Fettle Those Finishes: A Link Party


Hello, and welcome to Fettle Those Finishes!  

For those of you wondering what on earth 'fettle' means, it's one of those words which can mean different things. You can be in fine fettle (good health and feeling perky), you can fettle clay before firing (less of a dialect word, more of a technical one, that) and you can sort out/mend something or get it ready.  You might 'fettle that cupboard once and for all' (give it a good sort out), you might 'fettle the tension on that sewing machine' (fix it) or you might 'give it a fettle' (get it ready). For this, I'm using the 'sort out' definition as we're going to give our project list a good sort out and hopefully get some things crossed off. Flummoxed?  I do hope not!

As it doesn’t look as though the Finish Along is coming back any time soon, I thought I’d see if there was any interest in an informal and relaxed link up party to encourage us to finish some of the things (all of the things?!) on our lists (our long, long, oh-so-very-long lists) and make progress on others (and encourage each other while we do it), and here it is. This link up is for the year (unless, you know, we all race through our lists by the end of March *watches a pig fly overhead*) so I’ll leave it open until 17th February to give you chance to think about and assemble your list - it’s not something to rush into, is it?! 


The rules:

Be kind. Be encouraging. Be honest.* 

* Don’t put things on your list you’d finished before the year started, there’s no fun or honour in that. 

Your list can be as long or as short as you wish. Mine comprises a list (projects I’ve started, their status at the start of the year and the year they were started) and a waiting list (the things I’ve been meaning to start for years - blogger really wasn’t very obliging when it came to doing this bit of the list, which is somewhat of an understatement. I wonder if that’s a sign?!). The list is comprehensive and includes everything I’ve got under construction, the waiting list is not and it may change: some things may be removed, others added. It is not a list of everything I will make or intend to make this year (I fully intend to knit lots of socks but as they don’t tend to hang around unfinished, except as socks-in-waiting aka skeins/balls, they won’t make it onto the list), but yours can be if you wish. In short, it’s your list, compile and use it as you wish. 

There are no prizes, just the pride of whittling down your list to something which doesn’t keep you awake at night and the sense of achievement which comes from finishing something and crossing it off a list. And also the satisfaction which comes from making progress on something, whether it’ll be finished this year or not.


There’ll be a progress link up somewhere near the halfway point of the year, so in late June or, more likely, early July.



Now, who’s in? If you would like a button for your blog post, copy and paste the code below and paste it into your browser. The button should then magically appear, please shout if it doesn’t and I’ll see if I can help.

Mini Archie’s December Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog

Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something


Hello and Merry Christmas! I can’t quite believe it’s the final Furtle of the year already, can you? 

This month, to round off what has accidentally become a year of socks, I knitted yet more of them. I finished the pair I’d started last month:
Yarn is Opal Rainforest 17 (colour 11095 ‘Referee’)from Sock Yarn Shop

Made another pair:
Yarn is Opal Joy (colour 9984 ‘Cheers’)from Sock Yarn Shop

And another:
Yarn is Opal Schafpate (colour 7951 ‘Kim’) from Sock Yarn Shop

And another:
Yarn is Opal 25 Years of Opal (colour 11047 Dancing Jubilee)

And I’ve quilted three lines on ET (no picture, it looks just the same as it did last month unless you’re close enough (and care enough) to count the quilted lines), but now this year’s socks are finished, I’m going to not cast on any more   try very hard not to cast on any more  try not to cast on any more socks until ET is finished. 

I was looking back through this year’s blog posts (to count the socks made) and it’s noticeable that the sock knitting only took off once I’d finished piecing the low volume scrappy trip top and I was without a hand piecing project for the evenings. I didn’t get any further in my Sticky Prod Along aim to quilt Winterkist other than washing the fleece backing thirteen times (yes, that’s how many washes it took to get rid of the loose dye!) and coming up with a plan for the back and quilting as ET wasn’t as quick to quilt as expected. Once ET is quilted, I’m going to make Winterkist my main machine project and I’m going to start a new hand piecing project (yes, I have permission!). I think I need to revive/pay more attention to my Fettling List as, disgracefully, I haven’t finished any of those yet. Oh dear, it’s no wonder Mini Archie keeps tutting, is it? Still, at least I have warm feet…

You doesn’t have time to be admiring I in Tree, you has sewing to do. Chip chop!

