Another yarn that does what it says on the tin. This skein of loveliness arrived at my flat on Monday. It’s a huge skein and is really squishy. The colour is gorgeous too. I must try dyeing my own semi-solids.


The artist’s palette also arrived. The colourway doesn’t have a name, just a number. I think I’ll call it spring fog 🙂


The smooshy will almost definitley be viper pilots, but I’m still not sure quite what the green yarn will be. I have a half-formed sock pattern rattling around in my brain based on 2×2 rib. I might use it for that.

Last night I got my act together and finished Mr M’s socks which I knitted while on holiday. I had to first un-do the regular cast off which I had done on the plane (I didn’t think I’d be allowed a metal yarn needle) and then do a sewn cast off. He wore them this morning. I’ll take a photo when he’s here and can model them. I got my red/pink/orange socks to an ok length and then scoured the internet for a sewn 2×2 rib cast off. I found this tutorial with piccies and I’m fairly happy with how it turned out.

I did a bit of dyeing last weekend – the first lot since I’ve been back. I’m quite happy with it, particularly with the yarn.




All apart from the middle one went in to my etsy shop.



  1. Niiiiice sock yarn! Is that Vino Veritas? I like that shade but have still not knitted with it. Mmm, Smooshy…
