Hi! Happy new week to you.
I finished a pair of blue socks a while back but just realised I never posted them here. They're to be a gift for someone close, and I really enjoyed making them. I used beautiful hand-dyed Knitsch sock yarn and a pattern I made up as I went along, which I must admit resulted in a fair bit of unravelling and re-knitting and practising being patient (not my strong suit). There are some more notes on my Ravelry page here.
Over the past week I've also been working on some embroidered pieces, including the botanical one you see above. These are to be sent to Loop in London very soon.
And I found some embroidered bluebirds (is there anything sweeter?) tucked away which I felt had to be sewn into baby slippers for my shop - you can find them here.
Last week I wrote about how I had (finally) discovered audiobooks from my local library. Two new favourites have been added to my list: Sweet Tooth , a spy novel by Ian McEwan which I listened to while embroidering late at night and loved, and Kate Atkinson's Behind the Scenes at the Museum which I had read years ago but was very happy to re-read, or rather, listen to. Do you have any favourites?
I hope this finds you well, dear reader, and enjoying this fresh new week.
