Stitch Markers and Socks

I've been making stitch markers and have been enjoying decorating my knitting with them. The top photo is a picture of stitch markers that I made from a treasured bracelet. One of my closest friends made me the bracelet whilst we were students, sharing a flat together. The elastic broke and I kept the beads. I made stitch markers out of the beads and I love them. That Fischer Price dog is another treasure of mine, a prized possession.

Sulley Socks

Mondays are my days off. I spent most of today knitting. I started a pair of socks yesterday. I am using Wendy Roam 4 ply (2002 Derwent- colour) I got it at This is Knit. It is such a lovely colour. I tend to knit socks using the magic loop method on 100 cm circular needles. These directions are best suited for this method but easily converted to using dpns. I cast on 60 stitches with 4 ply/sock yarn on 2.5 mm needles. Arrange 30 stitches on each half on a magic loop. I knitted 2 x 2 rib…

Today was a lovely day so I was able to do some drawing outside. I was messing with some inks. I haven't painted or worked with inks in many years. It was fun enough to mess around in the sun even though it felt a bit rusty. I am hoping to finish a knitting project soon. I'd just would love to finish what I am working on so I can start using them and also to share the photos. The handspun sweater that I have been working on is almost finished. I just realised that the new ball/skein of yarn…

Wrote out and coloured the William James Quote today. Lexi found herself a pacifier/dummy on a walk. I laughed when I caught her with it.

It's lashing rain here. I woke up at half 6 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. Went downstairs, made scrambled eggs with onions and spinach with some Cajun spice. Had the scrambled eggs and a cup of coffee and watched some episodes of Cheers on the couch with Lexi. Haven't had scrambled eggs in ages. I am not really doing the Auto Immune Protocol Disease Diet at the moment. We'll see what happens.... I spent the afternoon sewing a tote bag. I used fabric that I bought in NYC a…

Lights Out

Sunday was a comically trying day. My handbag strap broke in a shop when I thought was over the worse of it. The night ended with the shock of the town's lights going out. Note to oneself, buy more candles. The top photo was from Sunday and when the lights went out. I knitted for a bit by candlelight then headed to bed, laughing at the events of the day. The Autumnal coloured socks are another pair of Vestigials by Hedgehog Fibres. It is a colourway from one of the LHogan Sock Clubs that I…

Sunday

The goal for today is to finish this sweater. It should be quick and easy enough. Just a matter of doing it! I started two new hats and a pair of socks yesterday. It's not like I finished any projects!?! I dyed some yarn last night. I boiled some avocado skins and stones to make dye. I dyed some sock yarn with the avocado dye. The colour achieved was similar to old lady tights. I added some acid dye to four of the five skeins. I partially dyed them, keeping some of the avocado dyed areas…

Knitting and Stuffed Animals

This is one of the skeins that I dyed first with avocado skins then overdyed with some acid dyes. Yesterday evening, I decided I could take some photos for the blog of what I dyed with the avocado skins and over dyed with some acid dye. It was too late in the day for photos. The light was terrible and I photographed them anyway. These photos aren't great and I apologise. I finished the tan and handspun sweater. Now I need to weave in the ends. I would like to make some mittens with the…
