Evening all, its slightly later than normal, its been one of those weeks! you know the one where you seem to have a never ending list of jobs and just when you think your at the end a few more pop up..well that’s been this week.
Updates this week a bitty. I’ve had a major go of startitis which I’m hoping will end up as a list of finishitis soon …
I started to crochet some hearts in the hope of turning them into a garland of sorts for the girls bedroom. I don’t have a pattern as such and I’m just sort of making it up as I go along. I am using King Cole’s Bamboo Cotton with a 4mm hook.

I found my darning needle and closed the toe on the Hermione’s Everyday socks but haven’t had a moment to cast on the second sock I’m really hoping later tonight or tomorrow I’ll get to do that, I do need to nab one of my boys for winding the second skein of yarn though. I signed up for the sock KAL along with Sarah at Crafts from the Cwtch . Apart from casting on the other night I didn’t get back near these. I am doing the twisted cable rib socks from the Ann Budd book. I’m using Opal Faeries and Elves with a 2.5mm dpn. Some of you recommended Opal and I had a ball in my stash so I’m going to see what it knits up like as I can get this readily enough and is not overly expensive.

And lastly I’ve another two or so inches to go on the In Threes but its coming along nicely and is a quick knit. This picture is a better one of the shade. Its Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK on 4 mm needles.
These are the projects for this week with hopefully some of them being finished. I also need to start a dishcloth gift set for an upcoming birthday, so I’ll throw that into the mix also. I won’t bore you with the list this week as there has been little progress on it.
