Nothing to see here, with a side serving of hysteria and confusion

I made a pair of socks to match my Stasis. I finished them on Tuesday, and left them on the arm of the couch. On Wednesday, I put them in my handbag and took them to the pub, because I was going to ask Skip to take photos for me. I forgot, until we were leaving, and then it was dark and we couldn't be bothered. The socks never left my bag: but I also don't remember seeing them in bag at any point in the evening. 
This morning I wondered where the socks were, but we leave the house 15 minutes after the alarm goes off, so it was a pretty cursory look. I rang the pub at noon, and they said they hadn't seen them, although the guy definitly didn't look. When I got home tonight, I looked everywhere I can think off - and my house is a bit minimalist, there isn't a lot of anywhere for a pair of socks to hide. Leon rang the pub again, and this time they definitly looked. They even looked more and rang him back. 

So where are they?

That's the mystery. They could conceivable have come out of my bag at the pub, but nowhere else - we walked to and from without stopping and I'm carrying a Mimco bucket bag - it's shaped like this one: 

Nothing is falling out of this when I'm walking down the street. 
Contributing to the feeling of unease, is that the other day I put my work pass in my bike pannier at the end of the day. My ID had 3 parts, in separate plastic pockets (one's the picture ID, one for the lifts and one for the office doors) attached to a lanyard. When I got in to work the next day, the one to open the work door was gone. The pass had not left my bag after leaving the building and yet it has never shown up.
I have no idea what is going on. Maybe someone is gaslighting me. Leon says it's not him...but then he would, wouldn't he.

Yarnalong - the one that is also Unravelled Wednesday

Ah Wednesday, you come around so fast. I feel like every Unravelled and Yarnalong since I finished The Dress, I’ve said ‘I’ve just finished something small, and I’m about to start something else small, but I’ve been working on my Blankie”, and this week was almost like that. I’ve almost finished a pair of baby booties, which I will photograph properly  and talk about on Thursday for Once Upon a Sock.


I was going to knit something small next, because I really didn’t have any major knitting plans (except the blanket, the endless blanket) BUT. Sonia of Richmond Knitters fame is knitting a Soldotna Crop to wear to Bendigo. At least two of the other knitters are as well. I was joking that I would knit one, but I don’t have the yarn. Sonia decided she wouldn’t let that stop me, and said she would find some yarn for me in her stash. At this point I thought we were joking, but no. On the weekend I got a text from her with some stunning yarn selections. I didn’t go to Knit Night this Monday (I…

Unravelled Wednesday and Yarnalong - the one where it is sOctober

Ah sOctober, the funnest month of the year! I started some Mystic Spiral socks with the Richmond Knitters Christmas yarn last night. We are lucky enough to have Dani, from Half-baked Hand Dyed as a member of the Richmond Knitters. Knitting with her yarn is always a pleasure, and self striping is always so much fun. 


If you want to knot more about my sOctober plans, come back on Thursday, where I will fully expand on them for once Upon a Sock. In reading this week I finished Still Come Home by Katey Schultz.

It was a NetGalley review book, and as mentioned last week I was feeling a bit of trepidation, because I've had a bad run of review books. Well, this was fantastic. It was an modern American army book, but the story was told carefully and I really liked all the characters. The various points of view added depth and nuance to the book. It was definitely a winner. My full review can be found on Goodreads here. Then I startedForever is the Worst Long Time and that's all I have…

Why Kate Davies, why? (a rant)

Kate Davies is one of my very favourite designers. I have knit about 40 of her pattern over the years, and I generally like the way she writes her patterns. But sometimes she annoys the crap out of me. 

I'm putting the button band of Kildalton and once again, I have to work out the ratios for myself because the pattern just gives a number, and I cropped it. As I ranted last time, just giving a number makes everything more difficult than giving a ratio. Also, there is no selve-edge stitch, and the cable goes right up to the edge, which means that the stitches are picked up from a wavy edge. I thought that was odd while I was doing the knitting, but made the mistake of trusting the pattern.

All of that said, look how pretty those cables are. It's going to be a fabulous addition to my wardrobe - once I finish the button band and sleeves, so a little while to go yet, but putting aside my rant, it is a very enjoyable knit, and a well written pattern.
