Warm feet

In case you're wondering, I do enjoy crochet, but I'm finally getting into knitting. It might have something to do with the wonderful climate here in Scotland. Knitting actually contributes to keeping my lap warm. Knitting on the tropical east coast of South Africa just wasn't practical. What with humidity of 110 half the year, and it being far too warm to actually wear anything I'd made.

I have to admit that I've usually got about 3 or 4 projects on the go at any given moment. It's in case I get bored with my current project. I can then pick up something else and get on with that instead. I thought I'd share some photos of a recently completed project. A pair of merino wool Norwegian socks. Admittedly started a year ago, but worth it. I've already worn them over 5 times this winter and they really kept my toes cosy with my sheepskin boots. Ah ... bliss ... warm feet!

Well Hello All,

Welcome to my blog. I've been crafting for my whole adult life, doing one thing or another. From sewing my own clothes, cross-stitching cards, crocheting toys, to knitting socks. I want to use this blog as a place to record some of my projects, hopefully inspiring others to take up a craft so they too can be creative and have fun.

I won't make any promises I can't keep, so fair warning - I might not get to update this too often.
