A new project

Yes I know I said I wasn't going to cast on this yarn until I'd finished my colourwork cardigan but there was an emergency. Ok, not an emergency, a pressing need. Oh fine, it was a convenient excuse! I'm babysitting for my neighbour tonight because her husband is having a Significant Birthday and they're going out for a meal. I wanted to bring a simple project with me because knitting colourwork late at night is almost certainly going to end in a disaster


So I've cast on this beautiful yarn from Wharfedale Woolworks and I'm knitting my normal vanilla sock with a cable up the side like the Socks on a Plane pattern


I think these should be just perfect for some mindless knitting this evening and then after that I PROMISE to go back to the cardigan.

Oh and by the way, the lovely Kirsty has a 20% discount code running at the moment if you fancy adding some of her beautiful yarn to your stash ;-) I'm not on commission, I'm Cold Sheep-ing for a bit so trying to enable other people to buy yarn instead ;-)

Pop back tomorrow to see photos of my Mum's finished shawl. The shawl and scarf arrived at my parents' house yesterday so I don't have to worry about spoiling the surprise for them any more. I think they liked them :)


  1. I've always loved orange and it has quite a vintage feel as well for those of us old enough to remember the 70s.

    1. I'd never thought of it as having a vintage feel before but now that you've mentioned it I can see what you mean. It's not a colour I can wear really as it doesn't suit me but I figure it doesn't matter with socks :)

  2. That is a beautiful yarn, and you definitely have great reasons for starting another project....especially when you need a simple project :)

    1. I'm very good at coming up with reasons for starting new projects lol. It's lovely isn't it, I'm crossing my fingers for a little bit of pooling

    1. Thank you :) I'm worrying myself that I won't know what to do if the house burns down or something. A little bit irrational really lol

  4. No excuse needed, how could you NOT cast on that lovely yarn?


Thanks for visiting, I love comments :-)
