Three Down, Not Many More to Go

I'm looking forward to starting some new projects shortly.  Today I can show you three more finished objects, hurray!

The first one is my socks for this month.

I just loved the colours in this sock yarn, so knitted up a pair of plain socks.

For these socks though, I tried a different heel style.  I used the Fish Kiss Lips heel which gives a lovely looking heel and a great fit.

I'll definitely be using this heel style again for my socks.  It looks so neat.

My second finished object is a little crocheted mat to sit inside my notebook basket.

It's just two-round grannies in random arrangement of colours with shell buttons sewn on.

I used join as you go for the second rounds, so it was a very quick make, but I think it adds a dash of colour to the basket.

Finally for today, I made a little doily.

It's crocheted using acrylic DK and is based on a doily I made many years ago.  I made this before I discovered Ravelry, so I have no record of where the pattern came from.  I just copied the original doily, which had been done in just one colour.  I think using the different colours brings out the details of the daisy quite nicely.

So that's it for today.  Won't be long now until I'm having another cast on party!


  1. You have been busy! I love the socks, I have one sock completed and I'm up to the heel turn on another, this will be my second pair i'm dying to get them finished but other things seem to get in the way. The mat and doily are beautiful too. :)

  2. I love that you put buttons onto the little granny mat, they look wonderful. You know how I feel about a button.

  3. I love your socks and the basket liner is so pretty!!! xx
