Disaster Averted

Just after I wrote my last blog I spilled a drink on to my laptop. Much sadness followed and I vowed never to drink or have drinks near a computer again. Luckily, after a week of drying out, it appears to be ok - but I am backing up A LOT just in case!

I have a new pattern out: Little Ice Age Socks


From the pattern page: The Little Ice Age, from the 16th to the 19th centuries, wasn’t cold enough to be a true ice age but I bet that was little comfort to the people living in it! The last few winters have seemed particularly harsh and once the novelty of the first snow has worn off, the cold seems to last forever. What I love about cold weather is wearing hand knits, as many as is humanly possible but most of all I love wearing hand knit socks. These socks have colourwork and cables and are perfect to wear while you are snuggled up in front of the fire!

These were knitted in June and I had to convince my mum to light her fire for the photo shoot but I like the way they came out so it was worth being a bit hot and sweaty for an afternoon!



These socks look a bit festive in these colours - you could of course knit them in any colours you like, but I love Christmas socks and these will be on my feet on the 25th December!

These are the first of 4 sock patterns I've got coming out this month - which is handy since it's SOCKtober.....


  1. you keep tempting me to knit socks, i love these and want to knit the green version, you will have to sell me all the wool i need at FF11 x

  2. What fun! I pinned them on my Pinterest board.
