Craft Porn

First off a little yarn porn.... Socks that Rock. This stuff deserves every inch of its reputation. Blissful to knit with.

Not a colour combo I would have picked out on a shelf but I am *loving* the way it is knitting up. Have done one sock already and about an inch of the second. Should serve as a reminder to think ahead to what colours will look like all merged together rather than judging them in skein form.

Now we have some ATC porn. When I got home last night I had post from all corners of the globe. 4 packages of ATCs not to mention my fave magazine.

Every time I get ATCs I am amazed with what people do. Makes me wonder what my paltry efforts are thought of.

I am still thoroughly into swapping on Swap bot and most recently completed my first ever dish/face cloth for a swap. I had always meant to do one but kept thinking they were a bit pathetic. Let me tell you - that opinion has been thoroughly kicked out the window. Look what I did in about an hour last night (my swap partner has a green and blue colour scheme on the theme of apples and chickens. Thought a chicken might be a bit beyond me!)...

It is just so cool! (modest? me?) The pattern is from knitting pattern central which is where I am heading just as soon as I finish typing this lot. I have been mucking about with soap making in my spare minutes and one of these with a handmade bar of soap as a xmas present? - yeah baby, I'm there.

In other new the second edition of the Proud to be Crafty Zine is shaping up nicely. Am having fun with fonts. Deadline for submissions is 12 Nov so email me at littlelixieathotmaildotcom if you have something you'd like to see in print.

Aha! Face cloth...come over to the darkside...... cool pattern too, ty for the link!

I'm in awe at all the crafts you manage to do lady, and still find time to look geeky on the tube, most impressive. I just about manage to knit.

Liking the Socks that Rock too, so many great yarns, so little time....

so where did the DTR come from?

I too am impressed by all the stuff you get done. Love the apple - though I cannot bring myself to knit warshcloths (to quote the curmudgeon) thta does look lovely.

Say, is that the yarn I sent you? It looks much better wound up in the cake. I can't wait to see the socks!

Your hot socks swap pal,
Patty

(by the way, I've changed blogs)

I should clarify a bit, when I said it looked better wound up I meant that the colors you usually don't care for don't seem to stand out as much as they did while in the skein. :-)
