After rather a long absence we are back. we have internet and so this episode is a bit of a catch up with our life.


– 2 hats for my brother in law, one in the Cape Point hat and one in a new design called Mike 2.0. I used Cascade Heritage and Drops Delight Yarns

– Pink and purple socks are finally finished.

– Pink smaller version of the Mike 2.0 for my niece.


– I tried for knit the Find Your Fade shawl on the plane but I just kept messing up the lace bit.

– Using the yarn to knit a So Faded sweater instead
Yarn from the very talented artist Miss la Motte

I am hoping to have enough for the shawl too after I finish the sweater.

– Making a cowl for my sister using [Eco Fusion](yarn)

– Cast on socks using the Opal Sally yarn that I got for [WoolDiaries](/people/WoolDiaries) and me

– working on Rachel’s Kiddy Vertebrae pattern I need to get a grey yarn to do all the ribbing and the front band.

– Rachel is still working on my orange socks and has done some spinning

I will run through all the prizes next time, but new to the list is a set of yarn Fatema (Knitknacker on Ravelry) sent me when she was in the UK it is dyed by My yarn story Co

**Birthday Month**
My first gift for turning 40 is from my amazing friend [WoolDiaries](/people/WoolDiaries), she got me such a beautiful sock yarn blank which I am going to cast on, on my birthday. It is from Yorkshire Dale Yarn
