Growing


A similar image to last week although both the pieces have actually grown :)


I decided to dedicate my weekend knitting time to work on my Misae.

I worked and worked and worked and have managed to move perhaps another 4cm forward in length!

I am well into the red now and still have a couple of weekends work to go until I can finally bind off. I am enjoying the mindless knitting that this bit of the pattern is giving me and each row seemed to move a little quicker than I expected whilst watching movies with the family :)

My Jaywalkers are also moving along nicely and I am in the second half of the foot section already.



I am loving watching the other Jaywalkers grow in the Sock-Along, each of them are so wonderfully unique and each pair looks completely different to the next.


Talking of Sock-Along, I have managed to get a couple of lovely sponsors on board who will be donating some lovely goodies for those of you taking part to win :)

I will be having a draw every three months where I will draw three winners, one for each month that is past.

To take part in the draw all you need to do is take part in the Sock-along. 

You do not need to knit all 12 pairs if you don't feel that you could accomplish that!

Set yourself a goal - eg. a pair every other month, 4 pairs for the year, or go for the full Monty and accompany me throughout the year to accomplish the full 12 pairs :)

Whatever you decide to do for yourself is great!

You can take part how ever you would like to, what ever you think you could accomplish.

For your name to be added to the draw at the end of every three months all you need to do is to have knit a pair of socks to completion in the same month that you started them in.

I would love to welcome you along for the ride, so come on over to the Ravelry group and join in the fun.


I am so excited about what will be happening sewing wise this year :)

I have been on the waiting list of a local sewing group for the good part of last year, and this week I finally managed to bag myself a place!

Each week I get to sew with an accomplished seamstress and she helps me to make my clothes get that extra edge to them - Isn't that cool?

I will share my progress with you all and look forward to seeing how my sewing skills (and handmade wardrobe) have increased by the end of the year!

What have you been up to this week?

Do come by on Friday and share your finished objects with us all, I would love to see what you have managed to complete.

I will be sharing this post with all of my woolly inclined friends this week, so do nip over there for some incredible inspiration.

See you soon.

    1. Hi Jayne,
      Thanks, the Jaywalkers are also a really easy pattern to remember - I love that, I like to pack my socks in my bag and work on them while I am on the go and it is so nice to not have to constantly check if I am doing the pattern right, and to just be able to knit away, so cool!
      Thanks for your visit.

  2. I got my sock yarn! woohoo! its pretty and I am hoping to cast on for my socks in the next few days (If I can put down the cardigan I started HA) I was going to knit the Hermione everyday socks but I've never knit socks on circular so its kinda scaring me. I'll post over on the ravelry group when I start and if I need help. :) Have a great week!

  5. Those Jaywalkers look fabulous. That colour is perfect for these winter months, it is so cheerful. The red tone of your yarn on the misae is beautiful too. What great colours you pick out! Tania ~hedgerowharvest~

    1. Hi Rednesty,
      Thank you for your lovely comment.
      The colours are lovely but I cannot take any credit for them. The only thing I have done is put them to use in a pattern. The talented ladies who made the yarns are Jaywalkers - Rita @ Spinnwebstube and Misae Shawl - Andrea @ Wollehimmel :)
      Have a lovely rest of your week.

    1. Hi Elise,
      Yes, I have named my socks "80's Tupperware" because they so remind me of the colours that were available then :)
      thanks so much for your visit.
