2015 WIPocalypse - July Blue Moon Edition

Back again, but not a lot to show for it.  It's been a busy couple of weeks with the boss being off work, a funeral, Fibre East and something I can't talk about yet.

Fibre East is a yarn festival held near Ampthill, Bedfordshire.  After I started knitting last May, Fibre East was the first yarn festival I went to so I hadn't a clue what I was letting myself in for.  This year I went with two knitting friends and had a great time.  I was very good and only spent the cash I had taken with me, which was hard because I really wanted to buy all the pretty things.  And now I want to knit all the pretty things, but time is short.

Anyway, time for a progress report.  There has been so little progress on Baby Express since the last time you saw it that there was no point even taking a photo.

However I do have one finished toe up sock to show you and the beginning of the second.  I am going to use a different heel on this one in the hopes of getting a better result than I did with the first one.

And Hitchhiker now has 28 points to it.  There are now over 100 stitches to a row so progress is slower.  Basically I am now into the long hard slog part of it, but the colours are so lovely that I don't really care. 

Also I am now on a yarn diet until Yarndale at the end of September.  No more yarn until Skipton.  I went on Ravelry the other night and worked out how much yarn I have - nearly 39 miles worth!  I really do have to knit faster!!!

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day with the boss playing catch up after 2 weeks off, so I am going to love you and leave you, and may the frog stay well clear of your needles.


  1. Great knitting progress, and yay for lovely new yarn! Maybe you could show off your new treasures next week or so, I'm sure I'm not the only one to love a bit of window shopping ^_^
