Been a bit slow ...

on the old blogging this week. I'm going to blame it on the head cold. It's finally made it to the blocked sinuses stage so hopefully it will soon be gone. But alas I haven't been too quiet.

Check out the piccys below to see what I've been up to this week besides playing Animal Connect on the computer.

Completed is the Flared Lace Smoke Ring except for blocking. Hopefully will do that next week.

Another finished object. I'll try and take some better pictures when the sun is up. This is simply a red and green spun alternatively then plied with a gold single. First skein off the spinning wheel so quite happy with the result but still have much to learn.

Still working on the soakers. This one is the medium size. Thought I'd colour code them to make life easier for a new mother. The yarn again is Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarn in Aran weight.

Started is another Flared Lace Smoke Ring this time in Fleece Artist SeaWool. See loved the pattern so much had to do another which is quite unusual for me as a process knitter.

And another started for a friend is a basic 2x2 rib sock in Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarn Wool/Nylon and is wonderful to work with. Reminds me a little of Patons Patonyle. I also have a skein in pink colourway for another pair. Funny I wouldn't have chosen this colour myself but really like the knitted result.

Well that's all from me for the moment.

Keep smiling :-)
