Hello! I’m so sorry that I’ve been neglecting my blog lately – I’ve just looked at the date on my last post and it’s almost a month ago!
I have fallen into the trap again of forgetting/procrastinating putting my photos onto my computer! It somehow seems like a huge task, even though it takes hardly any time at all really
However, I have been cooking, and doing a bit of knitting too, though not as much as I feel I would like to. I’ve been having a few troubles with my toe-up socks, and have frogged the heels again and again, I just can’t seem to get them right! Hopefully this time… Though not a skill I really wanted to learn, this tutorial on Knitty has some excellent tips for frogging! I was always slipping the stitch off the needle, hoping and hoping that it wouldn’t unravel before undoing it and slipping the lower stitch onto the other needle – the tips in the tutorial make it sooooooo much easier!
On Friday I went to the beach with my mum – she went kayaking out into the sea to go fishing. My mum is a mad beach glass collector, but there isn’t a lot of beach glass on this beach… She makes her own jewelry from the beach glass, and recently made her first sale from her online Felt Shop – how exciting!
So, because there were no beach glass hunting opportunities to be had, I sat in the blazing sun (which was sooooo warm for the middle of winter!), read my book, and did some knitting on my Stockholm Scarf, it’s a big project! I ended up buying two (three?) more balls of wool, because the first one only made about 10 cm of scarf. I want mine to be big and snuggly… I am really glad that I decided to go with the 4mm needles, it makes a nice tight rib-like pattern, but is anything but boring with the lacy detail, just what I was imagining when I was looking for a scarf to knit. I really can’t wait until it’s done so it can hug my neck, but it may be a while yet!
Stay around, and I’ll update you on what’s been happening on the Spoons…