Mini Archie’s November Furtle Around The Blogosphere


Archie The Wonder Dog

Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something

Hello! ET has led me on a merry dance this month (there was a very brief moment where I wondered whether I should just set fire to it, such was the feeling) but I think we’ve come to an understanding. More of that in a moment.

I finished the soft-as-a-cloud socks for my friend Trudi and they fit, which is always a bit of relief. Particularly with a sock yarn with such a different row gauge from my usual sock yarns. She wanted double length cuffs so she could fold them over, which is why they look so much longer than other cuffs.

Yarn is a 4ply alpaca, silk and cashmere from Coastal Colours

I made another pair, this time for me, and had a bit of a needle disaster mid round:

Yarn is seaglass tonal (high twist) from Mothy & The Squid

And started some for presents (I have four pairs to knit, two of which need to be finished by the end of the year)
Yarn is Opal Rainforest 17 colour way 11095 ‘Referee’

And ET and I made friends and agreed that hand quilting was the answer. Before we reached this agreement, I took it to a friend’s (after I’d unpicked all the lines, then pressed and starched and re pressed each side of each layer of each corner on my wobbly ironing board) and she helped me to pin the hell out of one corner, but when we turned it over to check the wrinkles wouldn’t happen again (we ran our finger along where the line would be quilted), we found that it was going to wrinkle, so my pinning/backing tension hadn’t been at fault last month). We spent the next few hours trying to come up with a different quilting plan which didn’t run along the bias of the front and backing (which is what we think might be causing the problem) and eventually found one we liked. I came home, marked out one corner and…it didn’t work. For some reason, I couldn’t get things to line up and be even right across. I marked out a few other plans and didn’t like them either. Then it hit me that hand quilting might be the answer. After spending quite a while tacking each corner (closer together than usual to help mitigate any residual shift), I did the first two lines and there weren’t  any wrinkles between them on the back. Hooray! I’ve now done six lines so am about a third of the way there on the first corner. I’ve had to let go of any expectation that ET will be finished by the end of the year (hand quilting through Warm&White in black thread on a black fabric isn’t the fastest way to hand quilt), but at least now I know it will be finished at some point, and not by being transformed into ash. 


(Any wrinkles are from it being in the hoop and are temporary.)


Mini Archie has been enjoying the autumn colours as well as bossing me around:

Mini Archie’s October Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog

Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something

Hello! It’s been a busy month and, for once, the busy hasn’t all been knitting. There has been some knitting, though. I finished the socks I’d started last month:
Yarn is one of the gobstopper range by Easy Knits which I bought in a destash
I knitted a pair for a friend:
Yarn is Purple Nimbus by Made By Penguins and the pattern is the 
soon-to-be released Chestnut Bark Socks by Mrs Moog

And started another pair for a different friend:
Yarn is an alpaca, silk and cashmere mix from Coastal Colours
And I quilted (and quilted and quilted) ET, under the watchful eye of Mini Archie (who soon moved once I pressed the foot pedal!)


But, although it looks fine on the front (just how I hoped, actually), I’m not happy with how the corners look on the back. I quilted three of them using the quilting bar on my walking foot and the third one had nineteen lines rather than eighteen so a tiny misalignment) had added up across the corner. I measured the gaps between the lines on the other two corners and some were spot on and others off (with hindsight, I should have used the quilting bar to quilt lines every 3” and then gone in between rather than quilting every 1.5” as the errors wouldn’t have multiplied quite as much) so I unpicked all three, unpinned the fourth, marked all the 3” and 6” lines using a chalk marker (which kept breaking) and then re pinned and re quilted them. When I turned it over, I saw there were drag marks between the lines, particularly between the longest ones. I unpicked the longest line in three corners and redid them (after polishing my extension table with Mr Sheen to reduce drag) but I’m still not happy. This is the worst corner:


I think that when I re pinned the corners after marking, I didn’t have the back under sufficient tension and now I’m going to have to quilt the dratted things for the third time. After all, what’s another few weeks when you’ve been making the thing since 2016?! 

