Explore Mince Pies, Hot Coffee and more!

The mince pies are the star of the show this afternoon. With hot coffee and sock knitting added I'm a happy girl. Yarn is from @rustyferretyarn and is the Doll 4ply in the Static colourway.  #sockknittersofinstagram #socktawk #sockyarn #sockknitting #sockknitters #toeupsocks #ilovesocks #toeupsocksrock #indiedyer #indieyarn #knitstagram #knitlove #knittersofig #igknitters #onmyneedles #weekendknitting #wip #instaknit #knitaddict #simplepleasures #seekmoments #stillswithstories #momentsofmine…

Yay! My next sock - Yewbarrow - is ready for testing. This is a toe-up sock with some cabled detailing and the sample is knit in @rustyferretyarn using the Doll Base colourway Static.  If you would like to test please DM me with your Ravelry name and email address.  I only need 4 to 5 testers for this and they must be able to provide clear finished photographs using a solid or slightly semi solid yarn. The deadline for this is 25th March - so plenty of time.  #sockknittersofinstagram…

There's nothing better than fresh yarn arriving in the post. I was a little low at missing out on Yarndale so I treated myself to some delicious @rustyferretyarn from the new @fluphshop website.  I have big plans for these two beauties. Static on the left and Idiot Proof on the right -both on the Doll 4ply base.  #sockknittersofinstagram #socktawk #sockyarn #sockknitting #sockknitters #toeupsocks #ilovesocks #handknitsocks #indieyarn #indiedyer #britishwool #igknitters #knitting #knitstagram…

After careful examination of various stalled WIPs for my husband I think I've identified the problem.  I never thought there could be such a thing as too much grey but I am now considering revising that statement.  When the item in question is a plain grey stocking stitch sweater with over 250 stitches on the needles there can most certainly be a thing as too much grey.  To rescue the thing from the bottom of the WIP basket and prevent it sinking back down I've resorted to leaving it in…

You might not see much of this WIP. A large plain 50" chest sweater in dark grey doesn't make for the most photogenic or fast moving project but DH has waited far too long..and patiently for his sweater. After much deliberation I opted for Rift by @brooklyntweed .  And yes as an experienced knitwear designer I totally know and appreciate the value of a good swatch. And no..I'm totally not using the sleeve as a swatch - nope - not even a little bit  #igknitters #knitting #onmyneedles…

That's 6 squares blocked and 2 more blocking. I was going to add in some more colours but I quite like the simplicity of these 3. I'll have to see how many more squares I can squeeze out of my stash.  #stashdash #stashdash2016 #minivividkal #vividblanket #blanketsquares #blocking #babyblanket #knitaddict #knittersofIG #knittersofinstagram #instaknit #instarav #onmyneedles #wip

For anyone who like me works in the NHS this coffee is for you.  It's going to be a very difficult week and I think we will need all the caffeine we can get.  I was lucky enough not to have to cancel my weekend plans but now I need to catch up with my fab colleagues and work out how we piece our service back together again this morning.  Onwards and upwards! Think I will treat myself to nice calm garter stitch cast on this evening though. Any suggestions for a non stress project that I can…
