Lou's socks


Socks are flying off the knitting needles here! Mr F, Sian then me are in the sock queue. I'm quite enjoying knitting socks for the family. 


Lou loves his socks. He was so excited. 
When I was knitting them, Lou wanted me to knit them while he was wearing them. I sewed the ends in this morning and they were on his feet with a beaming smile.

The yarn is Moda Vera Noir that I got on sale for $2.50 a few years ago. It's been sitting in my stash for a while now with rest my sock yarn! There was plenty left on the skein so I'll get a few pairs knitted up for the boys.

Hello Possum!


Finally, I finished a second pair of socks!
These socks took longer to knit due to the fact I don't seem to enjoy knitting with just one colour. But Katie finally got her socks and she "likes them very much." I like them too.

They are made with Naturally Waikiwi 4ply yarn. It has possum fur, alpaca, merino and nylon. 


Here's a picture drawn by Katie. I didn't make any art work for the Summer of Color last week as we have all been sick, and the week flew by. I got over a head cold to come down with a flu!

The Summer of Color

The Summer of Color, week 3, hosted by Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle.

This week's colours are lavender, grey and plum!


Here's my picture for this week. I used silver paint (it was a bit gluggy) for the grey, Liquitex deep violet ink for the plum colour and mixed some acrylic paint for the lavender!

I'm fighting a head cold today so my picture is painted a bit roughly. If I didn't do it today, I wouldn't have got it done! I made up this pattern painted on a bit of off cut wood like I did last week. The off cut of wood measures just under 3 inches by 4 inches. 

Thanks to everyone who stopped and left lovely feedback comments :) It is nice to see everyone leaving comments on each others blogs.
