It's turned a little dull here this weekend. This is a disclaimer because my photos are a bit dark as a result. (I'm also still in my pj's but there we have it!!)
No FO's again this week, but I have made lots of progress on my WIP's.
My Arne and Carlos socks are nearly there. I did the fish lips kiss heel and am making my way along the foot. I love this heel - once I got through all the instructions it was easy and looks lovely on the needles. I have tried them on and think they will fit great. There is no pattern for these - just vanilla as the yarn does it for you.
OK so I know I'm supposed to be on a yarn diet and was satisfying the shopping urge (I don't indulge in anything else - yarn and yarn related objects are my only vice) with stitch markers and the like. However, this week I "had" to get some west Yorkshire spinners in the birds colourways while I was buying some stitch markers!!
Then I went completely crazy and bought Kate Davies book Yokes having seen some clips (like I need more sweater patterns!) and noticed that Knitting Goddess was having a sale to make room for lots more British yarn, so I bought a little of that. I haven't received these yet so next week I will share them with you.
I am not currently participating in any KAL's as I am finishing the test knit, however ...
I am going to use the new Knitting Goddess wool in two sock KAL's - the no nylon KAL with Joeli Creates and a new techniques KAL (it's not called that) with The Grocery Girls podcast. I will start these next weekend.
I also want to participate in a sewing a long with the Yarngasm podcast - I want to sew another Dominique and a couple of tops before the summer, so hopefully that will spur me along.
I think that is it - join us here.
