And Again...


another sock to match the other sock (and another Hat to keep a head toasty).

It's all about socks and hats here as we head towards winter, though you'd hardly know it with the summery weather we are currently experiencing.

There has been a little more crochet action here which has seen the completion of this colourful fluffy hat made from this blank grey piece I showed a couple of weeks ago.
Northern lights cone hat
All the hat making of late has left a small dent in the stash, especially in the novelty yarns, which is very nice as I always have difficulty deciding how to use them.

I started the second of the free sole socks yesterday and have now finished the instep ready to attach the sole.
The books are both from the library, picked up from the display stand based on the titles.
'The Healing Power of Coffee' by Cal Orey contains  a lot of research information as well as some interesting recipes for drinks, food and medicinal remedies. A good read for anyone who enjoys their coffee.
'The Age of Miracles' by Marianne Williamson offers insight into the middle years of life and how roles change in both family and society. Lots of thought provoking ideas in here for me.
Joining the Yarn along this week.
Wishing you sunshine and warmth in your creative space.

Powering along with the destash. The cone hat is very interesting. So the grey bit has been embellished with the other threads?

The healing powers of coffee? I'm in. :) I like to do some crochet, too; nice to switch between knitting and crochet to give myself some variety. Happy crafting!
