Mini Archie's August Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Image
Hello! I don't feel like I've managed much this month, but when I look at the pictures I've taken, I realise I've grafted the toes of eight socks (two of which were half knitted, and two which were started from scratch this month), made good progress on another pair, and hand pieced three LV blocks!  You'll notice that all of these can (and have!) been done while sitting on the settee watching telly (I've been catching up with 'Suits' from the beginning and have watched all of seasons one, two, and three. Unfortunately, the channel which was showing them has stopped at the end of season three so I need to keep an eye out for them starting season four.) and drinking tea.  Except when it's been too hot to drink tea, of course.  Roll on autumn! Here's what I've been making this month: Every time I crop photos of these blocks, they turn blurry - very frustrating!  Which is why there's a lot of floor in these pictures! The came

FAL Finish: Yet More Socks!

These pair of socks are my third Q3 FAL finish and are item 15 on my  Q3 2019 FAL list  - I will be linking up to the  FAL finishes party  when the time comes.  These needed the most work of the three pairs as, at the start of the quarter, I was halfway down the leg on one and at the start of the heel flap on the other.  I love those purple, lime, blue, and pink stripes! Here they are together, ready for Mam's sock drawer this winter! Mini Archie announced to the world when all the socks were finished: Thanks for popping in!

FAL Finish: More Socks!

My second finish this quarter is this pair of socks, which were fun to knit - I love Opal sock yarn!  These also just needed the toes grafting and the ends darning in and fifteen minutes in front of the telly saw them finished and ready for their photo: These are item 14 on my Q3 2019 FAL list  and I will be linking up to the FAL finishes party when the time comes. Mini Archie has been practising his 'Teacayking': I is good at it, isn't I? *modest face* Thanks for popping in!

FAL Finish: Socks

It's always nice to be able to record a finish nearer to the start of the quarter than the end, isn't it? This time I have three and I'm going to blog about them separately so they're ready to link up with the FAL finishes party when the time comes. My first finish is this pair of socks, which, at the start of the quarter, just needed the toe grafting and the ends darning in.  That's now done and I can proudly present my first Q3 finish! These are item 13 on my  Q3 2019 FAL list . My phone camera hates these socks and refuses to take a completely in-focus of them, no matter how many times I ask it... Mini Archie was on paw to help free the knitting needles: Thanks for popping in!
