A few of our favourite things: 25th October 2015


Welcome to this week’s edition of our favourite things…

We’ve all been knitting away furiously on our #Socktober goals as we edge towards the end of the month (on a related note – how is it November next weekend?!).  Our featured picture this week is Hannah’s finished pair of matching superb stripy socks – meaning she has achieved her #Socktober goals – you go girl!

Sheila is powering through several projects, always with a sock on the go though – she has tried the fish lips kiss heel and moved on to the eye of partridge heel for her next pair.

Kate has finished the prototype of the grippy yoga socks and finished the Simple Skyp socks she was working on.  She had forgotten when she set her #Socktober goals that her 3mm dpns were in use on the first sleeve of her Still Light tunic, so she had to do some serious sleeve knitting to get them freed up for the second Kalajoki.  Never not having a sock on the needles, however, she’s trying out some Sirdar Heart and Sole in another pair of Simple Skyp socks and loves the beautiful pastel stripes of the Hello Cheeky colour way.  She’s not sure whether the Kalajoki will be finished before the end of the month, but she’s going to give it a good go.

In other news, we’ve just finished our last learn to knit course at the fabulous Whole Foods in Cheltenham for 2015– if you’ve decided you want to join us on our next course stay tuned as dates will be announced here very soon for the first half of 2016.  If you want to know before everyone else, you can sign up for our mailing list here 🙂

Meanwhile, over on Twitter…

And this was our favourite Pin of the week, because of the beautiful festive colours.
