Mini Archie’s February Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Image
Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something This month has been a knitting month: Mam decided she needed some new bed socks and wanted some knitting. I said there was no way I was knitting socks in 4ply just for her to wear in bed (I tried and failed to suggest she just kept her socks on from that day - she was worried about them going prematurely bobbly) so suggested she get double knitting yarn. Unfortunately, the shop she looked in only had one lot of patterned WYS essential dk so… …she bought three balls. I think you can imagine how boring socks five and six were to knit, but you’d be wrong, it was worse. (Thank goodness it was patterned yarn, plain yarn might have seen me off.) Mini Archie has a plan for the leftovers and it involves a pompom maker/cardboard rings *sighs* so if you have any tips on how to make perfectly round tiny pompoms, please shout (before he does)!
