Well, I’m still here and still knitting and quite like to get back into blogging and sharing my love of knitted socks and other things, Life has changed quite a bit for me now as I now live in the Lincolnshire Countryside of which I just love, I do still spend part of the week in Nottingham as I do still work there for now, so once weekly I do the two hourly drive from/to Lincolnshire / Nottingham and also whilst in Nottingham I look after my mum. It is the knitting that keeps me sane. so without further ado here are some of my latest knitted socks so far this year
This is basic socks knitted in the new Regia Design Line Arne & Carlos in the shade Star-Light, I have been wanting some of this yarn for a while but everywhere seemed to be out of stock as it is a new line for Regia. I love the fairisle patterning in this yarn and I finished these last week.
Last month I finished these lovely socks which is part of The Knitting Goddess 2015 Pudding Club, and here we have Abricot Socks by Rachel Coopey. I really loved knitting these and the socks are very soft and warm to wear. The kit is actually January’s and I still have March and May’s kit to knit yet. So many socks to knit and not enough time lol 😉
Previous to that I knitted another pair of Vanilla Basic Socks again in lovely yarn from The Knitting Goddess Seaside 2015 Club the shade is called Beech Huts in the Snow. This was from January too and I still have the yarn for March and May kit to knit up too.
I am now part way through the second sock so hopefully soon will have another pair 🙂
My other pair on the needles is the March Shipment of the Rockin Sock Club, I do not have a progress picture as yet as I am still on the first sock but here is the picture of the kit that we received, I really love the yarn it is called Gran’s Kitchen
The pattern is lovely but involves lace so is quite slow going but I am making progress.
I did knit the January Club kit back in February and we have 59th Bridge Street Socks in the Shade Feeling Groovy and wow are these socks bright and quite Neon. The pattern was lovely to knit though and I enjoyed making them,
That’s all from me for now but will post more progress pictures soon and also a little more about what I have been upto over the last few years lol 🙂 Bye for now.
