Week 33 and 34 Socks, socks and a few more things to report....



I found ANOTHER crochet sock book for the bargain price of £2.50, so I just had to have it.  The great thing about it was that it had a few patterns in DK, so that was a bonus as I have been working in the norm of 4ply recently.

I decided to try out 100% cotton as I had some in my stash


And this is what happened!

Another pair I made were in 4ply in this lovely rainbow yarn


Aren't they just super snazzy!


Ah! here I am in class, showing off my new DK 100% cotton socks


I also decided to make another "Loren" Jumper in Red this time, which I work on in front of the TV at night as it's an easy no look type pattern


And now for some class news.....

I know, I know I am supposed to be taking some time off & catching up on commissions & my own work (as per the socks etc. above)

 But I was in demand!


This beautiful blanket is by the totally addicted "Dorset Finca" who is also addicted to Attic24
I can't blame her as Lucy is crochet amazing!

And here's another addict - a cushion addict







I have also had a bit of a classroom makeover this last week - I bought a table cloth to lighten up the room & I have a new wool stash thanks to Lemonade Yarns


It looks brighter


And well stocked!


Ahhhhh more rainbow socks!


Thank goodness it's nearly sock weather again

I also made over my Crochet Class sign that I hang on my gate when I know a new hooker is arriving


What do you think?
