It’s rather busy here at w*****g HQ! The house is becoming rather erm….in need of some attention.
However, progress has been made, all the cummerbunds have been sewn, apart from some hand stitching and the buckles. The paler pink cummerbunds and bow ties are for two little boys, they are cousins, Barry’s grandsons, and one of them is going to be our pageboy. The darker pink cummerbunds do look as if they are made out of two different colours, I think it is the light, they are all one colour in reality. The bow ties have all been sewn, they just need clipping, trimming and turning and the then the fasteners stitched on.
I have also been making some socks using Cat Bordhi’s ‘New Pathways for Sock Knitters‘. (seems to be sold out in the UK) A lovely book, full of interesting patterns to test the sock knitter. Cat advises us to make these two little pairs of socks first, to familiarise us with the new techniques which are ingenious.
I love the way the shaping spirals in both directions in these socks and I am quite eager to make the dragon socks in the book where a dragon’s tail winds round the foot and leg…
I love the colours in this slightly fuzzy pure wool single ply yarn, not really suitable for socks but it needed using up. I think these socks would felt really easily and I may use some more of the yarn to make one of those sheep bags
Well it’s back to work for me, not much more to do now, just a few large cheques to write out!
Oh and my dress is completely finished!
