What’s this?

I have been having fun with both my camera and some wool! Ok, so I’ve got another one to knit but I just keep looking at this beautiful sock and its wonderful clear stitches. Such a pleasure to knit, I think I am going on a sock fest…I even bought a pattern from Ebay yesterday to make socks on my knitting machine. I’ve not made any yet, but I am itching to do so. It was great getting this old pattern, it only cost me 99pence and I didn’t have to pay any postage as it was a scan and they simply emailed me the scan and Barry printed it off for me :^)

I had an accident with a cardigan I made for myself on my knitting machine …. it came out too big so I thought I would put it in the washing machine on a quick wash, well you all know what happened don’t you? Yep …. it came out too small but I do know someone little that it will hopefully fit so it’s not all bad, but it was a shock seeing this tiny cardigan coming out of the machine but I had to admire the wonderful felted fabric I had created, it was a mix of pure wool and cashmere (ssshhh I know, I know…) and felt deliciously soft and fluffy. Anyway, I measured the new fabric for stitches and rows per 10cm and have actually made an enormous cardigan that will hopefully turn out my size! I have been taking photos along the way so if it works I will proudly show you the finished article.
