When Kid Silk Haze Stripe was released by Rowan I fell under the spell of Twighlight 200 and knit it up with the pattern Petit Trous de Printemps
It reminds me of Autumn Fog laying gently on wild thyme and purple heathers, it is very, very pretty,
and as you may know Kid Silk Haze is the crack cocaine of the knitting world. Myself, well I have a love hate relationship with it. I swear quite profusely at times whilst knitting with it, but then fall under its spell as it grows from my endeavours. And once completed, I can forgive it almost anything.
Then there were socks, these were Regia Flusi Das Socken Monster in 1800 for me,
and socks for my little monster, son no.2 in Regia Flusi Das Socken Monster in 1805
Hubby was lucky enough to find these at the bottom of his Christmas stocking, Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball 2083 (very splity not in love with the yarn, but very in love with the finished item)
and Zweger Garn Opal Handwerk Und Hobby in Gardner 5043 which suits the allotmenteer in him.
There are other socks that I have started and not completed, and a hat that I am sure I have knit, but have since misplaced in the house. There may be another photography session in the not too distant future, but rest assured, Mandycharlie continues to knit and sew. This afternoon I have to continue with my task to recover the cushions which make up Mum’s conservatory suite – I am half way!
