I've been absent a little too long my bloggy friends and for that I am truly sorry. Since the summer holidays began three weeks ago, i've been waaaaaaay too busy with family shenanigans to manage to even pop in for a quick hello. But never mind, here I am with yarn and socks to delight you. What more could you want!
I didn't manage to get to Fibre East this year, as my daughter and her family were staying, so my dear pal Josiekitten asked if there was anything I would like her to bring back for me. 'A couple of pretties!' was my reply and she certainly didn't disappoint! Just look at those little beauties!
Just look at this gorgeousness. It's Travel Knitter's Tanami 4ply in just the best colour way EVER, 'midnight fireflies'. It's the softest of soft baby camel and silk. I LOVE it! It will become a gorgeously warm and snuggly scarf. I'd lusted after this little beauty since seeing Travelknitter's pics on Instagram. I'd missed her updates two or three times, so imagine my delight on receiving my very own 'midnight fireflies!
As if that wasn't enough beauty to behold, how about testing your eyes on this precious little baby. Aren't the colours just wonderful? It's hand dyed BFL with 25% nylon for sock strength, in colour way 'blackened rainbow'. It' just beautiful!
I've just got back from our annual family week together in North Yorkshire. We had a really good time as always, with lots of forest fun, beach time, good wine, Adnams gin, evening board games (when the little people were tucked up in bed), great food and each other. I even managed a little sock knitting.
This yarn was a special edition produced by WYS to celebrate Yarn Shop Day back in May. I'm loving the colourful stripes! Hopefully won't be too long before I have a pair to warm my toes when the Autumn chills begin to creep up on us.
This week I'm catching up with Josiekitten as we have a sewing and dyeing day planned and then next week I'm off to Provence with the younger Miss Snoops. I'm really looking forward for some guaranteed hot sunshine!
Hope life is treating you well, wherever your small corner of the planet may be!
