Louise’s April Blog – Day 23 - House tidy and one finished sock
Hello, I did my weekly Monday morning big house tidy this morning. Oliver spends most of the weekend drawing, arranging things and making a big mess. I also managed to get two loads of washing done plus lots of tea preparation. Since Oliver got home he has messed up his bedroom already :-)
Opal Yarns We sell a wide range of Opal yarns and today Mam listed all the new solid colours we stock. Opal Uni is a 4 ply sock yarn made from 75% Wool and 25% polyamide. They are available in 100g balls at £6.30.
One finished sock I managed to finished knitting the Rose City Rollers socks. I had a little problem with the toe not because of the pattern, but because I had to save a lot of stitches when they fell off my needles. The pattern is excellent and made turning the heel very clear. I also used a smaller stitch count than my previous socks, cast on 56 on 2.25mm dpns.
Sorry it is not the best lighting in the photograph. Main yarn : Little French Meadow in Floo powder, Pink Yarn: Cascade Heritage in Tutu (I think it is the colour)
Thanks for reading,
