The Week in Knitting
Well it's certainly been an interesting week. No bath, shower or cooker - ah the joys of DIY and the foolishness of doing your kitchen and bathroom at the same time! Still thankfully through it all there is knitting to keep me sane.
The last very overdue part of the Christmas presents is getting there and should be finished by the end of the weekend (I hope). This is great wool but two pairs of plain socks in the same yarn has tested my short attention span somewhat. A bit of Water Aid square and the fun of creating a glove have helped to keep things moving along.
An exciting parcel from Hong Kong arrived on Tuesday with 12 lovely sets of bamboo DPNs, sizes from 2mm to 8mm making socks in varying weights of yarns now possible. This were just the best bargain ever - £10 for the whole lot, hurrah and thank you Joyce :0) Dreaming of some cosy bright knee highs and have got some fabulous looking sock yarn on its way from HipKnits which I am VERY excited about and which I think I'm going to try and knit toe up. I think sales are about the best thing January has going for it.
In other knitting news I'm actually all caught up with Cast On, I wasn't sure I'd ever catch up but with poor Brenda being ill I'm suddenly there and all ready to go with the new one which arrived today - what fabulous timing! Have also found a couple of other podcasts to try out now I have some more free ear time - Pixie Purls and Pointy Sticks - so glad there are so many out there to keep knitting to.
