My exchange gift is finished.

I finished it all yesterday so quite pleased with myself as I am ahead of the deadline. The bag that I eventually made didn't need felting as it is a perfect size to go over your arm so I left it as it was. It seems to have been popular around this house both daughters have made a play for it and Elenya has put an order in for one of her own. I just hope I can remember how to do it. It may require another trip to coldspring mill as I am out of the relevant yarn. There is a postal strike here today so, unfortunately it wont be leaving here until monday. Hopefully it will arrive with it's new owner by the end of next week.
My needles haven't rested I have cast on the back for Dandelion from Rowan 41 on wednesday evening and am half way up the back. It is in a colour called Diana which I have had in my stash for about 7 years. I bought it to make something for the eldest daughter when she was little and then decided I didn't really love the colour. However it is a perfect match for a summer skirt that I am making so I shall try and finish them in time for the glorious summer weather that we are definately due.


  1. Oh dear, I am so sorry to read about your recent trauma, I do hope you are all getting over it, what a terrible thing to happen.

    The socks and bag are gorgeous, your exchangee will be delighted I am sure.

    Thanks for your comment on my finished socks, you are right about the yarn spoiling one, I have ordered some more of the same and I guess I am now an official sock snob!

  2. Those socks are beautiful!! The bag is great as well & I can quite understand why you daughter wants one as I'm sure mine would as well.

  3. Socks turned out lovely, I am sure they will be treasured. I was knitting for winter, as my recipient said she liked those fashions best. I think there will be a lot of socks this year in the exchange.

  4. It is a very funny book Arianwen and yes, I am afraid I thought of my dad too!

  5. Your finished socks and bag are lovely! :0)

  6. The socks, bag and chocolates made my day!

    They have been taken to the knitting group tonight and shown off to great admiration.

    I have to say that the socks are not going on my feet until I've had a pedicure - I'm not risking spoiling them!!

    many many thanks for such a wonderful treat!

  7. the socks and bag are just gorgeous. I'll bet that Yvonne adores them, they suit her to a tee!
