Yarn Along



I'm in a very happy knitting place right now with three projects on the pins all at the stage of pick up and knit any time.  This is my absolute favourite place to be, maybe because I'm at home with small kids and anything (other than them!) that requires my full attention usually results tears.  Sometimes theirs, sometimes mine!

First up my handspun Milo which I'll be binding off tonight. This was an adventure and I'm not sure about how it looks right now.  I chose to do a cable, but the handspun doesn't really lend itself to cables too well.  It will keep her warm anyway and thats the main thing - right?

Second in line is a Tiny Tea Leaves, for Tadhg, for school in blue. I've knit this pattern so many times now, its knitting itself. Last but not least I wrangled my way through the heel turns of both my socks.  I attempted this toe up two at a time, but I had to resort to separating them out for the turn, it just didn't work for this pattern (which is not meant to be two at a time I think). Sock knitters out there - how does this work? And have can you recommend a good toe up two at a time pattern for kids? They are both back on the same needle again and I'm off on the cuffs.


We're nearly finished  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.  I've also been finishing off How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran - and I bought I Quit Sugar yesterday.  I need to get in on this IQS bandwagon everyone's raving about!

Happy Knitting!
