A whole week passed without a stitch being knitted.
Today was the day to remedy that.
I selected these two stash yarns - cream Bendigo woollen mills luxury and this very old Patons yarn in a deep burgundy colour to make the Sanquhar Socks from 'Knitting socks from around the world'.
These are knit from the cuff, so far I have completed the band. The coming Easter break, which is promising to be considerably cooler, should see good progress on these. I am eager to see this pattern grow in the fabric.
The hook has not been idle. I am currently working on the final round of the blanket but the rows are long and I need to concentrate so it may take a couple more days.
I recently started reading 'The Necessary Aptitude - A Memoir' by Pam Ayres. The title refers to the reason for being dismissed from her first job - as in 'lacks the necessary aptitude'. Guess her superiors didn't appreciate her humour?
While the book includes a lot of detail it is written in her easy to read style and is quite entertaining.
Joining all the talented participants who yarn along.
Hope there's some time to create in your week.
