Not sure if I fell a sleep and missed a few days, but I can't believe how fast October is flying by - the 15th - ALREADY! So much to do, so little time - as always.
Anyway today I thought I had better show you what I've been working on, before October runs away completely.
I have two finished objects. The first is this cute crocheted bear.
He doesn't have a name yet, so any suggestions would be welcome.
I made him using a variation on my Tutti Frutti Bears pattern. I should write up the pattern, and one day I will, but you know how it is!
The second finished object, is a pair of socks. My October socks were made using the Thuja pattern by Bobby Ziegler.
I love the colours in this yarn, so scrumptious. I thought about trying to match the colour pattern in the two socks, but the repeat was so long, I didn't bother. When I've got my boots on, no one will see!
You can see full details of this project over on my Ravelry page, here.
With the trip down to Tewkesbury, I had plenty of knitting time in the car. I'm still working on the purple cardigan I was knitting in the car when we went to St Asaph and Rhyl. I decided about half way up the body section, I didn't like the pattern after all. So I ripped it back to the ribbing and with a little adjustment, changed to my Edith pattern. I wear this cardigan so much that I thought it would be good to have it in another colourway.
So I'm now back, half way up the body section, but I'm feeling a lot happier with it now.
Embroidery, my quilt and of course the decorating, are also keeping me busy. In fact, I blame the decorating for the loss of so many days in October. I need to sort out a new carpet now and some fabric to make curtains - then it's curtains to the decorating, for the time being.
