New Adventures :)

new projects

I am glad to finally have some new colours to work with and some new projects to look forward to :)

I have finished my cuffs and will show those to you on Friday.

This week I will be adventurously starting a couple of projects, for a couple of reasons!

Firstly, it is getting cooler, so I have the urge to knit!
Secondly, I am excited as I finally have the urge to knit!
Thirdly, as always, I have decided to spontaneously start some new projects in the hope that they will be completed in time for the festive season!

Yesterday I ordered some yarn in preparation for some gift knitting. I am hoping the parcel will be here by next week and then I will show you what I have in mind.

In the image above you see some of the beginnings of new projects.

Firstly:

Drops Fabel

These two lovely autumny coloured yarns will be used to knit myself some Zigzagular socks :)

Next:

Drops Fabel 151

These two will be the first of the festive knits. I plan on making Jas some Classy Slip-Up Socks.

Besides that I plan on finishing up my last kitchen cloth which has been hibernating for the longest time!

Today, I also signed myself up for the SAL that Truly Myrtle is hosting.

For the SAL I plan on knitting Libby's awesome Mindful Shawl (She is offering a discount on her patterns until the 2nd September) and am considering knitting it in this Regia Yarn that I have in my stash, but I am not sure if it will work out well :O

If not, there will be some other yarn coming in my order that I could definitely use for this project!

I also plan on sewing myself a thing or two! Not sure what just yet but I do have some fabric waiting to get a new form!

What have you been up to this week?

I will be sharing this with all my creative weekly friends, so head on over for some awesome inspiration!

See you on Friday.

    1. Hi mamasmercantile,
      They really aren't very hard to do, i would rally you on to give them a bash :)
      There are some really great resources out there for sock knitting beginners. I also have a sock pattern that may help you starting off. It is a free pattern, you will find it under the top tab - Patterns. Just scroll down a little :)
