This week has been one of those weeks that flew by without me even realising. I had so much to do and I don’t think I accomplished the half of it. Knitting has been sparse as I eeekked out the last available time with my sister, who returned home to Australia. They arrived safe and sound and we shall continue to stay updated with each other via skype.
What little knitting I did accomplish this week seems to have been on my socks. I cast these on last Sunday and worked on them on and off on the school runs, when I actually remembered to take the project bag along with me! For these socks I’m using the Sockmaticians recipe for toe ups. Toe ups are not my normal go to, I can knit them I just seem to always opt for cuff down. These I’m just knitting a plain vanilla sock with the Jack Skellington colourway from Norah George Yarns. These I’ve given them the incredibly original name of Vanilla Toe Ups and I don’t think I’m going to lose my toes in these socks!
All other work was spent this week on my new website and my new design rebranding and name change was announced. For anyone who missed it;
Today I’m spending time on my Herbarium jumper, it has been too long and I’m wanting to make progress on it. This is where I left it some weeks ago.
I’ve no idea yet what my aim is to work on this week, that planning will be done a little later today at some stage as it is my second eldest sons 15th birthday. I do know this week if my website comes online I will have a new pattern release, I can’t say when as I’ve to just finalise the last few website bits.
So that just leaves us now with the list which looks like this;
