Knitting and London life. Not necessarily in that order.
Tuesday, July 3
These are the Socks that Block! I am totally chuffed with my sock blockers - not only were they desperately easy to make, I just LURVE the hooks on the top, perfect for hanging up the blocking socks to dry! They took about 5 mins (total) to make, and work perfectly.
Here's the finished items. I am sure my sockpal is going to enjoy! I have kept the label from the original yarn so that it can be attached back onto the socks (it's 'locally-sourced' yarn from the Yarn Yard).I'd just like to take this opportunity to apologise to Natalie at the Yarn Yard for the fact that not one single photo I have taken of this yarn does full justice to the richness and beauty of this colourway. If you want beautiful sock yarn (or even laceweight now, I believe) please consider buying from the Yarn Yard. You won't be disappointed with the yarn, and Natalie's customer service is second to none!
Meanwhile I'm racing along with this ever-so-easy item, something that has been requested from me for christmas. I'm not showing the whole thing just in case the intended recipient is looking, but do I get a prize for the earliest start on christmas knitting?!
