and I’ll no doubt say it again, and it can never be said enough:
I bloody love ravelry
I’ve been swapping again, and received the most amazing box of lurv from my swap partner, including yummy sock yarns cute stitch markers, a squidy bag and a gorgeous hansigurumi octopus.
I love cephalopoda so much, must get around to knitting up the hansigurumi squid pattern I have.
My partner in the same swap has now received her goodies from me and loved them too, and now I can share a couple of small makes I did for the swap.
pattern: Deep Sea Flower Dice Bag by Nina Hyland
yarn: oddment of Noro Kureyon
made for swap and various other cats of my acquaintance
pattern: Easy Peasy Catnip Mouse by Meelai
yarn: random oddments
In between the sewing, I have managed to get in some knitting time too, enough to finish son’s bee socks:
turn the heel on my second bamboo sock and cast on a new pair of socks for DrM. And I am desperate to cast on a pair of Owlings, after meeting Lucyvanp’s cashmere pair at knit night. I have a single ball of alpaca from a swap, and some matching beads. When my bamboo socks are finished my Owlings are starting.
