September review 2020

Yesss Halloween month is here! Time to dig out my face paints and costumes!

But before all that, let’s have a look at my yarnery in September.

Stash used this month: 1

Total stash used this year: 42.5

Stash remaining: 325.75

Makes for myself

Just a crochet rainbow and most of a pair of Hermione’s every day socks for myself this month. I’m happy with that, as I’ve wanted to make a rainbow like this for MONTHS and I just love the neon rainbow yarn from Siobhan’s Crafts.

Makes for others

I finished off a green pair of socks for the boyfriend and made a start on a purple pair. Cuz he’s amazing and bought me flowers as soon as I found out I was losing my job.

He is good to me.

I am most definitely still in the middle of a sock phase. But I also feel the urge to make another blanket getting stronger and stronger, so that’s probably going to happen imminently.

It just popped into my head that I did a “make 9” post away back when things were normal, which I haven’t even looked at for months. It’s probably a bit late to get them all done before the end of the year, but I think I’ll have a look at it again and at least try something from the list.

But then I will also be spending a lot of time looking for a job and then hopefully working at said job. We’ll see.

How was your September?

Sock it to me Monday 24

Just a quick post today, as it’s the boyfriend’s birthday and I’ve got decorating and baking to do!
His socks are finished aside from sewing the ends in:

I finished my first Hermione’s every day sock and the second one seems to be going a bit quicker so that’s good. I can’t wait to get them done.

Now, excuse me while I try to find the blu tack.

Please excuse the hasty photos – I completely forgot today is Monday!

The boyfriend’s socks only need a toe and the ends sewing in to be finished.

Hermione’s every day socks are bimbling along down the first foot.

How I wish I had gone for a plain foot instead of carrying on the fiddly pattern all the way down, so I could have been done and onto the second sock by now. Oh well, you live and learn! 

I’m pretty excited to get my socks finished because I have PLANS for the leftovers. I already think I’m going to love them, but we’ll see. Now, on with the current socks.

I’m kind of liking having two pairs of socks to work on at the same time, especially as one is simpler than the other. If I want a little bit of brain work, I knit my neon rainbow socks.

And if I want to just zone out while watching the new episodes of Lucifer (eeeeeh!!) then I can work on the boyfriend’s socks.

It’s perfect! Y’know aside from the ridiculously long DPNs I’m having to use for the rainbow socks, but you can’t have everything.
