5 Elements of Fascination


What a wonderful Autumny day we are having. Overcast and the perfect weather for sitting down and focusing on some of my projects, and planning new ones for next week :-D
What are my 5 Elements of Fascination you may ask, let me count them down for you.
Number 1:
Sock number 1 is finished and looking good. I do think that I will be keeping this sock as a trial sock though, as then I can refer back to it to see where I made mistakes and where I can better myself at the process of Fair Isle, so I will be keeping it in its' raw state - loose ends and all :)
Number 2:
I finally managed to get passed the ribbing on Jas's Pullover - YEAH! So now it  can only move quickly. Now that I am on to the stocking stitch part I am really enjoying this knit and have spent most of my time this week on this project.
Number 3:

I am joining in with Callipidder Days Fall into Reading Challenge. I think it is the ideal way to boost my reading in the next couple of months.
I have started on my long list and am reading and listening to two books to make a dent :-)
On my Ereader: Abandon by Meg Cabot
Number 4:

See this Tea-light Candle Holder? Would you like to know how I made it?
Now you can! Not only have I made a Photo-Tutorial of exactly how it is made, BUT, I have also made a Video showing you how to do it. Here is the Video for you to watch, I would love to hear your comments, as I loved putting the video together and hope to make many more of them over the next months.

Number 5: 

I am searching for a Blogswap Partner. What is that you say? You can read all about it here.
So those are my 5 Elements of Fascination for today.

I will be sharing this post with the Link-Ups I have listed

    1. Hi Elisabeth,
      Thank you, I so needed a new look and am liking the new. I think it is a bit more organised having simplified all my links and sidebars etc.
      I am really sorry to hear you are not feeling so great and I hope you are better soon.
      I would love to Blogswap with you. When you are better and are still interested, let me know.
      Thanks for your visit

    1. Hi Emma,
      Thank you, it is warm, I think before I start the next pair, I am going to first knit myself up some arm warmers as there really is a nip in the air and I can feel it in my aging fingers! LOL

  12. The fair isle sock is gorgeous. I like the idea of keeping it for a reference later. I'd really like to give fair isle a try sometime.

    1. Hi Janet,
      Thank you. I would say go for it, it really is a lot easier than you think it might be. Try something easy like a scarf or something to get you going.
