I am doing these socks
but I tell you they are doing my head in. I frogged them 7 times and finally go them going. They are definatley not perfect and full of mistakes but I might use this sock as my practice and then frog it and do a real pair. Not too sure yet, I might be totally sick of them by the time I finish.
I have avoided these socks for 3 days and it is offical that they wouldn't fit my big feet , so last night I frogged them totally. Once I work out needle size i might try them again. Oh the joys to have small feet.

I made this bag over two nights just to have a go at felting. Here is the pattern
Well it took more time to felt than to knit I think.
2 goes in the washing machine, my machine doesn't do hot water so I had to bucket it in, and i also tried to hand felt with boiling water but in the end it worked.
I thought it would be a good bag for one project things to carry around with

Now these were originally made as longies but I thought they were too small and frankly they weren't getting used so after putting them away for a while I decided to frog them, very heart breaking work but I did it.
Now I have just finished them as shorties and they look so good and so glad I did it .
First photo is the longies and now the shorties

AFter weeks of procrastinating about the blue velour nappy that was at Itti Bitti I decided to get it for Flynn and of course you can't do yourself out of postage so go two Itti boos too.
Love them , the fit, the feel etc and I think Flynn approves

Scary stuff looking in there. I do need to get myself a nice new bag but haven't so just lug this one around the house and fill it up with everything.
Inside I have
1. Knitpicks- love them
2. Jo sharp yarn in forest green
3. KTog yarn knitted up into shorts that still need elastic
4. my pattern folder for all those patterns from the internet (so many)
5. All the other bits and pieces I seem to think i need in there.

After seeing a friend who is a very inexperienced knitter make a jumper from this pattern book and it was super fast i decided to make Flynn this hoodie vest. I am using Bendigo Rustic in Green Tweed in 12ply using 7mm needles. It gives a similar gauge.
I am being a bit lazy and doing the bottom body section in the round as I feel it is faster and then I will change to straights when i get to the arm shaping.
