Starflower Phone Sock


Firstly I have to admit that I haven't worked on either pairs of socks because my crafty time has been largely taken up with these two delightful projects. 

Stained Glass Scarf

I am using the pattern Spectra by Stephen West - available to buy on Ravelry. I thought I might get bored knitting wedge after wedge, but the colour changes keep you interested. I am loving how it looks so far:)

Odds and Ends Needle Case

 For ages now I have been on the look out for a new knitting needle case but nothing has really grabbed my attention, so I thought I'd make one. Inspired by the lovely projects on Attic 24 and Lucy's How to Hexagon tutorial, I decided to use up all of my odds and ends to make a needle case. I plan to line it with tea towels and actually get my sewing machine out to create the little pockets for the needles.

Here is my bag of odds and ends - just old bits of DK acrylic from toy making and free bits of yarn from Let's Knit magazine. 

The only pattern I'm using for this is that each hexagon must have one colour matching to one colour in one of the adjacent hexagons and all hexagons are finished in white. I'm using Lucy's (Attic  24) join as you go method.

Starflower Phone Sock

I put this together in an afternoon, again using odds ends. 
The instructions are here.

Well that's me up to date - I hope everyone copes OK with the cold weather about to hit us in the UK  - stay warm and crafty.

I really appreciate it if you can take time to comment - I love to read other people's thoughts and ideas.
Take care x
