Hello lovelies. Thanks for your patience whilst we (and when I say ‘we’ I obviously mean ‘Dave’) transferred the hosting of this site this week.
I was listening to the Love to Sew podcast this week (I’m seriously behind so am box-setting it) with the interview of Kate from The Foldline. One of the questions was along the lines of ‘what would you do differently’ and the answer was ‘marry a developer’ (I paraphrase, of course). After this weeks shenanigans I can heartily recommend a husband with mad tech skills. Without him I’m not sure this blog would exist, and I know for sure that my other site would be dead in the water.
Obviously such sterling work deserves a reward, so I finished the first of 3 pairs of Arne and Carlos for Regia socks for him.
He’s really pleased with these. We both love Regia yarns. Me because they knit up nicely, have a great range of colours, and the stripes match! Dave because he loves a good stripy sock and they’re comfy. They wash and wear well too!
This colour is lovely. The blues ares clear like a spring sky and the pops of peach and green remind me of early flowers, making them the perfect seasonal sock. The white could even be fluffy clouds!
Phew! That’s a bit poetic. Needless to say these are a big hit and I’m mostly forgiven for the migration being a bit of a bear.
But only because I’ve already cast on the second pair, and his Longfellow cardigan is on the home stretch! 😉
