My 3rd Bonny– this time for my other sister in Hartlam Sutherland Lace. I just have the back to finish now.

I finished my first Brown Paper bag sock challenge pair of socks

The yarn was from Wendy at Yarn stash in a wonderful variegated yarn that was such fun to knit.
I did the rounded toe, fish lips kiss heel on 64 stitches.

The socks I am working on next are for The Geek
The yarn is from Stellar FibreWorks
I was asked about the pattern and I will write up some notes for a pattern

I am swatching with some Cowgirlblues DK for a collection I am going to be working on soon

Sally – Wooldiaries knitted Rachel her birthday socks in the yarn from Electric Carnation that I got her for her birthday. She used a double gusset heel which I am keen to try.

Rachel made me a beautiful pottery yarn bowl.

My lovely friend Uschi gave Rachel and I such lovely gifts all the way from Germany

I got Wolle-und-mehr Silky Merino
20% silk 80% wool 100g/ 400m in Campari Orange colourway
and
Merino Seide Lace ( Merino silk lace)
80% Merino, 20% silk 100g/700m in Zugspitze colourway which is the name of a mountain in Germany

Rachel got a sock yarn but it did not have a colourway. The bright colours suit her so well and we each got a lovely project bag that Uschi made for us

Uschi also send some hats and washcloths for the burns unit charity

My mom knitted Rachel some hats for the charity too
and we got a wonderful contribution from Fluffykira

My flower swap parcel was from Jennyvonsocks
The pen is already in use. I love the notebook size and have started writing a new pattern in it. The DK yarn in from Nurturing Fibres and Jenny made this wonderful fat quarter bag bag

Sally gave me some beautiful Neon Peach Madelintosh

I loved seeing all the Shibui yarn and the cheatsheet on how to mix and match all the different yarns

June’s knitting group that was so kind to Sally gave her some MadTosh Unicorn Tails for me. Thank you so much ladies, I love them!!

Thanks for watching and happy Knitting
