So I haven’t blogged for a few days now which is so not like me, whats been going on in the Snob home? Well with friends staying over at the weekend and parents going in and out of hospital (they’re fine btw), giving friend a pc lesson, which mashed my brain and doing bit of diy, I managed to start on another stole 🙂
First time knitting with beads, they got everywhere but I really like the effect
First time knitting reading a chart, but my eyes keep wandering onto the next line
First time knitting with two skeins of yarn, they get tangled quite often and I know from experience to knit them both together 😉
……and so far its going ok!! a little slow as I have to readjust my brain each time I read the charts.
You can’t really see the beads from the picture but they are Mill Hill Beads, very good in quality as they are all the same size and shape. The pattern is Hanami which is beautiful. I’ve decided not to knit with lace weight yarn just yet as I just don’t think I am comfortable with it and the pattern is a little too complex for me.
Then I managed to dye some yarn, an order and a gift which is part of a sock swap which was months ago..sorry!!!
I hope they like them.
Superwash Sockweight Yarn. I have two more skeins to dye up for the shop so watch out for it. This sock yarn is for “lazy” people who do not like to handwash their socks lol.
BFL/Alpaca, lovely and soft and dyes differently from merino.
and now……its time for a chocolate moment 🙂 aaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
