Vix Knits… and crochets and sews…

My adventures in the wonderful world of arts and crafts

SO2017 – February

on February 24, 2017

I’m at it again and loving it! Socks are just sooo satisfying – quick to knit, pretty, useful

Some say they’re pointless because they’re never seen but I say pooh pooh (also, I have a baby and baby groups tend to be shoes off affairs!)

Anyway, here are my February lovelies

YinYang Kitty Socks

Aren’t they fun? I don’t think the variegated yarn is the best for these but I needed to use it because I love it so much 

In fact, I’m still sorely tempted to frog the crochet socks made from this and knit the yarn into something nicer

In other news, work on my lovely lace shawl has stalled because it’s too too fiddly and sloooow. But I’ve already got another pattern lined up for after I finish my other current WIP – a lovely cardi in hand dyed 4ply. 

Th ose are both knitting (hence the one at a time approach) but I’ve also got some crochet projects waiting to be swatched and started

But for now, I’m trapped under a feeding, sleeping baby with no crafts within reach so I guess I’ll read for a while…

      They’re from a free pattern on Ravelry, the colour work takes a bit of thinking about but I love them. Good for scraps too coz you only need one socks worth of each yarn 🙂
