Sock fail

The other day i was getting re-dressed in the evening (I often ride home, have a shower, and then go out). I went to pull on my sock and discovered this:

Now I'd been wearing that sock all day, its not a new sock and is made of Socks that Rock, which is a sturdy sock yarn, and if I was told I could only use one sock yarn for the rest of my life, this would be it. No, it just failed.
So I fixed it, and although its not perfect it makes the sock wearable.
I'm not sure why i think this is significant enough to share. Maybe its a bit like what happened at work, everything is going along fine and then FAIL. And then of course I darn it, or throw it, or whatever and move on.

Anyway, I have taken today off work to prepare some fibre for spinning. I've popped some bread in the bread maker so I can have fresh bread for lunch, the sun is trying to come out and it looks like its going to be a very satisfying day. Have a great weekend!


  1. Yeah right, if I can blog about detangling yarn, you can most definitely blog about magically fixing a sock. Now I know who to turn to for all my agrrrrrrgh! moments ;o)

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!

Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.
