Between projects

Between projects I have pulled out the hook for a little crochet and made some dishcloths. Since I made some dishcloths a couple of years ago we haven't used anything else. They are great for doing the dishes and wash well for alot of use.
I have cast on some socks for Laura to keep my hand busy. The wintery weather has hit and the girls love wooly socks for keeping their toes warm.
Lastly a picture from yesterday of Jay and I at one of our favourite local spots. Easy to see why we live here isn't it?

Imogens Socks

I finished off Immy's socks, BUT....... ran out of yarn with the toe for the 2nd sock! Ggrr! I am too lazy to go back and frog the 1st to make them slightly shorter, or, to say do the rib and toe in a solid. I just wish I had done that in the fiirst place, LOL! I used a similar yarn and imogen is wearing them quite hapily with toasty toes.
I have to felt my basket but keep procrastinating on that. I can't make up my mind on my next project. I am also on a ban from buying yarn while we try to sort out finances so have to work with my stash.................................. So think I will do a couple of dishcloths while I make up my mind.


We are the proud owners of 6 lovely little chicks. Introducing Sophie, Ginger, Cyndy, Alice, Betty and Tallulah! The girls are absolutely loving them. Jay has made them a home out the back for when they are bigger. We are keeping them inside, where its nice and warm for the time being.
