Lots of things have happened.
I went to Malvern Autumn Quit show, and bought more fabric! Super.

I'm doing some knitting, especially in the evening in front of the TV, when I'm too tired to sew. I taught myself to knit holding my thread in my left hand, so that I could be faster, and make more things.
So here is my latest production: a pair of socks for DD3.

 The thread was bought over a year ago, but things do happen eventually... It is"Bamboulene" by Cheval Blanc,  DK weight, 50% wool and 50% bamboo, knits with 3.5 mm size needles.
There was very little left at the end.
 I made them size 7/8 UK, with 4 times 12 stitches (48 stitches), short row heels and the leg measures 10.5cm before the heel.
I used this book to work out a pattern and it was very helpful.
You can find it here on Amazon (no affiliation).

Next I'm going to start a snood for DD3, it seems to be all the rage in the shops at the moment. Mine will be done in proper wool at least, blue and white.

Enjoy your sewing, or knitting.