Let’s just say Mini Archie isn’t going to let me out any time soon:
I will allow you a five minute break but then I wants to see that sharp unpicking Stick
back in your hand. Don’t sigh at I like that, you knows it will be worf it in the end *firm face*

Mini Archie’s September Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog
Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something

Hello! Fancy it being the end of September already! It’s almost time to start thinking about this year’s Sticky Prodalong *winces in anticipation* I must get the Winterkist top out of the cupboard and measure it - I’m thinking of fleece for the back in the hope I’ll have a cosy snuggling quilt for the settee. Just need to work out what to do quilting wise to see if that’s feasible. Anyway, that’s for next month. This month, I’ve been mainly knitting. Again. And sorting out the workroom - just a few things to sort and mini quilts to put on the wall (any good tips?) and I’ll be done, thank goodness. 

Where was I? Oh, yes. Socks. I finished the pair I started last month:


Yarn is Bewitched by Made By Penguins 

Finished another pair:
Yarn is Unicorn Rainbow by Made By Penguins

And got well on the way with another pair. It really is true what they say about stripy wool knitting up faster! 
Yarn is Gobstopper Be Proud by Easy Knits which I ‘acquired’ in a recent destash

And yes, if you’re wondering, my hand knit sock drawer does need an extension!

Needless to say, Mini Archie is keeping me busy:
Yes, it has beed a warm September. Yes, I is looking forward to it being jumper and dungas weather.
 You knows what else I is looking forward to?
You finishing faffing about in the workroom and getting back to quilting ET *stern face*

Mini Archie’s August Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog
Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something

Hello! It’ll come as no surprise that August has been a sock knitting month. However, the weather is showing signs of cooling down and I’m hoping my work room revamp I will be finished soon (yes, it’s still ongoing! I’ve had to return a table which wasn’t fit for purpose and am waiting for one to be made by a local company (the same place who did The Cupboard Of Possibilities)  and am hoping that might be ready soon and I can tackle the unpacking and arranging with gusto) so I might be quilting ET soon(ish) - I’d love it to be finished by the end of the year. Now, onto the socks!

I finished the socks I started last month:

Yarn is Lucky from Opal 

Then a quick nothing-to-match pair:
Yarn is Aqua Ice Cream by Made By Penguins 

Then two (very) bright mirrored pairs, I’m calling these my lollipop lady socks:
Both yarns are by Made By Penguins


When I knitted the second sock of the first pair, I somehow forgot to put the contrast heel in so decided that rather than pulling out back to the bottom of the leg, I’d do the same with the second pair and now I have mix and match pairs, which makes it look like I’ve knitted more socks than I have, I think:


And I’m well on my way with my current pair:
Yarn is Bewitched by Made By Penguins 

I doesn’t fink you has time to be hanging around, you has a work room to sort out.

Mini Archie’s July Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog
Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something

Hello! It will come as no surprise to hear that July has been a sock knitting month - it’s been far too hot to contemplate quilting E.T. Phones Home and as that is top of my list, it’s that or socks. So socks it has been. I finished off the pair I started last month:

Yarn is Pinkalicious by Made By Penguins bought in a lucky dip in, I think, 2019

I made another pair in a gorgeous self striping yarn which was a present from a lovely friend - the colours are that of the London Underground Tube map and I knitted one sock from the outside of the ball and one from the inside.
Yarn is Mind The Gap by Trailing Clouds

And I’m well on the way with my next pair
Yarn is Opal Lucky and has a silver sparkle running through it

Mini Archie has been keeping a close eye on me and is hopeful that his new ‘shelfs’ will be going up soon so we can properly unpack the workroom and get fettling that wip list!

It’s luffly and sunny up here. Maybes a ice cream would make it even nicerer? *hopeful face*

<p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://archiethewonderdog.blogspot.com/p/furtling.html"><img src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fJ7oo6tyMM0/XFF5HxcQW1I/AAAAAAAAEJU/BZnZPfse8k0BXwjt6KAOJIMwySjnfDHbQCLcBGAs/s200/textgram_1548790799.png" alt="Archie The Wonder Dog" /></a></p>


To link up, go to the link at the bottom of this page and click on 'link up' (it's a blue button) and then add your link (website URL), a title (this could be your blog name but could also be something interesting to draw people to it (keep it clean!) if you prefer), and your email. This last one doesn't appear on the link (I will have access to it - I won't use it unless there's a problem and I need to contact you) so don't worry that you're about to share your email address with the world (or the handful of people who find this link), you're not! The link will remain open until 17th August; if you're seeing this post after this date, I'm afraid you can't link up to the July Furtle, but you can link next month if you like. 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
