which I started on the 2 Jan 2011 and got the first one done by the 3rd of Jan, now no heart attacks please, I am using worsted weight yarn, 10ply Luxury from Bendigo Woollen Mills, I am by no means a fast knitter.

3. Abbie's version of the Shortie Sweater, an awesome pattern I am using Moda Vera Ballroom, a seriously sequiny yarn in hot pink, 5 year old girl special LOL. I only have to sew up 1 side and crochet the sleeves onto it, a nights work, but not quite high on the priorities list.

4. Finish Weaving my tea towels, my very first weaving project, my good friend Karen helped me to warp up at the Annual Spinners Camp back in July 2010, and I have not done much on it, but I want my tea towels, and I would love to return Karens Loom sometime this century. I am sure she would appreciate that too.

5. Finish Spinning the Optim so that I can ply it with some of the lovely Ixchelbunny Super Angorino fibre that I have already spun, so that I can free up some bobbins. I really think that 6 is not enough, I may have to purchase more.....

Well who has been a blog slacker..... That would be ME!

Well, it is amazing what gets "not done" when DD5 is home on school holidays. And it feels like pretty much nothing has been done. So I am sitting in the quiet of my home, DD5 having a little nap (very unusual for her) and realised that it has been too long since my last update.

Christmas has been and gone. I did not really make too many pressies this year, I was a little time poor and hit the shops. We did get DD5's bedroom renovated and refurnished, it is now more of a girls room than a baby room.

But I did make this one for my lovely little neice, it is the Shortie Sweater by Lisa van Klaveren Designs, you can buy it from her etsy store here or from ravelry . For this one I used Yarn Bee Down to Earth 55% Acrylic/45% Cotton
