Knitting and Yarn Catch Up

I've been getting a bit organised on the knitting front this last week or so.

I finally got around to felting my Satchel bag. Just got to get some buckles and then stitch it together. Before and after photos here for you.

From it's corner by the sofa I have retrieved my cabled hot water bottle cover. I had missed one of the cable rows and not realised before I got to the next cable row. I spent an interested afternoon frogging back the offending section, putting the cable bit in and then re-doing the the bit I had frogged back. Once rescued finishing the cover was very quick and I am well chuffed with the finished result. It feels lovely by my feet too.

My Twisted Olivia socks are coming on well, this picture is from a few days ago, the second sock is just past the heel now.

And then there is the yarn. I am a member of the Sock-a-Month group which I really enjoy. There is a monthly prize draw and much to my surprise I won the January draw. And here is my yarn and stitch markers.

And of course no update of yarn is complete without a Babylonglegs fix. This is my Blue Banana sock yarn.

I do love those socks! I can't wait to see what you do with your new sock yarn and how the satchel is made up.

By the way the cards your kids made for mother's day are sooooo cute.

What a lucky mummy you are to have such talented offspring.
