    A Summary of Things

    All it I takes is a quick look at my blog timeline to see that other than the odd knitting project, I’ve not really been writing a whole lot. Why? Well, mostly because I’ve been too damn tired. I had very limited mental and physical energy to put towards anything …

    Stripey Sock Love

    I’ve been on a bit of a sock kick lately, and have been putting my stash of Scheepjes Invicta Extra and Invicta Colour to good use.  My favourite so far are these striped socks!  If you can knit socks this is super easy.  Not a pattern as such, as we …
