April Makes

Not exactly one of my most prolific months, but then I've either been staring at cherry blossom or in the UK for most of it.

Before I went I finished my name tag for Susan which I really hope she got and which I blogged about here. While away I managed two things. The first was a pair of Rise and Shine socks using a free pattern available here (Ravelry Link). The pattern is staggeringly simple to remember, even for someone like me who has no memory, and it was very satisfying to reach the end of each repeat before heading back the other way.

In fact I enjoyed it so much that having finished the main pair (for my sister) I had enough yarn left to do a baby pair for ickle Jasmine. Mother and baby socks - what every mother needs!

I also made a pin cushion for the EPP Early Summer Swap which needs to be sent by Monday. Must get on with that.

It has come out a little pouf-ier than desired as my stuffing was extremely springy. I incorporated some left over hexagons into the sides and then did a little blanket stitch to define the top and bottom.

I do adore variegated thread so used yellow for the bottom and green for the top. I am really happy with it so will be sending it off to the recipient toot sweet.
