I’m aware I’ve not blogged much recently. I blame the fine weather keeping me in the garden and also my upcoming wedding.
I try to complete a small wedding job everyday. Whether it is updating my guest list, answering an email or researching ‘mini-moon’ venues for a couple of nights away after the event. I find doing something everyday stops the panic rising and switches off those busy voices in my head thus allowing me to sleep!
However, every evening I do a little knitting or crochet.
Although I somehow felt a bit of a fraud it made a lovely change, working up a pair of socks in DK.
They were not without incident. After admitting to myself that my previous 2 pairs have been a little on the roomy side, I came down one size and cast on the number of stitches for a ‘large child’. All was going well until somehow I started the toe too soon.
On trying them on I found the heel disappearing under my foot. After much muttering I convinced myself that they would stretch, and left them out to block.
However last night, seeking perfection, I undid the toes and added another half inch. I used the brown section of the stripy yarn for both toes.
I’m glad I did.
The weather has turned cold again. This bank holiday weekend I’ll be doing a lot less of this.
Love, Lucie x
