I'm waiting for these socks to be finished, so I can start crocheting something new (and continue ignoring my WIP pile).

Socks in progress

I'm waiting to find the perfect pattern in my Kaffe Fassett books so I can use this glorious pile of KF fat quarters I bought years ago. This is my latest Kaffe book, which arrived last week courtesy of Hyena in Petticoats. It's a wet and gloomy day here, but the cover of the book makes it seem almost sunny.

I'm waiting to think how best to deal with this sock yarn, hand dyed by (again) the lovely Hyena in Petticoats. It's the colour of the lichen on the old roof tiles of the inner north where I live, and I think a very nice pattern is in order.

On Wednesday morning I'll be waiting for an airplane to fly me away, just for the day. It's such an extravagance, but I still haven't rewarded myself for surviving through the busy times at work. I always meant to get a pedicure, so I think this little trip will be a very nice (albeit much more expensive) substitute.


  1. Thanks so much for your compliments Michelle!

    I can't wait to see what you make with your Kaffe Fasset fabrics - and I'll keep an eye out for some knitting, too!

    Thanks again for supporting my little shop,

  2. Mmmmmm, another KF book for me to look out for - just wonderful. I have some KF fat quarters day I will attempt a quilt (or something...)

    Lovely stuff!

  3. I would be boarding the plane and wafting my feet around hintfully if I were you. Have a lovely day-soiree...

  4. I just love that sock yarn....and those kaffe fat quarters, too!

  5. Hey I thought I recognized that writing, Your socks are amazing!! You'll love Leahs wool, she's my sister and her wool is magic. If I'm right I may have given her that book, Hilarious!! She's been sprung!!

  6. oh yes - it is so hard to have to wait for the next project to begin isn't it?

  7. Lichen! Yes! How very appropriate!

  8. Yes, yes ... you must hurry up because some cashmere blend yarn, 2 metres of Kokka fabric and a bag pattern await you. I just need an address to send them to!

  9. Can't wait to see what comes of lichen, it's a beautiful colour.

    I hope you had a lovely plane day trip!

  10. Those socks look like they'll be so lovely and warm. Perfect for a day like today. Love the lichen coloured yarn too!

    Enjoy your plane trip! How fun!
