little bobbins knits - episode thirty four

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch over the last week, to the new members of the Ravelry group, to the lovely people who have subscribed on YouTube and the hugest thank you to those of you who are returning to the podcast, it really means such a lot.

This week I have some works in progress to show you - one of which has unleashed a little addiction to bead knitting! I have two finished objects, some spinning and I have some very lovely things to show you.

Works in Progress

Sock Scraps Blanket - I have added a few squares but will be putting my blanket away for a bit while I work on some other projects.



Vanilla Socks in Misti Alpaca Hand Painted Sock yarn in the Miriam colourway with a contrast heel in a mini skein from The Wool Barn - this project is living in my Chicken Boots bag
I explained a little about how I put in my contrast heel - thank you for the question Okielynn.
I have Bryspun sock blockers and I got mine from Loop


Come What May by Susan B. Anderson in Kettle Yarn Co. Islington in the Blighty colour way - this is living in my lovely bag from Isabelle of the Fluffy Fibers podcast
I am adding beads to my shawl which I got from Bead Stampede. I have also been recommended Crystals and Ice and GJ Beads.
Here is a link to the fantastic tutorial from Kristin of the Yarngasm podcast just in case you haven't seen it yet.


Newsom Cardi by Bristol Ivy in Rowan Felted Tweed in the Clay colour way. I am knitting this for the  #purposefulstashalong



Finished Objects

Hardy Socks in Regia 4 ply Tweed



Laceweight Pebble Beach by Helen Stewart in The Uncommon Thread Heavenly Lace in the Salty Air colour way



Spinning

I have finished the Felt Studio UK Superwash Merino and Nylon with Sparkle braid - it will hopefully become socks soon.



I also spun a braid of Dolly Mixture from Spin City UK



Lovely Things

I received a package of lovely minis and the most delicious smelling tea from Laura who has the wonderful The Corner of Knit and Tea podcast - thank you Laura



I also received  a wonderful handmade bag and keyring from Sam of the lovely Betsy Makes blog along with some yummy treats for Bobbin and I - thank you Sam



I bought a bag of sparkly fibre from The Fluffatorium, this is the Glittery Unicorn blend



I also bought some beautiful skeins of yarn from Felt Fusion, London House Yarns and Baerenwolle
