treasure hunting in my grandmother’s craft room
After many afternoons spent searching for treasures in my grandmother’s craft room, we found two beautiful pieces of needlework. Both of which I later made into cushions, which decorate the Homespun House Household ! She also gifted me a beautiful pair of yellow socks knitted by her mother, Ruby
on the needles
While it is not something I am able to work on every week. I am still going strong and loving to knit my Cozy Memories blanket. I like to do this in between projects when scraps are available. Will my grandmother’s odds and ends may make an appearance in the Cozy Memories blanket as well at a future date ! Time will tell ! The A Homespun House KAL is going strong ! Many people have finished their lovely shawls and I am 17 rows short (or LONG, as there are over 500 sts per round!) on finishing up my shawl ! Tara of Spin Monkey‘s and Fondant fiber will be very generously providing the giveaway prizes for A Homespun House’s KAL !!! I decided my plain ‘Molly’ socks are too much fun, that I ripped out my original sock plans and re-cast on a my normal sock recipe. However, inspired by Sara of ‘Oh Sknit‘ podcast, I plan to soon have two different socks on the needles at a time !
I am really loving and hoping to spin with my SpinCityUK lavender fiber batt on my new spindle !! A wonderful friend and viewer of the podcast was so generous as to send me the Patons Kroy sock yarn I have been drooling over for the past few weeks. I haven’t decided yet as to who’s feet will be lucky enough to wear them.
