She tried it on today and I’m really pleased with it. Just a few more rows!
The yarn is called Hummingbird and it’s by Mothy & The Squid on Etsy.
I’ve cast on a pattern called Smooth Operator Socks by Susan B Anderson.
I’m using a Hiya Hiya mini circular. It’s the best one I’ve used get, with a decent point. This size are 2.25mm.
There’s the non edible type.
Back left Countess Ablaze, Lord Kitchener’s Lace in colour way Bad Girls Club; back middle, Devon Sun Yarns, Aran in colour way Spring Rainbow; back right Cat and Sparrow fibres, DK in colour way Great Ocean Road; front left Mothy & The Squid, sock yarn in colour way Hummingbird Stripes; front right Mothy & The Squid, sock yarn in Grey Skies, Rainbow Brite. 😊
And then of course there’s edible cake!
Yes my Mum is that age and no, she really doesn’t look it. (Side note I take after my Dad…)
Some friends came to visit today to go to the Frome Independent Market. One friend had offered for sale these two wonderful skeins of Devon Sun Yarns Aran weight, which I snapped up because I want to make my stepgranddaughter another Entrechat Cardigan in this colour way!
There was no chance I was going home without some! I did love the pinky orange at the top left but it was lace, so I chose the blue at top right. It’s DK weight and called ‘Great Ocean Road’. Gurt lush!
Pattern: Scrapalong by Woolly Wormhead
Yarn: brim & fifth stripe up Pinky on Deeply Wicked 4ply by Easyknits. All other yarns 4 ply by Skein Queen.
2.5mm circular KnitPro 40cm needle.
I was off work today and I invited my mum, my sister, my nephew and niece and both their dogs to join me in my garden for a pool party.
As you can see we had to completely cover up the rabbit hutch as both visiting dogs stare obsessively at the rabbits and we didn’t want the bunnies upset!
The pool was a great success and the children spent six hours over the course of the day playing in it and generally having a fabulous time. At the end of the day Mum’s dog Lucy also got in it!
In fact they were so tired they had a nap!
And while everyone did what they wanted, the adults sat and worked on projects.
My sister is making a second crochet mermaid tail blanket. Mum is making some Jelly Roll socks (from the same designer as ‘Rose City Rollers’). And I’ve cast on some Drops Big Merino for another Darkke Hat, this time for my brother-in-law.
