So, I am still preparing a silver clay post for you guys, but it is taking me longer then originally anticipated to sort through all the pictures so I have a knitting update. As a teaser though, in my silver clay post I will be showing you how I made myself a tea cup and saucer pendant to symbolise the Mad Hatter's tea party in Alice in Wonderland.
But, until that is done, to the knitting...
Remember these Berry Socks from way back here
and then here
Well, look at them now! One sock finished and the second one I am knitting the heel flap at the moment, I am feeling really rather productive.
What made me pick these back up you ask? Well really I have that Hermione sock to blame, I just couldn't get back on with it so I have set it aside and decided to finish this really simple pair before tacking the more complicated ones with their modified eye of partridge heel.
As you can see there is some colour pooling, and I really wish they were a bit tighter around the leg, but the first one will make a lovely comfy sleep sock so I am not really going to complain!
When I have these finished I will only have the Hermione socks and a second Bella's mitt in pink to complete and then I will start with something new, either a garment or a shawl, both new things for me and so will get my brain going I am hoping. Before then, however, I am hoping to have the second alchemy post up and possibly a little sewing one up about some project bags in a lovely gingham fabric
I got from Laura Ashley in the sale. Nice and summery.
I hope you all are well :D
P.S. I celebrated my 22nd birthday on Sunday and treated myself to some hand dyed yarn from Fresh From The Cauldron
, more info when they have been dyed and have arrived, which should be early next month!
