Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, August’s block has been finished( on time!), and on Monday I will be getting the next square to stitch, and fairy tale to either discover for the first time or get re-acquainted with. So, what was this month’s fairy tale? It was (well done fallfromgrace) The Town Musicians of Bremen (random link from the internet to the story). Next month’s fairy tale will be mentioned next week 🙂

So, I’ve decided to spend the rest of the month stitching my other SAL, the Stained Glass, so that by the end of the year I won’t be too far behind! I got quite a lot done really, which I’m very happy about, and the rest of this weekend might (fingers crossed) see me finish the page, which would be amazing!


I’ve had a friend here this week (hence the late post!), and so I haven’t done anything with Christmas presents (too much concentration would be needed to keep count of the stitches). Rather, I have been working on a sock, and I finished it! I’m very please with myself, and I now have 8 pairs of socks to wear 🙂


And just to stop this post getting boring, my spinning housemate has given me some yarn! (It doesn’t count as stash if you didn’t buy it ;))

There’s 100 grams of hand-spun sock yarn (~375 yards) so this will be turned into socks


There’s also 50 grams of possum sock yarn, which is certainly not enough for socks, even with contrasting toes and heels! So instead, I think it is going to have to be contrasting heels and toes! (Really, who just buys 50 grams of sock yarn? Certainly not sock knitters!)
