Mini Archie’s March Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Furtle (v): to have a rummage or delve into the contents of something Hello! This month has been a month of a bit more sleeping (hooray!) but still lots of sock knitting. The socks I started in January have been finished: Here’s what I started with (plus Opal Navy Blue): Yarn is three different Regia leftovers plus a mini skein (top right) by Vicki Brown Designs   which was a present from a friend  And here’s how much was left: I’m quite happy with how much I managed to use in the making of the socks. Not as satisfied as if I’d used every last metre, but almost. I started another pair of scrappy socks using these leftovers, two of which are from a friend’s leftovers box: The orange yarn is ‘Rusting’ and the dark green is ‘Into The Forest’ and are both by  Mothy And The Squid As the green doesn’t have any nylon content, I just used it in the legs: it wouldn't wear very well on the heels or feet and I’m not spending all that time knitting socks only to be darning them a few months
