First I won some amazing sock yarn in the May challenge over in the SockswithSarah group on Ravelry. We had to try something different in our sock making, so instead of toe up I decided to do top down and rather than plain vanilla, I added a little texture - ok so it's only a garter stitch panel, but that's alright, it's different for me, I will show pictures of them soon but in the meanwhile here is the gorgeous sock yarn that I won
Then my lace friends and I went to the Oyster Lace Day at Faversham (boy was it warm in that hall) and even though I only bought one raffle ticket (I know, cheapskate, but they were £1 each) I was very lucky and won a prize. The way of finding out which prize was rather novel as you then draw another ticket and have the prize it matches - like a tombola.
When I collected it I picked up the little package on the right which would have been great on it's own, but much to my surprise I found the rest was included too!
Life seems to be getting in the way of knitting and crochet lately, but I did manage to finish the Tiramisu blanket that I started on holiday.
