Pictures of my Dad's birthday socks -
Pictures of my hand woven, part hand dyed tea-towels, the close up is of the reverse of the towels. I hand dyed some Cottolin gold and wine and the neutral is the colour I bought it.
Now I am thinking about starting a couple of projects as I only have the Irish Hiking ones left.

I decided to update this blog when I had done afew things...........
Here are 2 pictures of the hand spun yarn blanket I finished knitting a couple of weeks back. I got the wool from ebay ages ago, but couldn't think of a suitable use for it until now! This close up shows all the different fibres, it is really heavy and warm, perfect for the coming winter evenings!
I also have completed one of the socks I have been knitting for my Dad's 60th Birthday later this month, I have been using Lorna's Laces yarn in the Black Pearl colourway. I have modified Wendy's generic top up sock pattern, and used this, unfortunately the colours have pooled but I'm sure he will like them anyway.
My church are having a craft fair so I thought I would make some stitch markers for them to sell, they are complete except for the split rings which I need to buy
I am now trying to finish my Dad's socks and the Irish Hiking Scarf and Hat before starting any new projects.
