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…

Yarnalong - the one where everything is free

What's free is the hat pattern (Barley by Tin Can Knits). I am knitting it out of yarn left over from a project last year, so that's like it's free, right? And I'm giving it away to KOGO, so it will be free to help someone. I had nothing on the needles on Sunday night, and I needed to get ready for knit night on Monday, so I threw this hat project in my bag. Very quick, very easy. it's fun to be knitting on 5mm needles, after doing so much knitting on 2mm needles.

 I'm reading The Tiger Catcher by Paulina Simons. I am not very far through it, and it's the first of a trilogy. So far I am enjoying it, but it's mainly been background and initial character development. The book was free because it is from NetGalley, which also means it hasn't been released yet. Based on what I have read so far and Paulina Simon's previous books (Tully, Red Leaves, The Bronze Horseman)I would recommend it.

Yarnalong- the one that welcomes in 2019

I'm back at work today, and that was the first time I've written the new date. It was such a relaxing break - 11 days of cricket, knitting and reading. I'm knitting Jojo Locatelli's Cathedral wrap. Now that I've finished the lace ends, it's smooth sailing. That lace though! It's been a really long time (as in not in 2018 at all) but I figured it would be easy - after all, I've done a lot of charted colourwork with no problems, and that's the same, right? Wrong. 

Anyway, after I muddled through it was a very relaxing knit. The yarn is Oyster Yarn Maven a  merino / silk / yak blend, and it's just stunning to knit with. Smooth and soft and the most perfect shade of pink. Its knit from the lace ends, and then grafted together. I'm rather dreading grafting in pattern.

 I'm reading Whiskey Galore, the tale of a Scottish island that runs out of whisky during the second world war. Published in 1947 this novel is hilarious. I was originally planni…
