Sneak Preview



My Ravenclaw sock yarn has arrived! It's been wound into balls and is ready to be cast on this evening and I'll be glad to put my feet up as they ache today. We have discovered lots of places within a short distance of home for a walk each day. Yesterday we walked around Hartlepool Marina (but I forgot the camera). Today we waked along what used to be the railway line at Wynyard Woodland Park.





I'm trying to explore other creative outlets in addition to knitting. I had a go at making ATCs. I'm a bit anxious about showing them or daring to swap them, but I've signed up for a swapbot swap with a newspaper background theme.



The article I picked was about deforestation, so I thought I'd add some recycled paper and an indian ink tree to each one. It's my first attempt.

I am beside myself with joy over the sock yarn. How beautiful! I'm still mulling over patterns for yours. ;)

Love your ATCs. I had never heard of them (or the little books, either) until I read your blog.

I just received an email from Good Kharma Bunny's husband Simon. In case you had not checked her blog this week, it seems that Alice passed away on Sunday. I can't imagine what the family is going through right now, but I thought I would try to put the word out into the blogging world that Alice loved so much so that we can send our thoughts and prayers to her husband and children in this really tough time.

I don't know why my blog wouldn't let you leave a comment! I've tweaked a couple of things, and maybe it will work better now. I'm so glad you like the yarn!
