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*

Linking up to the September Furtle 

If you're linking up, please add a link (one per person, please) to your blog post, which could contain: a mosaic of all you've made in the month, something you've made/started/worked on, a goal which you'd like to achieve in the next month (and then in next month's post you can reflect on that goal and set yourself another one - I find this particularly handy if I'm in the midst of a big project and finding the making of hundreds of blocks to be interminable), anything crafty you'd like to share. This isn't just for sewing or quilting, but is for all crafts so if you knit, make lace, make clothes, do anything which could come under the heading of 'craft', then please link up. Please visit the link immediately before and after you and leave an encouraging comment, and more if you can manage it - we all know that comments create joy, so let's spread some around. Also, please treat all the linked posts and their authors with respect - I want this to be an inclusive space for all crafters and crafts and all are welcome. If you're not sure if you're welcome or you belong, you do - this is by no means a closed space and if you want to join, then you are most welcome. If you need help linking up, please leave a comment and I will do my best to help. Please add the Furtling button to your blog post: copy the code below and paste it into your blog post - it should then magically appear when you publish your blog post (I'll do my best to help if you have any problems) and it will help people find the Furtling page with all the details of the link up.

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 October; if you're seeing this post after this date, I'm afraid you can't link up to the September Furtle, but you can link next month if you like.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. Love your socks. Its interesting how the pooling of the yarn makes each sock look different although using the same yarn. Love the colours of the top socks, really autumnal.

  2. Ooooh, such pretty socks!!! Love the Unicorn ones. Looking forward to joining you with padding for the Sticky Prod Along this year!!! Thank you so much for continuing to host these monthly catch-ups and the prodding.
