Thing I’m working on Thursday 

Hello internet!

I have been working on just a couple of things this week. One is a gift for my best friend’s birthday gift – hand spun hand knit socks! She requested more after the last pair of hand knits, and this time I went to hand spun as well.

I am knitting them from my Ugly Rainbow yarn – the fibre was dyed by Anna Gratton ltd, it is the Tropical colourway.

I also made myself some sock blockers!

They arent perfect, but they are a lot closer in size than this photo suggests!

For sewing, I have been deconstructing a nightgown to make something else out of. It is broderie anglaise and beautiful. I believe it was a nursing gown my mother made herself when I was in-utero, and as I have no use for it in a similar way, I am going to make a blouse out of it as the fabric is too beautiful to waste! I’ll update you all once I have decided what to turn it into.
