Let the holidays begin!

Just a quick post to let you know I arrived in Noosaville yesterday for three weeks of relaxation, knitting, re-connecting with friends and just doing my own thing.

It’s always a big day packing the car and then the two hour drive interspersed with a coffee stop along the way.

Unpacked the car and then took off to do some grocery shopping, picked up a local paper and then back home for a late lunch of sourdough bread with olives, some dip and a glass of red wine. Delish!

Lunch Noosaville 10-7-15While reading the local paper I came across this little notice.

Noosa News Sheep Thrills article 10-7-15Needless to say I’ll be joining the ladies for social knitting this Thursday! Can’t wait.

When setting up my laptop I realised I’d left my wireless mouse at home. Grrr! I don’t like using the finger pad as it just seems to take me longer to do anything (hence the length of this post). I’ll have to pick up a cheap wireless mouse next time I’m near a computer store.

I’m meeting one of my friends this morning for a walk along the river front and then off for a well deserved coffee.

Until next time…

Swirl E. Socks – Pair # 37

Since making my Dunedin Happy Feet Socks I’ve been in a sock knitting mood and have not long finished these socks called Swirl E.

Swirly E Socks Blue 03They’re a cuff down sock knitted on five dpns. The pattern is so easy and does not overpower the striping effect of the yarn.

Swirly E Socks Blue 05I must say out of all the beautiful sock yarns on the market today, you can’t really go past Patons Patonyle. It has such a wonderful stretch to it and feels lovely in your hands.

Patons Patonyle Sock Yarn BlueSwirly E Socks Blue 06I don’t often knit too much in blue but this yarn has been in my stash for quite a while so I thought I’d actually use it!. The patterning looks lovely and I even managed to get both socks almost identical!

Swirly E Socks Blue 02This pattern is by Susie White who’s known as prairiegirl on Ravelry. It’s a free pattern on Ravelry too.

Swirly E Socks Blue 07Another successful knitting project done and dusted. They’re very comfy too. I wore them last weekend 🙂

Until next time…
