Under the willow tree I will wait for you to come back to me

Another weekend over, some more vegetables planted and another sock finished. Please allow me to show you sock #1 of the ankle socks. The heel is a little strange (it's an after-thought kind of heel) and I'll be doing a proper short row heel next time I make a pair, but this sock is so, so comfortable to wear.

And then I got a little bored with the Sullivans, and that gorgeous rosy stuff from Kattwings grabbed me by the throat. Not 3 minutes after I sewed in the ends of the green sock, I was crocheting the ribbed band for another pair of ankle socks. The ribbing continued through this afternoon's delightful SnB in Civic and all the way through Australian Idol. Currently I'm on to the heel, but earlier this evening I was here:

The viburnum's flowers are amazing

And just because my garden is so stunning at the moment that I can't believe my good fortune, here's my crabapple tree. With blossom. And bee.

Tomorrow I hope to show you that this "quiltingmick" persona isn't just for shits and giggles. I am a quilter first and foremost. It seems though that I am eight months behind in my homework for a class and I have a crapload of homework to do. God knows how that happened, but I suspect a sudden unexpected love affair with crochet happened around May.

Photographic evidence of completed homework will follow. Yes. Yes it will.


  1. The colours in the Sullivan's yarn are lovely, though. And Katt's colours are so vibrant!

    Lucky you to have a snow-ball bush (probably has a proper name) and a crab apple. My crab apple is in full leaf now - narry a bloom in sight.

  2. What a fantastic sock! Well done!!

    Your garden is looking so beautiful :D

    Thanks for your card order, too, I'll pop them in the mail today!

  3. I love your crochet socks. Such an inspiration. And your garden, even more so!
