Yet another super busy week, but considerably more successful than last week, luckily.
My lovely new sock needle arrived on Saturday (along with a generous gift-yarny friends are some of the best!) so I cracked on with it straight away. I’d never used 9″ circulars before and knitting with such short needles takes some getting used to. However, I think I’ve got the hang of it now and sock 1 is now past the heel! I’ve calculated it will take about 50 rounds before the toe decreases begin so I think I’ll be doing a bit at a time. We’re on the right track though!
I’ve also started a new crochet stashbusting project which is worked in squares and therefore won’t be so hot to work with in this lovely summer weather. I’ve chosen colours from my stash that remind me of tutti frutti ice cream and used Victorian Lattice squares from a pattern I found on Ravelry. So far I’ve made 5 squares, but the plan is to make a round 25 for a baby blanket.
As well as the yarn projects, I’ve also got a kitchen WIP. I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and made elderflower cordial. It’s amazingly simple (but not very slimming world friendly!) It’s kind of not a WIP any more as I’ve just bottled it but it looked so pretty I felt the need to include it.
Doesn’t it look lovely infusing in the pan?
What are you working on this week? Has your craft slowed down in the hot weather? (I know I’ve had to devote more time to the allotment this week so I’ve not achieved as much as I’d have liked to.) Please share, mainly so I can be most!
