There's been all sorts of woolly stuff going on lately.
More baby socks, this time for a client. She wants a green pair too.
Aaaw, so wee! I love knitting these.
A dye session with Sooz yielded three 200g skeins of this bulky weight 12ply (originally from the op shop, blogged here and I just re-read that post as I linked to it - that was a doozy, wasn't it? Sheesh)
Also from the dyepot came these two skeins of sock wool. I am particularly enamoured of the two-tone one at the bottom (that's Moss and Bloodwood, aren't they fab shades?) and can't wait to knit it up. It's 3 ply sock wool though, not 4 ply, god help me.
Keeping me warm these days is this little beauty, purchased at the Twilight Market recently. It was on the stall next to mine and I was eyeing it off right from the start when we were setting up. As the market began and customers started arriving, various people tried it on, thought about it and went away saying they'd come back. One woman even buried it at the bottom of the basket of woollies so it would be there later if she still wanted it. The longer this went on the more I realised I was starting to think of it as mine so I stopped giving people the evil eye and just forked out and bought it. I love it.
Love it. The other night I was wearing this shawl while sitting by the fire spinning. I kid you not. I tell you, it's like a fairy tale around here some days.*
This little darling called to me, all the way from Etsy.
Isn't it divine?
I was getting dressed for work the other day and Mr Soup said Are you going to wear a birds nest pinned to your breast all day then? To which there was only one reply. Too bloody right.
*You know I'm joking, right?
