This week....

There has been lots of this ( I'm actually a bit further on than this with my big quilt but it's been too gloomy to photograph ) The stash is oficially being busted !

This little pot holder is a present for my friend's Birthday, she has two little dogs that are very similar to these ones, Esme and Denzil.

I even managed to make a pocket in the back : )

And as I am officially hooked on knitting socks this is the start of the second pair but with the right size needles. This wool is beautiful and it's super wash so I can actually use the socks I make yay.

Now I must away and prepare for a small persons sixth birthday.

Have a wonderful week,

  1. Ooooh that sock yarn sounds (and looks) like just the thing I need. My socks are made from cashmerino 4 ply and will only cope with being worn as bed socks.

    I realise now that my last comment to you sounded very rude. I was trying to convey that I was sad I had missed the post as I totally loved those little pot stands. It was my round abouts way of complimenting you! I should have been more on the ball.

    Your hexy quilt looks suuuuuuuuuper. Very neat. Lovely fabric choices too.


    Your ba

  2. I have a long-standing ambition to knit socks as the yarns as so lovely. If only I could find the time.

  3. Love love love the pot holder! those pups are fab and I love the leafy print - I've got a scrap of it and should know what it is, but I don't!

  4. Beautiful makes Emma, love the pocket in the pot holder, great idea..........your socks are looking great too.
