I started these socks on the plane recently, Knit Picks self striping and Pink hand dyed yard from Chandlers in Edinburgh, I did a 2 x row dbl moss stitch on the leg and a 3 row 2 x colourway on the foot.
I've been watching knitting podcast where Andre from Andre Sue Knits was podcasting with Sue from Legacy Knits talking about their crochet blankets and using up their scrappy yarn, a lot of other podcasters have started a Cosy Memories Blanket which is made up of 2" mitred squares joining as you go, I did make a square but my OCD won't allow me too be frivolous with scrap yarn too add squares that may look too me like a Dog's Breakfast!..Don't get me wrong some of the blankets around are looking great but it's not for me and I've heard from some the same, but I am enjoying this crochet and I've started a little ritual of crocheting with my morning coffee, I had some lovely minis in my stash that are looking lovely, this way I can choose what yarn too add as I go....
I also discovered these two lovely ladies in a new podcast called ESPACE TRICOT, they both knit Beautiful Shawls Cowls and Hats check them out on YouTube....and Instagram.
Even though I was heavily jet lagged last Monday I made an effort too drive 2 suburbs too my post box as I knew these were waiting for me, I joined a mini skein month club for January from Amber of Makers Haven Podcast, they are really cute but I found the 10grams isn't enough too crochet 2 rows of the blanket so I join them together....also if you want too see a great Video on joining yarn into a knot that won't move look up VeryPink Knits on YouTube Stacey has Great Tutorials on Knitting & Crochet.
Hope you are having a Great Day with Knitting or Stitching in hand.
