Afternoon Tea socks and EYF and all the amazing things

Well then. Fell off the blogging planet for a little while there, while simultaneously in the real world experiencing SO MUCH fibre and crafting-relating amazingness that now I’m in front of the computer I hardly know where to start. Hello though! How’re you?  Good start to 2019 so far? Sooo – let’s kick off with…

Once upon a sock in November 2018 – yikes!

Yikes for more than one reason, too. Firstly, how on earth is it November already? Secondly, I’ve not blogged for a while and I have MISSED you guys! And thirdly I don’t have all that much sock progress to show you, though I do have some little bits and pieces of sock-related news. First off,…

Finished project – Swirls and Stripes socks

Do you remember a few months ago I had no socks on the needles, so started playing with mini-gradient sets based on leftovers in my sock stash instead? These socks are the end result! ETA: pattern is now live on Ravelry! I had ambitions to create some lacy or patterned (not colourwork) striped socks using…

Finished project – Retro dream socks

ETA: Pattern’s now live! In anticipation of the pattern launch in the next two weeks (IT’S COMING GUYS, I ACTUALLY CAN’T WAIT) I thought it was about time that I shared some pics and thoughts about a pair of socks which genuinely would not let me sleep. These socks were inspired by colour, which I…

Once upon a sock in June 18 – actually all about socks

Hey lovely readers, I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you a bit. Happily today is the first Thursday of the month, which means I owe you a sock update – and I have LOTS to show you because it’s been all socks, all the time round here lately. First off, for those who missed my last…

PATTERN: Arthur to Ben socks

I am so happy to let you know that you can now knit my helical socks pattern – henceforth known as the Arthur to Ben socks! You can buy the pattern on Ravelry right here. These were started as part of my trip to this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival (near Arthur’s Seat), and finished back…

Once upon a sock in May 18 – finding my fair-isle way

The felinity fair-isle socks (I need a much better name than that!) are moving along pretty nicely. Sock one is in the bag*, and sock two’s past the heel. I’ve worked out how to move the jog to the other side for the leg, and am just thinking about how to handle it in the…

Once upon a sock in April 18 – rainbow dreams

Hello, sock-knitters and other interested parties. How’re you? The sun is out today in London and it is glorious. It is also that time of the month where I owe you all a sock update. Reporting on progress will be short but sweet because look! I have finished my latest helical socks. But oh! I…

Finished project(s) – all the sample shorties (ankle socks)

Hooray! The new Travelknitter colourway is out in the public domain and now you can all see that it is a doozy! Isn’t it gorgeous? The colourway is called Hogmanay and Larissa has developed it especially for this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival. But the really good news is that she’s adding it to her stable…

Once upon a sock in March 18 – sooo many ankle socks

I have been knitting my little socks off this month (DID YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE, KIDS) – once the Borage socks were done it has all been about getting those two pairs of ankle socks knitted up as samples in time for Travelknitter to take to Edinburgh later this month. And… I am…

Never not socking

You GUYS, there have been some very exciting sock developments chez felinity in the last week. Firstly, I’ve finished the Borage socks (proper post to come). This is a pair where I’m not entirely sure if I love them, now that they’re done, but they are certainly soft and comfortable. And then, an intriguing parcel…
