Crazy, lazy, sock for me

I started these sneaker liners on the way back from camping a month ago, because I had finished the size 12 pair for my trainer and I had nothing to knit on the train home. I didn’t really work on them much over the month, but after I cleared by mothers jumper off the needles (photos on Friday, I promise) I picked them up, and finished them in a weekend.
 
I really do prefer the fit of a heel flap and gusset. This is the Yarn Harlot's pattern, but really, any 64 stitch heel flap and gusset pattern will do for me. 
 
They are not the colours I would have chosen for myself, but they were what I had. Also, I really did not want to be adding 30 grams of yarn to the left over sock yarn stash.
 
In fact, I ran out of yarn and had to finish the toes in LOSY. Better out than in, that’s what I say.
 
And so, I have a very wearable, durable, easy pair of socks to add to my sneaker liner collection. Which is quite timely, since I really need to do a wool wash and am down to two pairs of sneaker liners. I know what I'll be wearing to ride into work tomorrow.

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.
