Mini Archie’s June Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog

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

Hello! This month I have some actual finishes! My elbow is starting to feel better (still problematic but I’ve been able to knit, hooray!) and just this week I’ve started physio so I’m hoping to see/feel improvements in my arm by the next appointment at the end of July.

First up is this pair of socks which has been a long time in the knitting: 

Yarn is Fireworks by Must Stash, a present from a lovely friend

And I’ve finished the stripy top I was almost finished last month. Turns out I wasn’t as almost finished as I thought as I hemmed it and it was horribly fluted (and I mean horribly) so after a lot of unpicking, I added a band instead. As it turns out, this was a good thing as I love how it looks and I think it would have been too short without it, which is quite something given that I added 5” to the length! 
Pattern is Lou Box top by Sew DIY 

I’ve made some more adjustments to the pattern and got some jersey to make more (mostly stripes but with a couple of prints thrown in). I’m currently washing and drying them and need to iron at least one so I can get making the next as this one has barely been off my back!

As ever, Mini Archie has been prodding me into action:
I has time to smell the roses. You doesn’t. Back inside and get cracking *stern face*

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

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
